4 Factors That Interoperability And Portability In Cloud Computing

Introduction

Cloud computing is still in its infancy. As it grows and matures, interoperability and portability will become more important factors to enable enterprise adoption.

1. Software-defined infrastructure

The first factor is software-defined infrastructure (SDI). SDI is the ability to define, create and manage the virtual infrastructure layer through software. This means that you can use a single interface to manage multiple cloud platforms.

This allows you to move workloads between different cloud providers, enabling interoperability between them–and portability if needed as well.

2. Cloud-native applications

  • Cloud-native applications

Cloud-native applications are designed to run in a cloud environment, and they’re typically built using microservices architecture. They can be deployed on a variety of public cloud platforms and can also be deployed on-premises or in hybrid environments.

3. Cloud native networking

The third factor that contributes to interoperability and portability in cloud computing is the cloud native networking.

This is about software-defined networking (SDN) and network functions virtualization (NFV). It’s about decoupling the control plane from the data plane, as well as decoupling it from the network itself.

4. Blockchain-based security and smart contract

Blockchain is a distributed ledger technology, it’s not just a database. Blockchain is immutable and decentralized, meaning that there’s no single point of failure in the system and everyone has access to all data stored on it at any given time.

Blockchain can be used to create smart contracts which are computer programs that run on blockchain networks. Smart Contracts allow two parties who don’t trust each other (that could be another organization or individual) to exchange money/assets/information without having any third party involved in this process.

Cloud computing is still in its infancy. As it grows and matures, interoperability and portability will become more important factors to enable enterprise adoption.

Cloud computing is still in its infancy. As it grows and matures, interoperability and portability will become more important factors to enable enterprise adoption. Interoperability refers to the ability for two systems that operate on different platforms or protocols to communicate with each other without any modifications or special effort by either party. Portability refers to an application’s ability to run on multiple platforms without changes or customizations being required.

In order to make their cloud deployments successful, enterprises need access to services that are both interoperable and portable across multiple clouds–even if those clouds are operated by different providers.

Conclusion

As cloud computing matures, interoperability and portability will become more important factors to enable enterprise adoption.
