Please Note: The DMTF group formerly known as the Scalable Platforms Management Forum (SPMF) has been renamed the Redfish Forum.
Marking a major milestone for the standard, DMTF’s Redfish® turned five this month. Redfish, which has seen remarkable success in both industry adoption and implementation in five short years, has amassed the following:
Willie Nathan of Vertiv has been appointed to serve as DMTF’s new vice president of membership. Willie will play an important role in the organization as DMTF continues its commitment of providing solid value to its members.
Willie will oversee the organization’s membership initiatives while striving to grow its domestic and global presence. Please join us as we welcome Willie in his new leadership role with DMTF!
DMTF’s annual summer event – 2020 Alliance Partner Technical Symposium (APTS) – looked a little different this year. APTS 2020 was held virtually via Zoom! While we certainly missed the face-to-face interaction that APTS affords us, the virtual event was deemed a success.
Are you looking to learn more about DMTF’s Redfish®? The Redfish Forum – the group responsible for the Redfish standard – has created a new white paper, Redfish Certificate Management, designed to help implementers and clients understand the Redfish certificate data model as well as the common workflows clients might require to manage certificates.
DMTF has formed a new Tools Task Force within its Platform Management Components Intercommunication (PMCI) Working Group. The PMCI Working Group develops the Network Controller Sideband Interface (NC-SI), Management Component Transport Protocol (MCTP), Platform Level Data Model (PLDM), and Security Protocol and Data Model (SPDM) specifications that provide a comprehensive, common architecture for improved communication between management subsystem components.
DMTF’s Redfish®, Release 2020.2, 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 5 new schemas, 10 schema updates, and additional developer resources. The new release features support for StorageDevice Message Registry, which provides storage-specific events or status changes.
We’re almost a month away from the DMTF’s annual summer event – 2020 Alliance Partner Technical Symposium (APTS) – however, it will look a little different this year. APTS 2020 will be held virtually!
Be sure to join us July 20-24, 2020, via Zoom.
Created by developers, for developers, SNIA's Storage Developer Conference is planned for September 21-24, 2020. The call for presentations is still accepting proposals. You can gain exposure for the technical work you are doing, and DMTF members are invited to submit a proposal.
DMTF recently participated in the Open Compute Project (OCP) Virtual Summit, May 12-15, 2020, as an exhibitor. Executives and representatives chatted with attendees, provided additional information and answered questions about DMTF standards.
