OCEAN - support for Open Cloud projects, Yuri Glikman, Fraunhofer FOKUS
Abstract: The fundamental goal of OCEAN (http://www.ocean-project.eu
) is to foster the emergence of a sustainable open source cloud ecosystem in Europe, by generating greater efficiency among collaborative research projects on open source cloud computing. OCEAN is maintaining an online directory of FLOSS outcomes of cloud projects (www.ocdirectory.org). The project is working provide a functional mapping of these outcomes, in relation with key standards and reference models from leading standardization organizations such as NIST, ETSI, DMTF, OGF, in what we call an Open Cloud Interoperability Framework and Roadmap. OCEAN supports projects by providing an online service, based on the ETICS framework enabling open cloud projects to build, test and check the quality of their software, including interoperability testing and compliance to cloud standards. Finally, OCEAN is organising Plugfests to foster cooperation and integration between projects.
