The Jumble of Cloud Computing Terms: Standardize or Customize?

Posted 11.30.10 by

In the Information week , August 9th Edition there is an article “Define the Cloud, Then try to tame it.” It references the DMTF, a standards body formerly known as the distributed management task force. They are trying to cut through the jumble of cloud computing terms and hope to write a public set of API’s that cloud vendors use to supply standard cloud services.

Is this appealing to everyone or should the cloud suppliers be encouraged to provide their own API’s?
