Modeling Systems Management Data the Redfish Way

Presented by

SPMF Co-Chair Jeff Autor

About this talk

The DMTF’s Redfish Specification, released in August 2015, takes a modern approach to systems management, using RESTful principles and focused on developer usability. Redfish’s data model differs from previous efforts by prioritizing end-user usability and scalability to enable management at the data center level. One key to the popularity of Redfish is the human-readable nature of the JSON resource payloads, which allow IT professionals and Dev/Ops alike to incorporate Redfish data into their management solutions. This presentation will describe the guiding principles used to define the standard Redfish schemas, and how interested parties can extend the Redfish model to encompass their own areas of expertise.
