Finally after some time now the Open Cloud Computing Interface working group became official. We will focus on the creation of an API for remote management of ‘Infrastructure as a Service’ based clouds.
The latest charter can be found here: http://forge.ogf.org/sf/projects/occi-wg. That is also the link to our working space in the internet. The official webpage is: http://www.occi-wg.org.
So feel free to join, hop on the project and get involved in the creation of one of the first standards in Cloud Computing.

March 5th, 2009 • Comments Off on Open Grid Forum – Day 4
Today was another interesting day @OGF 25. One session hosted by Wolfgang Gentzsch and Martin Antony Walker dealt with the topic: From Grids to Clouds. Interesting ideas and thoughts what the similarities are. Also some nice ideas about which applications would favor HPC, Grid or Cloud based solutions.
My talk in this session was about the RESERVOIR project: http://www.ogf.org/OGF25/materials/1596/20090224_RESERVOIR_overview_tmetsch-v0.1.pdf
Here are some more pictures from OGF. Not the best weather today but still a nice meeting area:
