Cloudscape III – Driving Europe’s Cloud computing Strategy - took place on the 15 and 16 of March in Brussels offering the perfect opportunity for experts, developers and end-users in the cloud computing space to become part of the cloud standards process. The event, hosted by the EC-funded SIENA initiative, brought a 360° overview on the Cloud computing landscape, covering benefits for enterprise, research and government alongside challenges spanning scalability, data movement, ownership and privacy, security and legal issues, openness and interoperability.

SIENA European Roadmap on Grid and Cloud Standards for e-Science and Beyond
This is the third, and last (for the moment), report that I would like to recommend. It nicely complements the other two reports (The Future of Cloud Computing and Priorities to Advance Cloud Computing). SIENA European Roadmap on Grid and Cloud Standards for e-Science and Beyond addresses requirements, technologies, and interoperability and standards for e-infrastructure. I am part of the Editorial Board of this roadmap that in this first version includes use cases and position papers collected for the Cloudscape III event.
