Abstract

   There is no standardized method to describe assets used in a cloud
   such that they can be moved from one cloud to the next independent
   of the underlying architecture. This document defines Cloud Assets
   as a lightweight description of cloud resources and proposes a
   standardization of Cloud Assets into three major categories:
   Resource Assets, Component Assets, and Composite Assets.
