Please Note: The DMTF group formerly known as the Scalable Platforms Management Forum (SPMF) has been renamed the Redfish Forum.
DMTF alliance partner, SNIA, invites you to participate in its Storage Developer Conference (SDC) 2020. Taking place virtually September 22-23, 2020, SDC brings the storage developer community together to collaborate and network with peers through the sharing of ideas, industry developments and best practices.
SDC 2020 Agenda
DMTF has released Version 3.4 of the System Management BIOS (SMBIOS) Reference Specification, the premier standard for delivering management information via system firmware. Since its first release in 1995, the widely implemented SMBIOS standard has simplified the management of more than two billion client and server systems.
DMTF today announced its Redfish® Interoperability Lab, hosted at the SNIA Technology Center in Colorado Springs, Colorado. The Redfish Interoperability Lab allows Forum members to submit equipment to be made available for interoperability testing.
DMTF announces the public release of its Security Protocol and Data Model (SPDM) Specification 1.1.0, is now available for download.
Marking a major milestone for the standard, DMTF’s Redfish® turned five this month. Redfish, which has seen remarkable success in both industry adoption and implementation in five short years, has amassed the following:
Willie Nathan of Vertiv has been appointed to serve as DMTF’s new vice president of membership. Willie will play an important role in the organization as DMTF continues its commitment of providing solid value to its members.
Willie will oversee the organization’s membership initiatives while striving to grow its domestic and global presence. Please join us as we welcome Willie in his new leadership role with DMTF!
DMTF’s annual summer event – 2020 Alliance Partner Technical Symposium (APTS) – looked a little different this year. APTS 2020 was held virtually via Zoom! While we certainly missed the face-to-face interaction that APTS affords us, the virtual event was deemed a success.
Are you looking to learn more about DMTF’s Redfish®? The Redfish Forum – the group responsible for the Redfish standard – has created a new white paper, Redfish Certificate Management, designed to help implementers and clients understand the Redfish certificate data model as well as the common workflows clients might require to manage certificates.
DMTF has formed a new Tools Task Force within its Platform Management Components Intercommunication (PMCI) Working Group. The PMCI Working Group develops the Network Controller Sideband Interface (NC-SI), Management Component Transport Protocol (MCTP), Platform Level Data Model (PLDM), and Security Protocol and Data Model (SPDM) specifications that provide a comprehensive, common architecture for improved communication between management subsystem components.
DMTF’s Redfish®, Release 2020.2, 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 5 new schemas, 10 schema updates, and additional developer resources. The new release features support for StorageDevice Message Registry, which provides storage-specific events or status changes.
