PORTLAND, Ore., July 23 -- OW2, the global open source community for open source infrastructure software and application platforms unveiled the program of the first Cloud Interoperability Week, at the O'Reilly Open Source Convention. A global event, Cloud Interoperability Week aims to contribute to the emergence of an ecosystem of standards-compliant interoperable cloud solutions.
Recognizing open source collaborative innovation's key role in shaping the cloud computing landscape, Cloud Interoperability Week will be a great opportunity to experiment with prominent open cloud projects.
Cloud Interoperability Week will be held simultaneously in Europe – Madrid, Spain – and in the US – Santa Clara, CA – during the week of September 16-20, 2013. The event includes cloud plugfest testing sessions in Santa Clara and Madrid, a one-day workshop, and hands-on tutorials. The event is co-organized by OW2 in cooperation with five major standard organizations, DMTF, ETSI, OASIS, OGF and SNIA, and the OCEAN European FP7 project.
Interoperability Testing Sessions will take place from September 16-19 in Santa Clara and from September 19-20 in Madrid. Participants will be able to test the compliance of their solutions with cloud standards such as OCCI, CDMI, CIMI, OVF and CAMP.
Participants attending the Workshop Day, on September 18 in Madrid, will discuss the state of the art in cloud computing standards and interoperability. Confirmed contributions include:
The Tutorials, scheduled from September 19-20 in Madrid, will showcase leading open cloud projects and IaaS platforms including OpenStack, OpenNebula, CloudStack, CompatibleOne and ProActive. These tutorials will take place alongside the testing sessions.
“OW2 is proud to bring open technologies to the table at Cloud Interoperability Week,” says OW2 CEO, Cedric Thomas. "It will be a great opportunity to experiment with state-of-the-art open cloud projects,” he adds.
Cloud Interoperability Week in Madrid will be co-located with an OGF meeting (OGF 39) and the European Grid Infrastructure (EGI) Technical Forum 2013.
Registration is free and open to all.

About Cloud Interoperability Week
Kicking off September 16, 2013, the first Cloud Interoperability Week promotes interoperability and standards in cloud software and services in both open source and commercial projects. Cloud Interoperability Week brings together cloud stakeholders such as developers, project leaders and open cloud communities. The event includes cloud plugfest testing sessions to test compliance with main standards, a one-day workshop, and hands-on tutorials. This event is supported by the European Commission and co-ordinated by ETSI, OCEAN FP7 project and the OW2 Community in cooperation with DMTF, OASIS, OGF and SNIA. Participants may attend remotely or in person in Santa Clara, CA, September 16-18, or Madrid, Spain, September 18-20. Visit http://www.cloudplugfest.org/cloud-interoperability-week
