The SNIA has published the CDMI Cloud Storage standard for implementation by cloud storage vendors as well as Public and Private clouds. This tutorial will overview the features of the new standard and explain how interoperability between clouds is achieved. Now that the standard is available, what should you be requiring from your cloud vendors? How can you expect this standard to roll out in implementations?

Learning Objectives

• How this cloud storage standard can achieve interoperability and what that means to you.
• How you can use the cloud storage standard both internally for private clouds as well as for public clouds.
• Who has implementation plans for CDMI and how will the implementations roll out.
