CloudWATCH: Assessment of Cloud Profile interoperability testing

This document reports on actions CloudWATCH has taken around cloud standards development and certification. It describes the six cloud standards profile workshops organised by CloudWATCH as well as details on the cloud standards profile developed by the project. These workshops relate to the CloudWATCH portfolio of European and international use cases to identify common requirements from a security and interoperability perspective. We have used these to develop and test a set of common standards profiles around federated cloud services. Find out more about the portfolio
