DMTF

Distributed Management Task Force, Inc.

Standards and Technology

 

Supporting implementations that enable the management of diverse traditional and emerging technologies – including cloud, virtualization, network and infrastructure – the DMTF works to simplify the manageability of network-accessible technologies through open and collaborative efforts by leading technology companies.

 

DMTF Technology Diagram

DMTF standards enable effective management of IT environments through well-defined interfaces that collectively deliver complete management capabilities.

  • For an animated illustration of how DMTF’s standards simplify management at each level of today’s infrastructures (including cloud environments), view the DMTF Management Technologies animated diagram.
     
  • For a more technical view of our standards and technologies (and the relationships between them), technical developers can view the DMTF Components Diagram.

 

DMTF Working Groups

DMTF standards and technologies, listed to the right, are developed by the DMTF's Working Groups. Overseen by the DMTF's Technical Committee, Working Groups – comprised of DMTF members – help create the standards, specifications, and other DMTF documents in support of managing enterprise and Internet environments.

DMTF members are encouraged to contribute to DMTF Working Groups via our private, members-only workspaces. Non-members, learn more and join the DMTF to participate

 

DMTF Forums

DMTF Forums focus on issues in specific areas, including conformance programs. Visit the DMTF’s Join Us page to view a current list of Forums, and to find out how to participate.
