CDMI Conformance Assurance Solution


Organizations as well as individual consumers are increasingly adopting cloud solutions, even as cloud storage companies are expanding their product portfolio of backup and recovery, storage and archival solutions to address this growing demand. However, the lack of interoperability across products leads to vendor lock-in, and entails significant costs and operational inefficiencies in managing multiple cloud storage providers. To drive product standardization, companies are therefore developing products that comply with the Storage Networking Industry Association (SNIA) Cloud Data Management Interface (CDMI) specification.

TCS’ CDMI Conformance Assurance solution tests cloud storage products for conformance to SNIA CDMI standards and reports issues to be fixed. With SNIA appointing TCS as an authorized certified services and test provider for offering support throughout the testing process, our solution empowers companies to deliver superior quality, CDMI conformant products, faster to the market.

Our Offering

With the growing demand for cloud storage solutions comes the need for standardization across products from different cloud storage providers. SNIA’s CDMI specification addresses this need, but demonstrating conformance with this specification is a key challenge for cloud storage companies. Also affecting time to market is the late identification of issues and defects in the product development lifecycle (PDLC). To establish product credibility and quality requires rigorous testing by skilled staff, which in turn escalates product development costs and delays launches. Building these capabilities in-house adds to the organization’s operational overheads and directs focus away from core product development initiatives.

CDMI Compliance Assurance SolutionTCS’ CDMI Conformance Assurance solution enables efficient product testing and provides reports detailing the results for conformance to the CDMI specification.  The solution follows TCS’ mature four step framework comprising Strategize, Plan, Automate and Test. Our testing solution for cloud storage vendors encompasses test plan creation, test case design, test case automation and test execution and reporting. With reports identifying the precise defects, you address issues early in the PDLC, realizing more mature and stable products. The efficient defect correction reduces the overall cost of defect fixing, improves product quality, ensures compliance with CDMI specifications and enables faster Go-To-Market (GTM) strategies.
