CloudWATCH focus on interoperability & standards Leveraging considerable expertise in standards development, implementation and testing over the past decade. Key role in shaping standards roadmaps for cloud computing. CloudWATCH will provide a portfolio of European and international use cases covering technical requirements, policy and legal requirements, including Service Level Agreement management. CloudWATCH will develop common standard profiles and testing around federation of cloud services. 6 Europe: over a decade of standards development and implementation through R&D for distributed computing infrastructures Why is this important? A profile on a standard clarifies in an unambiguous way how a standard has to be interpreted and implemented based on a specific use case. This overcomes ambiguities in specifications and the lack of real interoperability across different interfaces. CloudWATCH on standards & interoperability 17 March 2014, Athens CloudWATCH @ FIA2014
