The Cloud Industry Forum, representing the SLALOM project, participated in a meeting of the EC MUSA project on 11 March in London.
The MUSA project is focused on facilitating decision-making and negotiating for multi-cloud deployments, such as used when adopters wish to deploy across multiple clouds for redundancy and scale. The MUSA approach requires particular focus on service levels which are measurable in a consistent way across the diverse environments involved. This need overlaps with SLALOM’s objective of developing common metric specifications.
