Cloud Application Management for Platforms (CAMP) is a specification designed to ease management of applications, including packaging and deployment, across public and private cloud computing platforms.

According to the technology vendors behind the CAMP specification, which includes CloudBees, Cloudsoft Corporation, Huawei, Oracle, Rackspace, Red Hat and Software AG, CAMP is intended to provide a common basis for developing multi-cloud management tools as well as a REST-based approach to application management.

The CAMP specification provides a common development API that can work across multiple clouds without excessive adaptation and is compatible with PaaS-aware (Platform as a Service) and PaaS-unaware application development environments, both offline and in the cloud.

CAMP will be submitted to the Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards (OASIS) for development of an industry standard.
