This document responds to the contractual deliverable D5.2 of the SLALOM Support Action, an EC-funded project (grant 644720) with the mission to develop standard technical and legal models for cloud computing contracts and SLAs.
The purpose of this document is to summarize:
- the dissemination and promotion activities performed so as to raise awareness of the SLALOM models among the cloud adopters;
- the received feedback from the cloud adopters with respect to both the legal and the technical SLALOM models during each phase of the project;
- the actions performed to address the received feedback; and
- the actions that should follow after the end of the project.
To this end, section 2 describes the strategy that was designed during the 1st phase of the SLALOM project, “Awareness”, so as to reach out to as many cloud adopters as possible. Section 3 provides a short overview of the initially received feedback during the “Awareness” phase of SLALOM project while section 4 highlights how this feedback was addressed. This initial feedback mainly refers to the concerns and high level comments of the cloud adopters. Accordingly, Section 5 introduces further feedback from the cloud adopters based on the drafted SLALOM legal terms and the SLALOM technical specifications after the interaction of the project with ISO. Last but not least, Section 6 presents the needed actions to address the comments from Section 5 and the actions that will remain for post-project work, i.e., for the sustainability body. The document concludes in section 7.
