Lewis Curtis explains the benefits of using SML for modeling the structure and policies for data centers in his recent blog post. This excellent post has two errors:

·         It uses the term “System Modeling Language” instead of “Service Modeling Language”

·         It conveys the impression that only Microsoft is promoting SML. Sure, Microsoft is promoting SML, but the effort to standardize SML is being driven by eleven industry leaders: BEA, BMC, CA, Cisco, Dell, EMC, HP, IBM, Intel, Microsoft, and Sun.
