Abstract: The Cloud community is a vivid group of people who drive the ideas of Cloud computing into different fields of Information Technology. This demands for standards to ensure interoperability and avoid vendor lock-in. Since such standards need to satisfy many requirements, use cases, and applications, they need to be extremely flexible and adaptive. The Open Cloud Computing Interface (OCCI) family of specifications aims to achieve this goal: originally developed for the deployment of infrastructure Clouds, it can also be used in different service and deployment models. This article will outline the OCCI specifications and demonstrate how they can be used in data management-related setups. Not only can OCCI be easily integrated but it can also be used to deploy data-centric applications (which are secured by SLAs), support data-awareness in scheduling, as well as directly interface with data management tools in a PaaS-based manner. To demonstrate this, three use cases are discussed in this article.
