Please Note: The DMTF group formerly known as the Scalable Platforms Management Forum (SPMF) has been renamed the Redfish Forum.
The goal of DMTF’s Redfish®is to provide a standard API for managing all the components in the data center – addressing both the virtual Software Defined Data Center (SDDC) and the physical Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM). Continuing its aggressive development, the organization has released newly updated work-in-progress (WIP) schemas for public review and comment in version 0.8 of the Redfish Data Center Equipment (DCIM) Model.
At the upcoming 2018 Storage Developer Conference (SDC), DMTF President Jeff Hilland will present the latest update on the ecosystem around DMTF’s Redfish®. Hosted by the Storage Networking Industry Association (SNIA), a DMTF Alliance Partner, SDC 2018 will place September 24-27, 2018, in Santa Clara, Calif.
In the latest installment of DMTF’s popular “Redfish® School” YouTube series, learn how advanced communication devices are supported in Redfish.
DMTF and The Gen-Z Consortium (Gen-Z) have formed an alliance to help ensure the two organizations’ standards are coordinated and aligned. Gen-Z is an open-systems interconnect designed to provide memory-semantic access to data and devices via direct-attached, switched or fabric topologies.
DMTF has formed a new Security Task Force within its Platform Management Components Intercommunication (PMCI) Working Group. As work in the new PMCI Security Task Force begins, early participation is encouraged to help shape the scope of these efforts on expedited deliverables.
Continuing its commitment to industry outreach and education, DMTF will participate in SC18, November 11-16, 2018, with presentations and a booth representing the Redfish® standard. SC18 is an international conference for high performance computing, networking, storage, and analysis.
DMTF’s Platform Management Components Intercommunication (PMCI) Working Group defines standards that provide a comprehensive, common architecture for improved communication between management subsystem components. These widely used standards include the Platform Level Data Model (PLDM) for Firmware Update specification.
Registration is now open for the 2018 Storage Developer Conference (SDC) – hosted by DMTF’s Alliance Partner, the Storage Networking Industry Association (SNIA) – taking place September 24-27, 2018, in Santa Clara, Calif.
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.
