Please Note: The DMTF group formerly known as the Scalable Platforms Management Forum (SPMF) has been renamed the Redfish Forum.
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.
The latest release of the Common Information Model (CIM) Schema, version 2.50 is now available. This news marks an impressive DMTF milestone - fifty updates to the Common Information Model (CIM) since the launch of 2.0.
This widely-used standard provides a common definition of management information for systems, networks, applications and services. The fifty releases are evidence of DMTF’s ongoing commitment to keeping CIM up-to-date to address the latest industry needs.
DMTF and Broadband Forum (BBF) have formed an alliance to help ensure the two organizations’ standards are coordinated and aligned in order to enable broadband operators and users to deploy cloud services and applications.
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!
