The Cloud Interoperability Plugfest project (or "Cloud Plugfests" for short) is a co-operative community series designed to promote interoperability efforts on cloud-based software, frameworks, and standards among vendors, products, projects and implementations. The series supports ongoing and continuing interoperability efforts among and between the sponsoring organizations, and with the cloud community at large. These efforts include organized software demonstrations, in-person developer gatherings, and continuous access to professional-grade cloud testing frameworks and tools.
The 10th Cloud Plugfest will take place as part of the Cloud Interoperability Week to occur September 16-20, 2013 sponsored by the Distributed Management Task Force (DMTF), European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI), the Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards (OASIS), the Open Cloud for Europe, JApan and beyoNd (OCEAN) project (OCEAN), the Open Grid Forum (OGF), the OW2 global open source community and the Storage Networking Industry Association (SNIA). These standards organizations and open-source communities are joining forces to promote access to information regarding standards-compliant interoperable cloud solutions and their implementation through this developer-oriented multi-featured event.
Continuing our long-standing pattern of providing multiple convenient opportunities for participation, remote participation by registrants from other organizations and locations is supported at Cloud Plugfests, subject to the conditions of the participation agreement.
