The cloud computing standards of CEF

CloudEthernet Forum - CEF has decided to develop standards under a completely different approach compared to the traditional standards of cloud computing.

Is CEF has turned into a principles association for cloud computing stage and whether CEF can be given the declaration or not? 

That is the primary question when the CEF was framed in 2013, yet right now plainly time is still too soon to give an unmistakable answer. 

CEF started operations through tuning in to criticism from accomplices. Goodbye Communications is one of the principal organizations to focus on developing difficulties as their extensive clients scaled the server farm genuinely worldwide and bring them out.


CEF has been on high alert for early signs of immediate threat when most people are convinced that cloud computing is only temporary. Cloud computing will be a promising solution, but first need to have serious cooperation to address these issues before this cloud phenomenon dispersed into separate pieces.

When the organization MEF (Metro Ethernet Forum Forum- urban networks) began developing standards for Carrier Ethernet, their task is to convince the whole industry is a solution that Ethernet WAN (network expansion), and the creation of standards is a major part of the task.

The circumstances of the CEF is different, because the cloud service has been carried forward at full speed, requires a solid rails must be prepared in advance to ensure the market is not clogged. To do this, CEF must integrate three relatively new form as: network virtualization functionality NFV, SDN software-based networking and Carrier Ethernet standards. It is an area not well-understood, are complex and need to be put under pressure to deploy cloud computing system quickly.

Cloud computing also provides useful and annoyances like the advent of personal computers so. What happens next is a flow of new personal computers with OS series is not compatible. The end market is dominated by Microsoft and IBM PC, but there is no compatible with Macintosh and Unix, and everyone recognizes that the superior operating system is not necessarily an ideal operating system for business.


This is what the current CEF is risky for cloud computing: there are cloud services emerging very good, but they are not designed according to international standards. Enterprise once again will face problems trying to integrate its global system while relying on proprietary services incompatible whether these services are as good as any way. Industry standards will be needed to build the type of cloud service vendor-neutral (not dependent on the products of a particular vendor), necessary to support a corporate culture of this global authentic floating.

That is the goal of the project was announced in OpenCloud back to 2014. CEF has named its new standards are "Cloude 1.0", which show the development of advanced standards, essentially different from the usual.

Most norms associations are creating research in light of research criteria 3 months of operation of each field. They meet and civil argument to achieve accord on the measures should be, then the test rendition to be generally shared and is cleaned until the following form is concurred and acknowledged at the authoritative meeting. 

This strategy won't suit complex things and developing quickly as the cloud, so Cloud 1.0 will be produced as a persistent iterative process in light of an appraisal inside the reference design cloud computing (Cloud Reference Architecture), a standard test condition (Reference test Bed), and an assortment OpenCloud framework utilize cases (utilize case) in view of the genuine needs of the company.
