Red Hat, in an effort to ensure cloud interoperability, has offered its Deltacloud cloud platform as an industry standard.
According to news agency Reuters, Red Hat has said that the industry, in order to adopt cloud computing, will require a common interoperability cloud standard to work from.
IDC research manager, covering enterprise virtualisation, software Gary Chen believes that the absence of sufficient interoperability among cloud service providers is one of the main issues preventing enterprises from shifting their operations to the cloud.
To fix this, Red Hat has offered its Deltacloud platform as a potential candidate to become an industry standard cloud platform to the Distributed Management Task Force (DMTF).
Red Hat product manager for the cloud, Bryan Che, said in a statement: “We do not want Deltacloud to be under the control of any one particular vendor, including Red Hat. If you want true interoperability and true portability, you need a third-party governance structure.”
