I feel till 2015, every cloud provider will define their own SLAs, interfaces, performance parameters and security features.However, for interoperability's sake atleast the networking aspect of it needs to be standardized urgently. And what about the different service delivery models?

Efforts to create standards are always welcome, but often the standards are not completed until the industry has moved on to something else. Cloud computing has unfortunately entered the stage where the phrase is used to describe almost any data center technology so the time left to set standards is shrinking very quickly!

Does it seem to anyone that there are too many cloud based standards? It may have been better for Intel to pass on supporting this group and supporting a pre-existing cloud standard committee.

Intel is almost everywhere on EE Times. First, new fab in US then investment in lithotool and now in cloud computing.

Well, maybe if there are enough working groups providing input to the standards groups they can get it somewhat right. Of course, this usually seems to mean several different sets of desires and inputs to the standards group and a great deal of compromise and, for everyone else, confusion. The mentioned goals of interoperability, flexibility and industry standards would certainly be welcomed.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
