Cloud Storage Technologies

There is no question that cloud services now constitute a significant component of IT spending. The SNIA Cloud Storage Technologies Initiative (CSTI) is committed to the adoption, growth and standardization of storage in cloud infrastructures. This encompasses data services, orchestration and management, as well as the promotion of portability of data in multi-cloud environments. The SNIA Cloud Data Management Interface (CDMI), for example, is an open ISO/IEC standard that enables cloud solution developers to meet the growing need of interoperability for data stored in the cloud. This standard is applicable to all types of clouds – private, public and hybrid – with multiple commercial open source implementations in use worldwide.
