Open Standards vs. Open Source BoF
Tuesday, 7:00pm

Location:
Oregon Convention Center
777 NE Martin Luther King Jr Blvd
Portland, Oregon 97232

Room: E143

Description:
Jeff Hilland, Hewlett-Packard

There is a debate on the relevance of Industry Standards when faced with Open Source efforts. Yet government bodies still rely on and give preference to ANSI and ISO standards.

There is a meeting of standards bodies called the Alliance Partner Technical Symposium occurring at the same time as OSCON where industry standards bodies are meeting to discuss a variety of issues, including Open Source involvement. A meeting of both groups at OSCON presents a unique opportunity to carve a path forward to see if and how both groups can work together.

One example is DMTF’s “dual path” development of CADF (Cloud Auditing Data Federation) which is part of Celiometer in Open Stack. The Cloud Management WG is starting to work with OW2’s Sirocco effort around CIMI as an inter-operable cloud interface standard. SNIA’s CDMI represents a potential similar effort for cloud storage.

Are these the right ways forward? Can Open Source and Open Standards work together? Are there other paths that may be better? Does documenting an existing Open Source implementation allow Open Source the flexibility to evolve? Does implementing an existing standard represent a viable path? Can simultaneous development really work? Does the standards process need to change?

Please join us to discuss these issues.

If you would like to join the discussion in one of the OSCON BoFs, there is no need to formally sign up. You can check the list of prescheduled BoFs online (when the event gets closer), or check the BoF schedule board onsite at the Oregon Convention Center (near registration) for topics and locations.

 


SNIA TC Software Defined Storage Keynote

Thursday, 8:15am-9:00am
Room: 1 (Willamette)
Description:
Mark Carlson

Software defined storage has emerged as an important concept in storage solutions and management. However, the essential characteristics of software defined storage have been subject to interpretation. This session defines the elements that differentiate software defined storage solutions in a way that enables the industry to rally around their core value. A model of software defined storage infrastructure is described in a way that highlights the roles of virtualization and management in software defined storage solutions.

Learning Objectives

  • Learn about the characteristics of various software defined storage solutions
  • Understand a vendor neutral model that melds these characteristics together
  • Learn how those characteristics create flexible storage solution value
