DMTF’s Redfish Forum to Host Live Webinar on the Redfish 2023.2 Release

Posted on Thu, 10/12/2023 - 09:16

DMTF’s Redfish Forum would like to invite anyone interested in learning about the Redfish 2023.2 release to join a live webinar, hosted on Zoom, on Thursday, October 26th at 9:00 a.m. PT.

The Forum chairs will present the contents of the release. A Round Table discussion will be held immediately following the webinar.

The latest release of the Redfish standard includes 31 schema updates and 6 new schemas including a NEW Outbound Connection capability that uses a WebSocket mechanism for connecting Redfish-enabled devices to Internet-based or cloud services. The release also includes NEW data model support for applications, containers, and operating systems, which increases Redfish coverage “up the software stack.”

Other Key highlights of the Redfish 2023.2 release are support for: 

  • MemoryRegion - supports CXL dynamic capacity devices (DCD)
  • Enhancements to the Drive and Storage models with new DriveMetrics and StorageControllerMetrics resources and StorageController actions

To improve developer access to and synchronization with the latest Redfish releases, a new public GitHub repository has been created to host copies of the published Redfish schemas and standard message registries.  The new Redfish-Publications GitHub repository contains the contents of DSP8010 and DSP8011, providing the ability to both download and create durable links to DMTF-maintained materials.

Next week, DMTF will be attending the 2023 Open Compute Project (OCP) Global Summit (October 17-19).  Be sure to stop by and visit us!

These latest enhancements are driven by the growth of Redfish and interoperability feedback received from implementers.

Attendees will be able to ask questions during the Q and A session via the chat function or immediately following the webinar, a Round Table discussion will be held. Redfish Forum members will be available to engage in a dialogue with attendees. Details on how to join the Round Table discussion will be provided during the live webinar. We look forward to a lively discussion!
