ODCA Mission

The Alliance Charter

The Open Data Center Alliance is focused on the widespread adoption of enterprise cloud computing through best practice sharing and collaboration with the industry on availability of solution choice based on ODCA requirements.

From its inception to today, the Alliance has seen a maturation of the cloud market place. To meet this new stage of enterprise cloud readiness, the ODCA has announced a new organizational charter. This new charter has driven the creation of the ODCA Cloud Expert Network and workgroups to deliver work focused on this charter.

By using our members’ leading experience with deploying cloud solutions and services combined with our rich body of requirements documentation, the Alliance will strive to help enterprises across the globe with acceleration of adoption. Whether your company is just now beginning its cloud adoption journey or if you are well embarked in a migration process, the ODCA is ready to engage with you.
