Please Note: The DMTF group formerly known as the Scalable Platforms Management Forum (SPMF) has been renamed the Redfish Forum.
A new installment of the DMTF’s popular “Redfish® School” YouTube series is now available: The Case for Redfish. Designed for anyone in IT management (developers and non-developers alike), this video helps explain the environment before the Redfish API was developed, why it was needed and how the standard has reinvented IT management.
Registration is open and the agenda is posted for the upcoming 2018 Alliance Partner Technical Symposium (APTS). Make your plans now to join us for this eleventh annual gathering, being held July 23-27, 2018, in Portland, Oregon. Time is running out!
The DMTF recently published the latest release of the Common Information Model (CIM) Schema, version 2.51. The fifty-first update to the Common Information Model (CIM) since the launch of 2.0, this widely used standard provides a common definition of management information for systems, networks, applications and services.
DMTF’s Desktop and mobile Architecture for System Hardware (DASH) standard is a suite of specifications that takes full advantage of the organization’s Web Services for Management (WS-Management) specification – delivering standards-based web services management for desktop and mobile client systems.
The DMTF has released Version 3.2 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.
Final Call for Papers – Submit now for the 14th International Conference on Network and Service Management
The deadline to submit a paper for the 14th International Conference on Network and Service Management (CNSM) is quickly approaching. All papers submissions are due by June 12, 2018.
With the aggressive development of its Redfish® standard, DMTF continues to address customer use cases and technology in converged IT infrastructure management. An API designed to deliver simple and secure management for hybrid IT and the Software Defined Data Center (SDDC), new versions of the Redfish schema and specification, as well as additional developer resources, are now available.
New items just released include:
As part of its global standardization work, the DMTF provides resources and information for users and developers worldwide. Recently the organization, along with its Regional Task Force in Japan, participated in the 27th annual Japan IT Week Spring, May 9-11, 2018, in Tokyo.
DMTF and the PCI Industrial Computer Manufacturer Group (PICMG) have formed an alliance to help ensure the two organizations’ standards are coordinated and aligned in the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) domain. PICMG is a nonprofit consortium of companies and organizations that collaboratively develop open standards for high performance telecommunications, military, industrial, and general purpose embedded computing applications.
