IEEE Second International Workshop on Cloud Federation Management (CFM 2015)

Event Date: 
Monday, 7 December, 2015 - 09:00

From the Network to the Applications 

 Part of the 8th IEEE/ACM International Conference on Utility and Cloud Computing,  Limassol, Cyprus


Scope, Participants, and Objectives

The second installment of this workshop will continue to explore all aspects of cloud federation management. The notion of federation can be applied at any level in the system stack: from software-defined networks, to compute resources, to middleware services, to the highest application levels. Effective end-to-end federations will have to address all of these areas. Establishing trust among organizations will depend on how federated identity is managed, how resources access policies are decided and enforced, and even how network resources are configured on-demand to support trust relationships. Effectively addressing these issues will entail not only an enormous amount of technical work, but also an enormous amount of cultural adaptation to fully realize the benefits of cloud federation.
