HelixNebula model is being referenced as example multiple cloud environment by NIST/IEEE Joint Cloud Federation WG group

The US National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and IEEE are standing-up a new, joint working group on cloud interoperability and federation.

NIST will have the charter to “define” federation for the USGov and identify possible and necessary areas of standardization. Specific standardization efforts could then be taken-up by IEEE P2302.

Helix Nebula is being referenced by NIST/IEEE Joint Cloud Federation WG during its Kick-Off meeting on August 31st, 2017 as good example of Independend/multi-cloud environment, that you can see in the slide attached:


The NIST/IEEE Joint Cloud Federation public working group will focus on developing an approach to advancing the Federated Community Cloud, which falls under Requirement 5 of the U.S. Government Cloud Computing Technology Roadmap, USG-Wide Use of Cloud Computing Standards. The scope of the project is to fully understand and describe the elements of federated cloud computing. This will involve developing and gaining consensus on a common federated cloud computing vocabulary, as well as developing an underlying conceptual model of what federated cloud computing is, its major components, and users/stakeholders.
