The Cloud Standards Customer Council is an end user advocacy group dedicated to accelerating cloud's successful adoption, and drilling down into the standards, security and interoperability issues surrounding the transition to the cloud.
The Council provides cloud users with the opportunity to drive client requirements into standards development organizations and deliver materials such as best practices and use cases to assist other enterprises.
The Council complements existing cloud standards efforts and has established a core set of client-driven requirements to ensure cloud users will have the same freedom of choice, flexibility, and openness they have with traditional IT environments.
Membership to the council is free to end-users, learn more at www.cloud-council.org
The Council has published a handful of resources including the Practical Guide to Cloud Computing and its complement guide, the Practical Guide to Cloud Service Level Agreements. Additional Council authored resources include: Security for Cloud Computing: 10 Steps to Ensure Success and The Impact of Cloud Computing on Healthcare.
