Industry standards are the bedrock upon which product and service interoperability are built. Cloud platforms supporting existing and evolving standards make it easier to interconnect through pragmatic “use cases,” or interoperability scenarios, which help customers transition to the cloud on their terms. That’s why Microsoft is dedicated to working with the ecosystem of cloud solution and service providers to provide an open, reliable and global approach to the cloud that centers on interoperability and standards.
Last week, the Open Data Center Alliance (ODCA) announced that Microsoft joined the organization as a contributor member to provide resources to the technical workgroups to further the development of open, industry-standard usage models.
"In line with Windows Azure's commitment to openness and interoperability, we are pleased to join ODCA and work with industry leadership on standards for the cloud," said Bill Hilf, General Manager, Windows Azure.
