We're also missing a way of describing containers (e.g. hypervisors, platforms, etc.) and workloads (e.g. applications, virtual machines). CloudAudit provides a technical solution to the former (but it's out of scope) and Cisco's James Urquhart has been working on a descriptor format for the latter[2]. Both of these areas seem appropriate for IETF involvement, and indeed CloudAudit could be worked into a generic catalog service (e.g. the legal name of the provider, its location, logo, services, SLAs, etc.).
[Gene>] I fully agree with that

I think the best next step would be for to work torwards formalising the "clouds" effort somewhat, which will necessarily involve enumerating the opportunities for standards development and prioritising them. IETF-78 would presumably be a good forum for this activity (assuming it can't be done more inclusively on this mailing list).
[Gene>] In one of the previous e-mails to the list Bhumip has outlined areas of Cloud related interests. Then we had a discussion on the list where people expressed their preferences, suggestions and disagreements. Bhumip, since you were already doing this, would you please recap the list taking all that into account?

Cheers.
