OASIS Cloud Application Management for Platforms (CAMP)

Contributor(s): Caroline de Lacvivier

Cloud Application Management for Platforms (CAMP) is a specification intended to define the application program interfaces (APIs) and artifacts that need to be offered by a Platform as a Service (PaaS) cloud provider.

The goal of CAMP is to examine the similarities between platform-as-a-service (PaaS) offerings and use those similarities to produce a universal API that is language, framework and platform-agnostic. The CAMP specification uses REST-based app management strategies to foster interoperability between cloud environments and simplify the building, running, administration, monitoring and patching of applications in the cloud. 

The CAMP specification is being submitted to the Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards (OASIS) standards group and will be finalized in an open development process. Common CAMP use cases include moving on-premise applications to private or public clouds and re-deploying applications across cloud platforms from multiple vendors.
