Open Standards and Private Clouds

Private cloud architectures may be moving to the enterprise, but this ComputerWorld Blog suggests that open standards for cloud computing may be more than a decade away. As noted in the blog, that may be fin for now as most organizations are still experimenting with small implementations within test and development environments.


Eventually there will be one standard but not in this decade.

"Heterogenous management across cloud clusters is not easy today because every hypervisor has its own API - and each vendor has its own myopic vision of a world that will eventually standardize on their design. That's fine for now - most organizations are still experimenting with small implementations within test and development environments or within other internal IT functions, and they're often using homogenous cloud-in-a box offerings built on top of one hypervisor (usually VMware's), where everything - hardware and software - is integrated into one neatly wrapped package."
