The DMTF, NVM Express, Inc. and SNIA have formed a new three-way alliance to coordinate standards for managing SSD storage devices. […] In addition to SNIA’s Swordfish and DMTF’s Redfish, the alliance’s collaborative work will include the following standards:
* NVM Express™(NVMe™) is the register interface and command set for PCI Express attached storage with industry standard software available for numerous operating systems. The NVM Express™Management Interface (NVMe-MI™) is the command set and architecture for management of NVM Express storage (e.g., discovering, monitoring, and updating NVMe devices using a BMC).
* DMTF’s Management Component Transport Protocol (MCTP) is a protocol and Platform Level Data Model (PLDM) is a low-level data model defined by the DMTF Platform Management Components Intercommunications (PMCI) Working Group (https://www.dmtf.org/standards/pmci) . MCTP is designed to support communications between different intelligent hardware components that make up a platform management subsystem that provides monitoring and control functions inside a managed system.
