Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"Oracle has released details of a proposed standard API for
managing the cloud. The draft specification, released Wednesday,
has been submitted to the Distributed Management Task Force (DMTF)
for inclusion with the organization's proposed Infrastructure as a
Service (IaaS) standard.
"The computer giant said its proposed Oracle Cloud Elemental
Resource Model API covers the common elements of a cloud
implementation by specifying the relevant machines, storage volumes
and networks. Specifically, the spec submitted to the DMTF
describes how a machine can be provisioned from an image; how a
volume can be attached to a machine; and how a machine can connect
to a network."
