DMTF spec simplifies cloud management

GCN, 08/29/12

The Distributed Management Task Force (DMTF) has released a new specification designed to simplify cloud infrastructure management and ensure that workloads can be easily moved among different cloud environments.

Many organizations view cloud computing, an on-demand model that focuses on the pooling and sharing of compute resources, as a way to make more efficient use of IT operations over time. However, as the market for cloud services has grown, cloud vendors have introduced their own interfaces that let users run private clouds.
