Please Note: The DMTF group formerly known as the Scalable Platforms Management Forum (SPMF) has been renamed the Redfish Forum.
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.
SNIA's Storage Developer Conference (SDC) will take place September 24-27 in Santa Clara, CA, and DMTF members are invited to submit a proposal to speak at SDC 2018.
Speaking at SDC offers a unique opportunity to gain exposure for the work you are doing. Share your knowledge and experience by submitting a proposal for consideration. The deadline to submit a proposal is May 10th.
The Distributed Management Task Force (DMTF), NVM Express, Inc. and Storage Networking Industry Association (SNIA) have formed a new three-way alliance to coordinate standards for managing solid state drive (SSD) storage devices.
DMTF’s Redfish® standard has been adopted and published by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) as ISO/IEC 30115:2018. With an aggressive development schedule that has resulted in rapid advancement, Redfish’s publication by ISO/IEC as an International standard for Information Technology is expected to further accelerate worldwide adoption and interoperability.
Why do organizations join the DMTF, and what are the advantages? In a new on-demand webinar, DMTF shares the Benefits of Membership, including an overview of the organization and its standards efforts, along with an examination of how technology standards help the industry at large.
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.
