Red Hat Makes Step Toward Common Cloud Computing API with DMTF

The Apache Deltacloud project is an open source implementation of a RESTful web service API

Red Hat, Inc., a provider of open source solutions, on Wednesday announced that it has submitted the API specification for Apache Deltacloud to the Distributed Management Task Force (DMTF) as part of its participation in the DMTF Cloud Management Work Group. Red Hat’s submission to DMTF is a step forward in the company’s effort to offer users of Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) clouds the benefits of portability across cloud computing deployments.

The Apache Deltacloud project is an open source implementation of a RESTful web service API abstracting common proprietary IaaS cloud management APIs. Started by Red Hat in September 2009, the project was moved to the Apache Incubator earlier this year to underscore its importance for the cloud computing ecosystem, where it is undergoing incubation at the Apache Software Foundation, and to allow it to grow and evolve within a community built on Apache’s well-known values of openness and meritocracy. Innovation in the Deltacloud project has been instrumental in the progress of Red Hat Cloud Foundations, announced in June 2010.

“As cloud computing continues to expand into today’s enterprises, interoperability and portability become increasingly important,” said Scott Crenshaw, vice president and general manager, Cloud Business at Red Hat. “We’re excited to submit the Deltacloud API to DMTF to help bring this level of interoperability to all clouds. Red Hat is continuing to help enterprises build real cloud today.”

The Deltacloud project provides DMTF with one of the only open cloud APIs in development today. With this, it brings the principles of open source, such as user-driven innovation, to the users of today’s cloud computing APIs.

“As we continue making strides toward establishing open management standards for cloud computing, contributions from industry leaders like Red Hat help drive consistency and ease of use for all cloud users,” said Winston Bumpus, DMTF president. “We’re pleased to receive Red Hat’s submission of the Deltacloud API specification and look forward to their ongoing collaboration in our work to facilitate interoperable cloud management.”

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next...

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people.

Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
