CohesiveFT Joins Open Data Center Alliance
New ODCA Solution Provider Member To Promote Open, Interoperable Cloud Computing Standards
CohesiveFT brings expertise in enterprise IT cloud adoption to the ODCA and the company will focus on leading discussions on best practices for cloud migration and spotlighting trends and issues with the open, interoperable delivery of compute infrastructure as a service, and cloud security.
Chris Swan, CohesiveFT CTO and former ODCA board member with UBS said, "It's great to be rejoining the infrastructure working group and contributing to new usage model development in areas like Software Defined Networking (SDN)."
The Open Data Center Alliance is comprised of more than 300 companies that represent over $100 billion in annual IT spending. The Alliance's primary work is the publication of usage models that give detailed definitions of IT requirements to address specific challenges and priorities in data center evolution and, specifically, cloud deployment.
