European Cloud Computing Strategy to call for standardisation

ComputerWorldUK - The European Cloud Computing Strategy, due to be announced on September 28, will seek to cut through the current jungle of standards in the European Union.

The plans, put forward by the European Commission, will also try to establish guidelines for service level agreements in order to build public trust in cloud services.

The Commission admits that setting standards will not be easy. "Currently, individual vendors have an incentive to fight for dominance by locking in their customers, inhibiting standardised, industry-wide approaches," according to Commission's strategy document.
