A broad term used to denote virtualization at any of several different system layers Outsourcing of hardware, system environment, or services Things just run in the cloud, i.e., somebody elses data center Generally from a single provider through a very simple API Simple API eases adoption at the cost of insight and control Effective business model for provider to sell virtualized, back-end data center resources Infrastructure Level Platform Level Application Level Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) Acquire a set of machines you can login to Example: Amazon EC2 Platform as a Service (PaaS) Acquire a set of hosting environments Example: Google App Engine (Python) Software as a Service (SaaS) Build an application from pre-defined services Example:

11 © 2009 OpenGridForum An informal group of Standards Development Organizations (SDOs) collaborating to coordinate and communicate standards for cloud computing and storage Wiki: Mailing List: Different SDOs bring different but complementary technologies & capabilities Storage, execution models, deployment models, service level agreements, security, authentication, privacy All interested, committed persons and organizations with relevant technical skills can participate A Little History Enterprise Cloud Conference, Open Group, Feb. 3, San Diego SATCCI, OMG, March 23, Arlington/Crystal City Cloud Standards Summit, OMG, July 13, Arlington/Ballston Standards for the US Cloud Storefront, NCOIC, Sept. 21, Fairfax

16 © 2009 OpenGridForum SNIA CDMI Cloud Data Mgmt Interface CDMI early draft available Cloud Data Management Interface for Cloud Storage

17 © 2009 OpenGridForum A Proposal to organize a set of open cloud demos to organize a set of open cloud demos Drive progress on best common practices & standards, interoperability testing, compliance testing,... Anything requiring stakeholder collaboration to drive progress Build critical mass of stakeholders on demo scenarios Continual polling and coordination across the community Forge Agreement on: Clear Goals Clear Schedule (time-box the process) Clear Responsibilities Properly Provisioning the Effort Collaboration produces good ROI Concrete connection between investment of time, money & people with concrete results Caveat: Every element here is critical Caveat: Every element here is critical

18 © 2009 OpenGridForum Summary OGF involved in both geospatial & cloud standards Joint projects being pursued in both areas OGC Web Services (OWS-7) testbed US Cloud Storefront and Major stakeholder engagement critical to progress Many basic use cases cataloged by What use cases are important for this group? Cloud-hosted geospatial applications? How do you want to proceed? Contact me: lee at aero dot org
