The OASIS international consortium has launched the Cloud Application Management for Platforms (CAMP) Technical Committee, a project to define the interoperability standard for managing applications in Platform as a Service (PaaS) environments. CAMP will leverage similarities between commercial and open-source PaaS products to produce a simple API that is language-, framework-, and platform-agnostic. Using CAMP, companies will be able to migrate their cloud applications from one PaaS vendor to another by mapping the requirements of applications to the specific capabilities of the underlying platform.
"Companies are starting to experiment with PaaS, but even as they do, it becomes clear that variations between the vendors' application interfaces will make it hard to move applications from platform to platform. That looks a lot like vendor lock-in, and it's putting customers off," said Rachel Chalmers, VP of Research at The 451 Group. "It is encouraging to see that this issue has been grasped by the vendor community and is being addressed within the OASIS framework."
"CAMP’s goal is to define a simple standard RESTful API along with a JSON-based protocol, with an extensibility framework that enables interoperability across multiple vendors' offerings. Using CAMP, users can manage their application lifecycles and move applications between clouds easily," said Martin Chapman of Oracle, chair of the OASIS CAMP Technical Committee. "We expect CAMP to foster an ecosystem of common tools, plugins, libraries and frameworks, which will allow vendors to offer greater value-add."
Work on CAMP was initiated in late 2010 by a group of seven companies, Oracle, Red Hat, Rackspace, Cloudsoft, Huawei, CloudBees, and Software AG. They transitioned the project to OASIS in order to ensure CAMP would benefit from broad industry participation in an open, collaborative setting.
"CAMP is one of several new Cloud standardization projects at OASIS that make use of JSON and REST," noted Laurent Liscia, OASIS executive director and CEO. "We see the standardization of CAMP as an important step in guiding the industry into an ecosystem of interoperable and portable cloud systems."
The CAMP Technical Committee is open to all interested parties, and new members are encouraged to join at any time. Archives of the work are accessible to both members and non-members, and OASIS invites public review and comment on the work.
Support for CAMP
"Enterprises are getting serious about hybrid cloud computing – combining their on-premise capability with cloud service provider offerings. Enterprises are also zeroing in on PaaS – cloud middleware if you will – as the most effective way of exploiting cloud. However, to de-risk their hybrid cloud strategy and avoid PaaS lock-in, they view genuine multi-cloud support as absolutely essential and the work of the OASIS CAMP TC as critical, since cloud-agnostic application management is the key to cloud interoperability."
-- Duncan Johnston-Watt, CEO
"Organizations clearly desire better cloud portability, usability and interoperability for PaaS environments. JumpSoft is committed to supporting open standards in our application management products. CAMP provides a standard API for cloud application management solutions to ensure customers will have a choice in their cloud technology and services."
-- David Sawyer, CEO
"As part of the OASIS Technical Committee for CAMP, Oracle looks forward to continuing to help define a simple REST-based approach for management of cloud-based applications. In addition, CAMP can provide a framework for extensibility to support the evolution of products, while enabling portability across clouds and compatibility with PaaS-aware and PaaS-unaware application development environments."
-- Jeff Mischkinsky, senior director, Oracle Fusion Middleware
"As a Sponsor member of OASIS, Software AG welcomes the formation of the CAMP Technical Committee. As a co-author of the CAMP specification, we hope our contributions to this TC effort will serve to advance CAMP as a standard that is broadly adopted, enabling interoperability between vendor products while offering increased choice for customers. We are excited about the emerging standards efforts in the Cloud space, that is expected to transform the way business is done in the future."
-- Prasad Yendluri, VP & Deputy CTO
"Standing Cloud is committed to helping cloud customers avoid lock-in, so that they can leverage the cloud without limiting their future options. Industry standards are the most powerful way to ensure this flexibility for the long term, and we are enthusiastic about our participation in the OASIS CAMP Technical Committee to help realize that vision."
-- David J. Jilk, CEO

WebRTC sits at the intersection between VoIP and the Web. As such, it poses some interesting challenges for those developing services on top of it, but also for those who need to test and monitor these services. In his session at WebRTC Summit, Tsahi Levent-Levi, co-founder of testRTC, reviewed the various challenges posed by WebRTC when it comes to testing and monitoring and on ways to overcome them.

For basic one-to-one voice or video calling solutions, WebRTC has proven to be a very powerful technology. Although WebRTC’s core functionality is to provide secure, real-time p2p media streaming, leveraging native platform features and server-side components brings up new communication capabilities for web and native mobile applications, allowing for advanced multi-user use cases such as video broadcasting, conferencing, and media recording.

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.

The cloud market growth today is largely in public clouds. While there is a lot of spend in IT departments in virtualization, these aren’t yet translating into a true “cloud” experience within the enterprise. What is stopping the growth of the “private cloud” market? In his general session at 18th Cloud Expo, Nara Rajagopalan, CEO of Accelerite, explored the challenges in deploying, managing, and getting adoption for a private cloud within an enterprise.

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
