TM Forum and Open Data Center Alliance Target Clouds

The TM Forum and the Open Data Center Alliance (ODCA) are working together to develop standards for enterprise cloud services. The ODCA and the ECLC plan to work on two projects per year with the ODCA leading the definition of enterprise requirements, and the ECLC conducting proof of concept projects to evaluate how new requirements address enterprise needs. Their initial projects will define specific aspects of virtual private cloud, including the computing aspects of Infrastructure-as-a-Service such as the creation of standards-based service catalogs and standard units of measure--or ways to quantify or describe different cloud services such as speed, storage capacity, security and bandwidth.
