DMTF Announces Adoption of Cloud Management Standard by ISO and IEC

DMTF today announced that the organization’s Cloud Infrastructure Management Interface (CIMI) standard has been adopted and published by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) as ISO/IEC 19831:2015. CIMI’s publication by ISO/IEC as an International standard for Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) management is expected to accelerate worldwide adoption and interoperability, and is the latest DMTF standard to achieve this designation.

DMTF’s CIMI standard describes the model and protocol for management interactions between a cloud IaaS Provider and the Consumers of an IaaS service, helping facilitate portability between cloud implementations that support the standard.
