Abstract: 

In addition to standardizing client-to-cloud interactions, the SNIA Cloud Data Management Interface (CDMI) standard enables a powerful set of cloud-to-cloud interactions. Federations, being the mechanism by which CDMI clouds establish cloud-to-cloud relationships, provide a powerful multi-vendor and interoperable approach to peering, merging, splitting, migrating, delegating, sharing and exchange of stored objects. In last two SDC presentations, the basics of CDMI federation were discussed. For year three, we will review what is involved in making federations interoperable across multiple vendors, demonstrate two common use cases enabled by federation, and discuss the ongoing work within the SNIA Cloud Storage Technical Working Group to add federation as a formal part of CDMI 1.1, which is currently under development
