A practical cloud storage solutions guide with full coverage of Cloud Data Management Interface (CDMI) Cloud Data Management and Storage A Standards-Based Approach provides in-depth details on the implications of the cloud phenomenon--its challenges and its opportunities. The book offers complete guidance for implementing storage systems through utilization of the CDMI standard which provides interoperability, efficiency, and a plug-and-play user experience to cloud services and applications for the cloud. Organized with both IT management and IT architects in mind, this book is divided into four main sections: Capabilities of the Cloud; Leveraging the Cloud for Better IT Services; Implementation; and the CDMI Standard for Data Management & Storage. Part I details cloud concepts, benefits and challenges to the cloud, and walks you through cloud architectures and use case examples. Part II explains the increasing need for data management in the cloud, metadata, policy-based data management, and discusses the trade-offs involved in implementing a self-service cloud storage API that's interoperable and scalable. Part III offers in-depth explanations of adopting and implementing cloud data storage systems and details key storage management efficiencies, including use cases, building code, and extending the code. Finally, Part IV provides a detailed explanation of the CDMI standard, its code, capabilities, objects, containers, domain resources, security, and more. Author Mark Carlson chairs the technical work group responsible CDMI and is also a major author of the standard. Shows how to migrate to the cloud by implementing an interoperable system that achieves an organization's business goals without being locked into particular vendors Explains how to utilize public storage offerings and provide IT services with benefits to the business, including rapid deployment, converting capital expense to operational expense, elasticity of resource usage based on demand, and the ability to aggregate IT costs into simple, client-facing metrics Demystifies the complexities and business drivers of the cloud while demonstrating the capabilities of standards-driven interfaces, how they achieve interoperability and ease the lock-in of proprietary APIs
