Definition - What does Cloud Data Management Interface (CDMI) mean?

Techopedia explains Cloud Data Management Interface (CDMI)
Some of the finer points of working with a cloud data management interface involve how data is sent, stored and used. One example is the use of metadata, which is otherwise described as "data about data," as pointers or markers for any data being transferred or stored in cloud-based systems. The use of metadata is one typical element of creating, maintaining and presenting CDMIs.
