DMTF China Chapter Announces Launch of Website and Translated Documents

PORTLAND, Ore. – June 2, 2015 – Distributed Management Task Force, Inc. (DMTF) today announced the launch of the China Chapter website, The site includes translated DMTF website content and specification documents available in Chinese for the first time in the organization’s 20-year history. Documents on Cloud Infrastructure Management Interface (CIMI) are immediately available for download with plans to translate more content in the future.

“The DMTF China Chapter is pleased to make this information publicly available. Given the importance and relevance of cloud standards in today’s marketplace, we focused our early efforts on translating CIMI documentation,” said Yinghua Qin, DMTF vice president of regional chapters. “We look forward to making additional website content available in coming months.”

CIMI addresses the management of the lifecycle of infrastructure provided by an IaaS Provider. The standard specifies a Representational State Transfer (REST)-style protocol using HTTP and the basic resources of IaaS – machines, storage, and networks – are modeled. The model is not specific to HTTP, and it is possible to map CIMI to other protocols to meet user needs.
