There is growing momentum behind a cloud storage standard that can level the playing field and expand the market for cloud storage overall by removing the friction of moving from cloud to cloud. As Swift gains increasing functionality from the broad community of support, it just makes sense to use a standard API to guide the interface to those features. The Cloud Data Management Interface (CDMI) is a cloud storage standard for both the datapath to cloud stroage as well as a standanrd for managing the data once it is in the coud. CDMI is being implemented by commercial and academic organizations and there is a blueprint for incorporating an implementation in OpenStack. This talk will look at the existing features of Essex and planned features for Folsom, comparing them to the features that are already standardized in CDMI. The talk is intended for a technical audience that is already familiar with the workings of cloud storage in general and Swift in particular. (Session lead is Mark Carlson)
