On July 24, 2013, at the Distributed Management Task Force’s (DMTF’s) co-located Alliance Partner Technical Symposium and Management Developers Conference events, DMTF and the Storage Networking Industry Association (SNIA) successfully demonstrated interoperable cloud management utilizing three existing cloud standards simultaneously. For the first time, the DMTF’s Cloud Infrastructure Management Interface (CIMI) and Open Virtual Format (OVF), an ISO standard, and SNIA’s Cloud Data Management Interface (CDMI), also an ISO standard, were shown in multi-vendor implementations. This was part of a series of Cloud Plugfests, the next of which will take place during Cloud Interoperability Week, being held September 16-20, 2013, in Madrid, Spain, and simultaneously in the U.S. in Santa Clara, Calif.
