Please Note: The DMTF group formerly known as the Scalable Platforms Management Forum (SPMF) has been renamed the Redfish Forum.
Each year, I have the privilege of reviewing the many accomplishments of the DMTF for the past twelve months. I’m happy to share the top milestones for 2017 – another tremendous year for the organization!

A new installment of the DMTF’s popular “Redfish® School” YouTube series is now available, with the latest video addressing composability in Redfish. A standard API designed to meet customer demands for simple and secure management in modern Software Defined Data Center (SDDC) environments, support for composable infrastructures was added in Redfish version 2017.1.
Registration is now open for the 13th International Conference on Network and Service Management (CNSM) taking place November 26th through November 30th in Tokyo, Japan at WASEDA University.
Continuing its commitment to industry outreach and education, DMTF recently presented at the Open Compute Project (OCP) Engineering Workshops in Dallas, Texas. The OCP Engineering Workshops are in-person technical sessions corresponding to the OCP’s nine projects.
The DMTF released a new update to Redfish® today, continuing the standard’s aggressive development to cover customer use cases and technology in converged IT infrastructure management. Version 2017.2 of the Redfish Schema and version 1.3.0 of the Redfish Specification are now available for public download.
DMTF and The Green Grid, long-standing alliance partners, are working together to address power and cooling in the data center. This work includes data center infrastructure management (DCIM) power and cooling schemas, which will be part of the DMTF’s Redfish®. In addition, The Green Grid is planning to reference established DMTF management technologies in its ongoing work on DCIM platforms.
