Cloud Working Group Developing Standard APIs

Cloud Working Group Developing Standard APIs

The DMTF is planning to create a standard vocabulary and set of application programming interfaces for cloud computing vendors.

On Monday, the DMTF (formerly known as the Distributed Management Task Force) issued two papers titled “Architecture for Managing Clouds” and “Uses Cases and Interactions for Managing Clouds.” They lay the foundation for the organization’s next goal: creating standard APIs for infrastructure as a service providers.


“If we come up with a good API, all the cloud suppliers would be able to implement it,” said DMTF president Winston Bumpus. If the group succeeds in its goal creating cloud computing standards, it would make it easier for enterprises to move from one cloud computing vendor to another in the future.
