sop -- Service Orchestration and Desciption for Cloud Services


About sop
English (USA)

Cloud services need to interoperate across cloud providers, service
vendors and private/public domains. To enable this interoperability,
there is need for a standard wire-format for exchanging service
information. This mailing lists is for discussing protocols, data
formats and server descriptions formats that allow cloud services
to be discover and used across private and public domains. Using
these, it would be possible to interoperate diverse APIs and cloud
services across service providers, service vendors and service users.
