Hi Diego,

We are aware of the IEEE work on Intercloud, but I'm not sure if there is a concrete technical proposal in place. I might not have seen it, in which please do point it out to me.

Thanks, Ashish

All cloud services are being enabled through proprietary APIs today, which don't interoperate. To interoperate across vendors, providers and customers, we need an open standard. Ability to go across administrative domains is a basic requirement.

Using SOP, a variety of services could be accessed or advertized. Separation between service-independent and service-dependent pieces makes the scheme extensible to any type of service - current or future.

Though I've had no time to make a comparison in depth, I could not avoid noticing that SOP and the Intercloud effort recently started inside the IEEE P2302 Working Group are very much related, if not overlapping. Alignment should be pursued, I think.

Be goode,
