DMTF has announced that it is partnering with the Global Inter-Cloud Technology Forum (GICTF) to collaborate on the development and adoption of cloud management standards.

GITCF, organized with the approval of Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications of Japan is a non-profit organization for development and standardization of cloud computing technologies and interfaces to achieve inter-cloud collaboration. DMTF has been working to develop and promote cloud standards, such as the Cloud Infrastructure Management Interface (CIMI) through their cloud management initiative, which includes contributions from various working groups.

Through this alliance partnership, the two organizations will collaborate on cloud standards development to coordinate their cloud model/terminology and their inter-cloud management use cases and resource models. Additionally, DMTF’s CIMI standard will serve as a good reference to connect GICTF’s inter-cloud interface to DMTF standards.
