DMTF Releases Redfish™ Standard Updates

Continuing its aggressive development timeline, the latest specification and schemas for the DMTF’s Redfish™ standard are now available. Designed to meet the expectations of end users for simple, modern and secure management of scalable platform hardware, the DMTF’s Redfish is an open industry standard that specifies a RESTful interface and utilizes JSON and OData to help customers integrate solutions within their existing tool chains.

Now available for download, the 2016.1 publication includes new Redfish schemas for AttributeRegistry, Bios, Drive, Memory, MemoryCollection, MemoryMetrics, SecureBoot, Storage, StorageCollection and Volume. In addition, this release includes minor updates to the Chassis, ComputerSystem, Event, Manager, Power, Resource, SimpleStorage and Thermal schemas, along with all previously released schemas using updated file naming conventions.
 
Released separately as a Work in Progress (WIP) for public comment, the DSP8010-WIP-2016.0.9a publication includes new Redfish schemas for providing firmware update services (UpdateService, FirmwareInventory) and PCIe switch and device management (PCIeDevice, PCIeFunction, PCIePort, PCIeSwitch, and PCIeZone, and respective Collection schemas). 
 
In addition, DMTF has released version 1.0.2 of the Redfish Scalable Platforms Management API Specification, which defines the protocols, data model, and behaviors for Redfish.
