Last week the DMTF participated in ETSI’s Industry Specification Group for Network Functions Virtualization (ETSI NFV) ground-breaking workshop on aligning cloud-centric and network-centric initiatives to ensure successful realization of NFV through automation. The workshop, hosted by CableLabs in Louisville, Colorado, brought together leading Standards Development Organizations (SDOs) and Open Source communities in an ‘NFV Village.’
The Open Software Defined Data Center (OSDDC) Incubator recently released the white paper, “Software Defined Data Center Definition 1.0,” reviewing industry standards for the SDDC. The paper outlines use cases, definitions, and identifies existing standards gaps, as well as possible architectures for the various implementations of Software Defined Data Center (SDDC).
We are thrilled to welcome Mark Nicolas to his role within the DMTF. Mark became involved with the DMTF through the Scalable Platforms Management Forum and then continued as the Board of Directors representative from Emerson Network Power in April 2015.
