RRA Secures Stronger Leadership in Global Cloud Computing Standardization (March 28)
- Korean researcher designated to serve another term as CCFWG convenor of JTC 1/SC 38
□ The National Radio Research Agency (RRA), a research arm of the MSIT, announced that ETRI’s researcher Lee Seung-yun was designated as a Cloud Computing Fundamentals (CCF) Working Group convenor again in the 22nd cloud computing international standard setting meeting held from March 25 to 29.
※ JTC 1/SC 38 is a meeting for Cloud Computing and Distributed Platforms involving some 50 participants from 15 countries to develop standards for cloud computing, a key technology of the Fourth Industrial Revolution.
※ Established in 2011, JTC 1/SC 38 is made up of two Working Groups, 31 Participating members and 13 Observing members including the US.
□ The CCF Working Group which Korea serves a consecutive term as the convenor develops key standards such as defining concepts and formulating policies related to cloud computing.
ㅇ Recently, the area of standardization is being expanded to span Service Level Agreements (SLAs), Edge Computing, and Cloud Native.
* A cloud service-level agreement (SLA) is an agreement between a cloud service provider and a customer, specifying services, conditions, responsibilities of the two parties.
** Edge computing is a technology that processes data produced by internet of things devices closer to where it is created and later sends data to the central server.
*** Cloud Native refers to container-based environments designed to run in the cloud.
□ In particular, detailed work on the cloud data flow, category, and standards where Korea is taking the lead was carried out in this meeting.
ㅇ This standard defines the scope of data processing and syntax, which is essential for data transfer in the cloud.
□ RRA Chief Jeon Yeong-man emphasized that the cloud computing standardization is the most critical area of standardization of the Fourth Industrial Revolution.
ㅇ Jeon added that the RRA will continue to support international standardization for the Korean technologies to consolidate their leading position in the global cloud computing market.
