Certain commercial entities, equipment, or materials may be identified in this document in order to describe an experimental procedure or concept adequately. Such identification is not intended to imply recommendation or endorsement by the National Institute of Standards and Technology, nor is it intended to imply that the entities, materials, or equipment are necessarily the best available for the purpose.
On this page, we gather the highest-level protocols, definitions and standards that area applicable widely to the cloud computing use cases identified elsewhere in this twiki. See also the list of related pages for standards that are applicable more specifically to the detailed breakdown of cloud computing areas and deployment models given in the NIST definition of cloud computing. Links to these pages appear at the bottom of the page.
