Abstract: 

Cloud Data Management Interface Specifications are now moving towards profile based categories. This is due to the increased focus where organizations are planning to adopt profile based CDMI in their products, example Service, ID and Self Storage Management profiles. TCS has been focusing on implementing ‘CDMI Automated Test Suite’ and with new developments is focusing towards incorporating profiling to the same. In this proposal we will share the approach and challenges for testing of profile based scenarios towards CDMI profile based compliance, of the cloud products. Also, we will share additional challenges / learning towards testing of CDMI Products for compliance. These learning’s will serve as a best practice and a ready reference for other organizations in developing their own CDMI product suit.
