17 Oct 2012 : The Storage Networking Industry Association (SNIA) today announced that its Cloud Data Management Interface (CDMI) specification, the first industry-developed open standard specifically for data storage as a service as part of cloud computing, has been designated an International Standard (IS) by the Joint Technical Committee 1 (JTC 1), a joint effort of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) for the purpose of standardization in the field of Information Technology

With the backing of storage industry leaders, vendors, and the SNIA, the Cloud Data Management Interface (CDMI) specification standard is aggressively addressing a total cloud storage solution before the chaos of proprietary advances and partial solution standards erode the integrity of the cloud model. Over 180 individuals from more than 60 organizations are working on CDMI.
CDMI serves as the communication vehicle between the various applications for accessing and managing the data. Key to the concept is a pool of resources that can
be accessed in small increments on-demand, which is made possible by storage virtualization. The result is a more robust system at a fraction of the cost of traditional
The Public Administration Government Agency for Digitalization in Italy, recently announced that an official document approved from DigitPA (http://www.digitpa.gov.it/ ), has defined the use of SNIA's Cloud Data Management Interface (CDMI). For more information Click Here.
The Cloud Storage TWG is also starting to scope work for a version 1.1 of CDMI that will include a number of extensions as they are implemented by multiple vendors. For more information about this topic go to http://www.snia.org/cloud/newcontent.

The SNIA has published the CDMI Cloud Storage standard for implementation by cloud storage vendors as well as Public and Private clouds. This tutorial will overview the features of the new standard and explain how interoperability between clouds is achieved.
• How this cloud storage standard can achieve interoperability and what that means to you.
• How you can use the cloud storage standard both internally for private clouds as well as for public clouds.
• Who has implementation plans for CDMI and how will the implementations roll out.
Are you ready to move your SharePoint Environment in the Cloud? Maybe you are looking to adopt a private or hybrid cloud strategy? Today, I suspect the answer is probably no, although its something we have all began to consider as a directive over the next 12-18 months.
The CDMI Reference Implementation - Developer's Guide is written for programmers and application developers who create custom applications for Cloud Storage Systems. This document, along with the Cloud Data Management Interface Version 1.0, provides the information that developers need to create custom applications for a Cloud Storage System.
