The aim of this training session is to provide a quick introduction into OCCI (Open Cloud Computing Interface), describe basic elements defined by the standard, and demonstrate its practical applications while focusing on virtual machine management in IaaS-based clouds as it pertains to the EGI Federated Cloud. It will also describe, explain, and demonstrate the concepts behind virtual machine contextualization and its applicability in various use cases. Attendees will get a chance to apply these concepts in a hands-on part of the session utilizing tools used within the EGI Federated Cloud environment, namely the rOCCI client and various server-side OCCI implementations.
