Please Note: The DMTF group formerly known as the Scalable Platforms Management Forum (SPMF) has been renamed the Redfish Forum.
DMTF has released Version 3.3 of the System Management BIOS (SMBIOS) Reference Specification, the premier standard for delivering management information via system firmware. Since its first release in 1995, the widely implemented SMBIOS standard has simplified the management of more than two billion client and server systems.
DMTF’s Redfish®, Release 2019.2, is now available for public download. Designed to deliver simple and secure management for hybrid IT and the Software Defined Data Center (SDDC), the latest release of the Redfish standard includes 17 schema updates, revisions to the Redfish specification, and additional developer resources.
DMTF’s Security Protocol and Data Model (SPDM) Specification, Release 0.95, is now available for public download as a Work in Progress (WIP). This specification – developed by DMTF’s Platform Management Components Intercommunication (PMCI) Security Task Force – continues to incorporate the input of the organization’s Alliance Partners to help align component authentication and firmware integrity across the industry.
Continuing its commitment to industry outreach and education, DMTF will participate in SC19, November 17-22, 2019, with a booth representing the Redfish® standard. SC19 is an international conference for high performance computing, networking, storage, and analysis.
At the upcoming 2019 Storage Developer Conference (SDC), DMTF President Jeff Hilland will present the latest update on the ecosystem around DMTF’s Redfish®.
