DMTF and the Peripheral Component Interconnect Special Interest Group (PCI-SIG®) have formed an alliance to help ensure the two organizations’ standards are coordinated and address management requirements, including security object definitions, schema definition, and JSON/OData interoperability, as well as management of devices using MCTP over PCIe. The PCI-SIG is an electronics industry consortium responsible for specifying the Peripheral Component Interconnect, PCI-X, and PCI Express computer buses.
DMTF recently participated in the Open Compute Project (OCP) Global Summit, March 14-15, which hosted more than 3,400 attendees interested in the open hardware ecosystem. DMTF experts met hundreds of developers and executives at the booth, all interested in learning more about Redfish® and DMTF’s other standards.
For those who were unable to attend the conference, DMTF’s presentations are now available for viewing on YouTube:
DMTF’s newest positioning paper – “End-to-End Interoperable Management: The Standards Requirement for Modern IT” – is now available. Detailing the organization’s uniquely holistic approach to the development of Redfish®, SMBIOS, and the suite of standards from DMTF's PMCI Working Group, this paper describes how these standards provide a powerful combination for interoperability – purpose-built for today’s complex IT environments.
