Please Note: The DMTF group formerly known as the Scalable Platforms Management Forum (SPMF) has been renamed the Redfish Forum.
DMTF has released the initial version of its Platform Level Data Model (PLDM) for Redfish® Device Enablement Specification (RDE) specification. The RDE specification describes the operation and format of request messages (also referred to as commands) and response messages, designed to be delivered using PLDM messaging.
Every December, we take the opportunity to pause and reflect on the last twelve months. As another highly productive year comes to a close, I’m proud to highlight the significant accomplishments the organization achieved in 2019. We appreciate the hard work of our members who have helped the organization reach the following milestones.
DMTF continued to provide a steady cadence of updates to the Common Information Model (CIM):
Jeff Hilland, DMTF president, will present the latest Redfish® developments at an upcoming Open Fabrics Alliance Working Group meeting. The core mission of the Open Fabrics Alliance (OFA) is to accelerate the development and adoption of advanced fabrics. Recognizing that fabric management is a core element of any fabric architecture, the two groups will also explore the possibility of future engagement focused on fabric management.
DMTF’s Redfish®, Release 2019.3, is now available for public download. Designed to deliver simple and secure management for hybrid IT and the Software Defined Data Center (SDDC), the latest release of the Redfish standard includes 14 schema updates and additional developer resources.
DMTF will be at SC19, November 18-21, as an exhibitor. If you’ll be at the event, come visit with DMTF’s Redfish Forum, the developers of Redfish, in booth #2247 at the Colorado Convention Center in downtown Denver.
Executives and Forum representatives will be on hand to speak with attendees about the standard and how Redfish delivers simple and secure management for converged, hybrid IT and the Software Defined Data Center (SDDC).
DMTF and MIPI Alliance have agreed to collaborate on DMTF’s Security Protocol and Data Model (SPDM) standards. MIPI will evaluate and provide feedback on SPDM standards and use cases applicable to devices, which potentially could support MIPI security specifications.
Each year, the DMTF Star Awards program recognizes members who have demonstrated great value to the organization through the dedication of their time and efforts to advance DMTF standards and initiatives.
At The Linux Foundation Open Source Summit Europe (OSSEU), October 28-30, 2019, in Lyon, France, Jeff Autor, DMTF’s Redfish® Forum Co-Chair, will facilitate a workshop on Redfish. If you’ll be attending the event, join us on Thursday, October 31, from 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m., for this deep dive session along with live demos that put you in direct contact with Redfish technical experts.
Please join us for LISA19 on October 28–30, 2019, at the Portland Marriott Downtown Waterfront in Portland, OR. Organized by the USENIX Association, LISA is the premier conference for operations professionals to share real-world knowledge about designing, building, securing, and maintaining the critical systems of our interconnected world.
If you’ll be attending the event, come visit with executives and representatives of DMTF’s Redfish Forum, the developers of Redfish, in exhibit #11.
DMTF has released Version 3.3 of the System Management BIOS (SMBIOS) Reference Specification, the premier standard for delivering management information via system firmware.
