Discover the world’s first technical cloud computing standard for the second time

Have you heard of the first technical standard for Cloud Computing—SOCCI (pronounced saw-key)? Wondering what it stands for? Well, it stands for Service Oriented Cloud Computing Infrastructure. It is the technical standard that The Open Group developed early this year. HP, as a Platinum Member of The Open Group, has played a leadership role in the definition of this standard. I co-chaired this project and have represented this perspective on behalf of The Open Group on multiple analyst briefings and interviews. I will be presenting this standard for the second time at the HP Discover Conference in Frankfurt after having presented it at HP Discover in Las Vegas earlier this year.

Service Technology cements the connection between SOA and Cloud Computing

For a while now, I have been blogging about service-oriented architecture (SOA) principles being a powerful foundation for the evolution to cloud computing. In fact, Forbes blogger, Joe McKendrick picked up on this and referenced it in his ZDNet post on 5 signs that SOA has morphed into cloud. So did The Open Group in this article on the Top 5 tell-tale signs of SOA evolving to the Cloud. In other words, there is widespread agreement on the close connection between SOA and cloud computing. So, when I came upon McKendrick's post on Before There Was Cloud Computing, There was SOA, I was wondering what else there is to be said on this subject -- especially from someone who has already highlighted this connection several times across various posts.
