DMTF and The Gen-Z Consortium Form Alliance

Posted on Wed, 09/12/2018 - 09:45

DMTF and The Gen-Z Consortium (Gen-Z) have formed an alliance to help ensure the two organizations’ standards are coordinated and aligned. Gen-Z is an open-systems interconnect designed to provide memory-semantic access to data and devices via direct-attached, switched or fabric topologies.

As part of this alliance, the organizations will collaborate on extensions to DMTF’s Platform Management Components Intercommunication (PMCI) standards, including planned development of a new MCTP Gen-Z Transport Binding Specification. The two groups also will create and maintain extensions to DMTF’s Redfish® API to support Gen-Z management.
