Dell, HP, Intel and Emerson partner to develop new industry standard: Redfish

Companies will develop new industry standard to increase system administrator productivity

Dell, HP, Intel and Emerson are set to develop a new industry standard to increase the productivity of system administrators through improved datacentre management, analysis and security.

The new specification, Redfish, is still under development and will be one of the most comprehensive since the Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI) was first launched in 1998, according to a statement.

Redfish uses a modern network interface style, allowing access to data using even simple, script-based programming methods.

It will be designed to improve scalability and expand data access and analysis, help lower costs, and further enable feature-rich remote management while ensuring a secure solution that protects investment.

According to a company statement, the group collaborating on Redfish development is focused on ensuring the specification enhances interoperability across multiple server environments and significantly simplifies management, allowing administrators to speak one language and be more productive.

It will also enable access to massive amounts of information and the ability to translate the data into actionable insights for system monitoring and management.

The partner companies are working with industry standards bodies and associations to accelerate the development process, in anticipation of the broad adoption of Redfish.

The specification will be submitted to the Distributed Management Task Force for consideration by the recently created Scalable Platform Management Forum, which has been chartered to publish a standard in this space.

Once the specification is approved, it will be publicly available.
