Good news for all those who are looking for guidance on Cloud technologies... Under OpenForum Europe's leadership a number of stakeholders in Cloud technologies and services have developed the Open Cloud Declaration. It addresses the full spectrum of what is needed for successful and trusted Cloud computing services.
Special focus is on openness and an open, competitive market for Cloud technologies in order to avoid lock-in and dependency on a single or specific group of providers. In general, the Declaration is a major contribution for forward looking actions regarding the adoption of Cloud technologies and the commitment of market players to drive Cloud technologies as the major computing paradigm of the future.
