Zenoss Joins Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards (OASIS)Contributes to Advancing Open Standards for the Information Technology Sector (June 04, 2012)
AUSTIN, TX -- (Marketwire) -- 06/04/12 -- Zenoss, a leading provider of management software for physical, virtual, and cloud-based IT infrastructures, today announced that it has joined the Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards (OASIS).
OASIS is a not-for-profit consortium that drives the development, convergence and adoption of world-wide open standards for security, Cloud computing, SOA, Web services, the Smart Grid, electronic publishing, emergency management, and other areas. The consortium has more than 5,000 participants representing over 600 organizations and individual members in 100 countries, effectively representing a broad segment of public and private sector technology leaders, users and influencers.
"With the on-going drive towards cloud, the rapid provisioning of applications and services, as well as increased transportability between providers, the IT industry requires a standard specification for service templates to represent the complex relationships between components," said Alan Conley, Zenoss CTO. "This aligns very well to Zenoss's ability to build and maintain real time service models to support service impact, root cause analysis and many other service management capabilities."
Two important committees currently developing open standards affecting cloud computing include the Advanced Message Queuing Protocol (AMQP) Technical Committee as well as the Topology and Orchestration Specification for Cloud Applications (TOSCA) Technical Committee. The AMQP TC advances a vendor-neutral and platform-agnostic protocol that offers organizations an easier, more secure approach to passing real-time data streams and business transactions.
The TOSCA TC works to enhance the portability of cloud applications and services.
