Hi all,

Thanks for interesting presentations.  To me the cloud without common or
option for a standardised interface/api is not a cloud its a set of service
platforms. We need to move forwards define the topic areas for
standardisation but essentially its all the elements you have for
subscribers to access a data platform from identity thru transport. Then
there are the service management aspects and the service provider
capabilities who want logs session or usage records and finally the
platform owner would need some or at least be able to support the above....

So possible topic areas for definition are :

Service user 
- access 
- transport
- service discovery maybe

Service provider
- Service management (also VM management - movement etc...)
- Subscription management
- charging billing etc...
- basically these are all FCAPS aspects Fault, Configuration, Accounting,
Performance, Security

Platform provider - not so sure what standards apply so long as the
platform itself provides the APis the boxes can be anything 
- Management 
- also FCAPS
