Please Note: The DMTF group formerly known as the Scalable Platforms Management Forum (SPMF) has been renamed the Redfish Forum.
As part of the organization’s ongoing commitment to maximizing the user experience on its website, DMTF recently revamped the Education area to offer visitors improved navigation and faster access to new materials. Formerly called the Learning Center, DMTF’s new Education section highlights the latest educational information and featured resources with intuitive design and content improvements.
DMTF recently participated in the Open Compute Project (OCP) U.S. Summit, March 20-21, which hosted more than 3,000 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 the DMTF’s other standards.
For those who were unable to attend the conference, two new Redfish presentations are now available for viewing on YouTube:
Taking place November 5-9, 2018 in Rome, Italy, the 14th International Conference on Network and Service Management (CNSM) is a selective single-track conference covering all aspects of the management of networks and services, pervasive systems, enterprises, and cloud computing environments. The core track is accompanied by a series of workshops and poster sessions. CNSM welcomes authors to submit original contributions in the network and service management research area.
The DMTF has released its new Platform Level Data Model (PLDM) for Redfish® Device Enablement Specification as a Work in Progress, inviting public review and comment. This standard enables a management controller to present Redfish-conformant management of I/O adapters in a server, without the need for code specific to each adapter family/vendor/model.
Continuing its commitment to industry outreach and education, DMTF will participate in the Open Compute Project (OCP) U.S. Summit, March 20-21, as an exhibitor and with numerous presentations representing the Redfish® standard.

DMTF’s aggressive development of Redfish® continues, with Version 2017.3 now available. The goal of Redfish is to publish a standard API to meet customer demands for simple and secure management in modern Software Defined Data Center (SDDC) environments, and the latest release includes updates to both the Specification and the Schemas.
