OCCI Enables pan-European Cloud Interoperability

Posted September 29th, 2012 in News and tagged , , , , , , by admin

At the EGI Technical Forum in Prague, the FedCloud task force presented their progress on bringing various standards together in order to compose a federated cloud within Europe. The presentation ended with an impressive live demonstration of that very work.

 

During the presentation eight different sites participated offering a set of standardised interfaces. Upon those sites cloud resources were allocated on very different infrastructure management frameworks but unified through the OCCI API. In one part of the demonstration 5 virtual machines were provisioned simultaneously, using OCCI, in Cyprus, Germany (2), Sweden and the Czech Republic. This was followed by a similar demonstration of provisioning storage and accessing that storage using CDMI through the same cloud resource providers.
