Title: Will Cloud Computing be Open and Interoperable?
This BoF will look at work done in the DMTF Open Cloud Standards Incubator and its alliance partners as it relates to the workloads and interfaces between cloud service providers and cloud service consumers. The goal of cloud standards is to improve cloud consumer agility and define a set of architectural semantics that unify the interoperable management of workloads and resources between enterprises and cloud computing infrastructures. This BoF will  look at  the core use cases, and the reference architectures which are the basis for open cloud provider interfaces, common data models, and standards profiles, which are essential to achieve cloud computing interoperability.
