DMTF and The Open Group to Collaborate on Extensions to Redfish

DMTF and The Open Group are extending their long-standing alliance for standards-based IT management. The new effort will focus on utilizing DMTF’s Redfish® API for out-of-band management in the telemetry process automation space.

Delivering both in-band and out-of-band manageability, DMTF’s Redfish continues to expand to address customer use cases and technology for a holistic data center management experience. The Open Process Automation™ Standard - O-PAS™ - is a standards-based, open, secure, interoperable process control architecture to address both technical and business issues for process automation developed by The Open Group Open Process Automation™ Forum (OPAF). As O-PAS requirements are defined for out-of-band telemetry for utilization metrics, The Open Group will collaborate with DMTF on new Redfish Profiles, extensions and more. 

The specifics of this new work between the two groups is outlined in an updated work register, available in PDF here. For a full list of industry Alliance Partners and OEMs leveraging and expanding Redfish, please visit https://redfish.dmtf.org/alliancepartners.
