Next Generation Data Center Conference

DMTF President Winston Bumpus to Speak at NGDC

Attendees at the upcoming Next Generation Data Center Conference & Expo can learn more about the many bottom-line benefits of management standards during a presentation by DMTF President Winston Bumpus on Tuesday at 3 p.m., August 7. Entitled “Advantages of Standards-Based Management for Data Center Optimization” the session will explain how the DMTF’s cross-platform standards can form the foundation of an end-to-end management strategy in today’s distributed infrastructures.

The three-day NGDC conference will take place on August 7-9 in San Francisco, where DMTF, an Association Sponsor of the event, will host live demonstrations of the DASH and SMASH standards for cross-platform management at DMTF Booth #335 (near the Ethernet, Grid and HPC Pavilion). NGDC attendees will be able to see for themselves how the DMTF’s Desktop and mobile Architecture for Systems Hardware (DASH) and Systems Management Architecture for Server Hardware (SMASH) initiatives can dramatically simplify cross-platform management while reducing systems management, administration, and integration costs.

The NGDC Conference will feature presentations by leading technology experts and innovative IT executives discussing what is happening in the data center—the challenges, successes and pitfalls—and what is likely to happen with data centers in the future.
 

Advantages of Standards-Based Management for Data Center Optimization
As organizations look to maximize investments in the heterogeneous data center, the issue of vendor interoperability comes to the fore. Capitalizing on multi-vendor industry standards is at the heart of any data center optimization effort. This session will address the challenges and opportunities in a multi-vendor environment, and explain how the DMTF's cross-platform standards including Web Services for Management (WS-Management), the Systems Management Architecture for Server Hardware (SMASH) Initiative, the Common Information Model (CIM), and Web-Based Enterprise Management (WBEM) can form the foundation of an end-to-end management strategy in today's distributed infrastructures.

Visit us at booth # 335 to see the following demos:

  • DASH - The DMTF’s Desktop and mobile Architecture for System Hardware (DASH) Initiative is a suite of specifications that takes full advantage of the DMTF’s Web Services for Management (WS-Management) specification – delivering standards-based Web services management for desktop and mobile client systems.
  • SMASH - The DMTF's Systems Management Architecture for Server Hardware (SMASH) initiative is a suite of specifications that deliver architectural semantics, industry standard protocols and profiles to unify the management of the data center. The Server Management (SM) Command Line Protocol (CLP) specification enables simple and intuitive management of heterogeneous servers in the data center independent of machine state, operating system state, server system topology or access method, facilitating local and remote management of server hardware in both Out-of-Service and Out-of-Band management environments.
