Re: Open Cloud Computing Interface Blueprint Implementation


Hey Andy,

thanks for keeping the ball rolling!  Please keep me posted about
progress with the OpenStack/FutureGrid/OCCI integration - we are on
standby to run experiments whenever that integration is done...

Best, Andre.

By having this API exposed out of OpenStack, large projects such as FutureGrid [4], EGI FedCloud [5], FIware [6] and CompatibleOne [7] (as well as others some listed here [8]) can leverage OpenStack as an infrastructure platform and in so growing the OpenStack community and adoption all the more! This also has the backing of recommendations from the UK [9] and German Governments [10]. Details of what it can do can be found in the OpenStack wiki [11]. This is work that has been carried out by Intel Labs Europe in the Cloud Service Lab and is partially funded by FIware [6] and echoes in spirit, as does the OCCI working group's principles, much of what Thierry Carrez wrote in his recent blog post [12].
