Please Note: The DMTF group formerly known as the Scalable Platforms Management Forum (SPMF) has been renamed the Redfish Forum.
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.
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.
