OpenStack is an open source cloud computing platform which is a joint venture by Rackspace and NASA. OpenStack consists of many projects such as nova (compute), swift (storage), glance (VM images), etc. swift is used as object storage. Cloud Data Management Interface (CDMI) is a new standard defined by Storage Network Industry Associate (SNIA). It focuses on inter-operability among various cloud service providers. Currently all cloud services are not CDMI compliant but companies are working on it. CDMI implementation is available which adds support for the CDMI adaptor specification on OpenStack object storage (swift) project.
