Andreessen labels DCML 'HTML of the datacenter'

Hoping to bring utility computing closer to fruition, 25 companies last week unveiled the XML-based standards initiative DCML (Data Center Markup
Language). The standard is designed to serve as the foundation on which users can build and deploy enterprise-capable applications.

Led by Opsware, Electronic Data Systems, Computer Associates, and BEA Systems, the founding companies also announced the formation of the DCML
Organization, which will be largely responsible for advancing and maintaining the proposed standard.

The long-range goal of DCML is to introduce a simpler way to achieve interoperability among widely disparate IT systems, thereby encouraging the use
of utility computing among larger datacenters.
