Supporting General Federation for Large-Scale Collaborations

The IEEE P2302 “Standard for Intercloud Interoperability and Federation (SIIF)” defines topology (clouds, roots, exchanges, and gateways), functions (name spaces, presence, messaging, resource ontologies, and trust infrastructure), and governance (registration, geo-independence, trust anchor, compliance and audit) for cloud-to-cloud interoperability and federation without addressing intra-cloud (within cloud) operation.


The NIST “Public Working Group on Federated Cloud (PWGFC)” has been working for close to two years to develop an approach to advancing the Federated Community Cloud, with a framework to support seamless implementations of disparate community cloud environments.


The Open Research Cloud Alliance has been actively developing consensus across the scientific community stakeholders aimed at identifying and working collectively to mitigate and resolve those impediments, whether driven by technology choice, regulatory obligations or historical practices that interfere in the ability of globally dispersed researchers to effectively gain access to research data and resources.


This discussion session will center around possible federation deployment and governance models that embody the key concepts and design principles being developed in the NIST/IEEE Joint WG and ORCA. We encourage developer, users and cloud operators to provide use case and feedback as we move forward in these efforts.

Monday, April 29, 2:00pm-2:40pm (8:00pm - 8:40pm UTC)
