REDFISH Redfish® API

DMTF Redfish LogoDMTF’s Redfish® is a standard API designed to deliver simple and secure management for converged, hybrid IT and the Software Defined Data Center (SDDC). Both human readable and machine capable, Redfish leverages common Internet and web services standards to expose information directly to the modern tool chain.

Technical work on the Redfish standard takes place in the DMTF's Redfish Forum (formerly known as the Scalable Platforms Management Forum, or SPMF).

Developers: Please Visit the Redfish Developer Hub!

The DMTF’s Redfish Developer Hub is a one-stop, in-depth technical resource – by developers, for developers – designed to provide all the files, tools, community support, tutorials and other advanced education you may need to help you use Redfish.

Redfish Extensions

DMTF welcomes extensions to Redfish and works with its Alliance Partners and OEMs to leverage and expand the standard. For example, the Storage Networking Industry Association (SNIA) is developing Swordfish, which builds upon Redfish’s local storage management capabilities to address enterprise storage services.

The following organizations are improving Redfish with their domain expertise (with models, white papers and feedback):
