RESERVOIR (Resources and Services Virtualization without Barriers) is a European Union FP7 project that has enabled massive scale deployment and management of complex IT services across different administrative domains, IT platforms and geographies. OCCI is used in RESERVOIR in order to enable the interoperation of it and SLA@SOI. The details of this integration can be found here.
The BigGrid project uses OCCI as one of their interfaces to allow the provisioning of virtual machines on their infrastructure.
We’re pleased to announce that a F2F meeting for OCCI will be organized in Boulder, Colorado, USA. Thanks to our colleague Mark Carlson from Oracle who helped set this up. This will be a continuation of the Cloud Plug Fest and all our collaboration efforts with other standards and groups up until now.
The meeting will happen during the DMTF Alliance Partner Technical Symposium (16th to 20th of May) on Monday and Tuesday. Please feel free to register and point out that your are going to be available.
During this F2F we would like to address and discuss some topics (the agenda is not fixed yet and can change if needed):
- Update on OCCI activities,
- OCCI demos,
- CDMI/OCCI integration,
- OCCI/OVF integration,
- Initial JSON rendering discussions,
- Collaboration with NIST,
- Security-related discussions.
A focus output for this event will be a document that will describe the intergration of major standards regarding clouds, most notably DMTF’s OVF, SNIA’s CDMI and of course our own OGF OCCI. It will describe how these standards working together can create an open and standards-based cloud service offering.
We would like to invite all to bring in their ideas on this topic and look forward to seeing you in Boulder!
