OSDDC Open Software Defined Data Center Incubator


  • Winston Bumpus, VMware Inc.

Group Description

While there are many management standards for physical, virtual and cloud-based systems, there is a need for standard architectures and definitions to describe the Software Defined Data Center.

The DMTF’s Open Software Defined Data Center (OSDDC) Incubator is developing use cases, reference architectures and requirements based on real world customer requirements. From these inputs, the incubator is developing white papers and a set of recommendations for industry standardization. 

Get Involved

DMTF members are encouraged to contribute and access the work of the OSDDC Incubator via its private, members-only workspace. Non-members, learn more and join the DMTF to participate.
