The objective of the Cloud iNfrastructure Telco Taskforce (CNTT) is to develop a framework for standardizing Cloud Infrastructure to increase interoperability between the virtualized workloads and the underlying infrastructure, and to allow for validation and conformance testing. After only a little more than a year, the taskforce is well on its way towards meeting its goals. It has developed a reference model framework for supporting several reference architectures, and has started the process of actualizing these into reference implementations and compliance badging of usable cloud infrastructure. Developed by the CNTT community, this whitepaper gives an overview of the framework; reference models, architecture, implementation, and conformance; future roadmap, and how to get involved.
