Specialist Task Force 331:
ICT GRID Technologies Interoperability and
Who we are:
Team Leader: Geoffrey Caryer
Team Members: Julian Gallop
What we did :
The STF addressed, in general, IT-Telecom (Information Technology and
Telecommunications) convergence and, in particular, the lack of interoperable
GRID solutions built by IT in conjunction with the Telecom industry. At the
request of TC GRID, this scope was extended to include "cloud compouting".
The STF have produced an Interim and Final Report for delivery to the EC.
ETSI deliverables produced by the STF include:
(ETSI TR 102 659-1 v1.1.1
and v1.2.1) Study of ICT GRID interoperability gaps; Part 1:
Inventory of ICT Stakeholders
(ETSI TR 102 659-2
v1.1.1 and v1.2.1) Study of ICT GRID interoperability
gaps; Part 2: List of identified Gaps
- ICT Grid

- A workshop of Grid
- DTR/GRID-0002 (ETSI
TR 102 766 v1.1.1) ICT GRID Interoperability Testing Framework
and survey of existing ICT Grid interoperability solutions

Why we did it:
European Commission, in its 2006 ICT Standardisation Work Programme invited ETSI
to carry out a study on Interoperability & Validation of International
Open Grid Standards and to consider the impact of these standards on the NGN.
This activity is part of the response to that invitation.
activity on the global convergence and evolution of IT infrastructure and
electronic communications transformation is aligned with the
NESSI ETP and the
Next Generation GRID (NGG) vision of the SOKU (Service Oriented Knowledge
is to actively support and involve GRID stakeholders in the standardisation of
GRID test specifications in the IT-Telecom converged world.
|Start of the work on ICT Grid interoperability state of the art and gap analysis
|Start of work on proposals to solve identified interoperability gaps
|Early Deliverables due
|Interim Report to EC/EFTA D10
|Publication of Deliverables
|Final Report to EC/EFTA D10
ICT GRID Interoperability State of Art:
A short introduction to the state of the art of grid, cloud computing and the
work of the STF can be found in the following 4-pages white paper. More details
can be found in the above deliverables.
In order identifying whether IST projects with a Grid focus are interfacing with
standards and whether there are interoperability concerns, the following
questionnaire was drafted by the STF and sent to relevant IST Grid projects.
