Do you proposed perhaps a framework draft as a starting point?

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
