Intel and a series of large companies such as BMW, Lockheed Martin and Shell and J.P. Morgan Chase have formed the Open Data Center Alliance, a group of IT buyers that aim to make cloud computing more interoperable.

The effort is designed to push Intel's Cloud 2015 vision, which goes like this (statement):

  • Create a federated cloud where enterprises can share data between internal and external resources.
  • Automatically secure applications and resources.
  • Improve energy efficiency.
  • Use "client aware" clouds that will recognize your device and adjust accordingly.

This Open Data Center Alliance includes 70 companies that represent $50 billion in annual IT spending. Intel hopes to be the ringleader---technically a "unique advisory role"---as these companies pool their cloud research capabilities.

That buying power is why this open data center push is interesting. Given the buying clout, vendors will have to play the cloud interoperability game. While it's unclear how successful this alliance will be it is at least shedding the spotlight on cloud interoperability, a big emerging issue. In a blog post, Mario Muller, BMW, vice president at of IT infrastructure at the automaker, said:

As CIOs and data center managers we want all of the things that the next-generation IT infrastructure promises, yet there are significant challenges in evolving to internal and external clouds, including security, compliance, need for greater levels of efficiency, and simplification of IT infrastructure manageability.

Muller said the group's goal is to push its roadmap forward:

        @mega proyek I'm the same way, I do my best to remain neutral. It's hard, if you communicate with the person the other person dislikes, then you fall out of favor with them! I simple can't dislike a person, just because someone else does, I just can't.

    Yeah, people love to repeat that "competition is good for users" mantra but it's not true when half of the players in a given market are phoning it in (so to speak.) The half-baked crap being dumped into the market by most of these companies will actually hurt users when they get suckered into buying them. At this point, there are only one or two phones I'd want to own. If there were indeed true competition, with a batch of companies truly trying to compete, not just dumping beta products into the bargain bins in the hopes of snagging the profits of 2-year contracts, then the consumer would benefit.

      Yeah, I really know of 2 phones that I would want - the iPhone and the Android. The lack of competition is truly a killer but unfortunately there is not a lot any one person can do. <a href="http://www.outdoorlightsgalore.com/outdoor-security-lighting">Outdoor Security Lights</a>|<a href="http://www.outdoorlightsgalore.com/landscape-lighting/how-to-choose-the-right-outdoor-chandelier">Outdoor Chandelier</a>
