DMTF Redfish might be taking over the server market, and IPMI may’ve frozen their spec, but it appears DMTF DASH isn’t dead yet, they just updated their tests, and made the latest version (dated 2018?) available, and it looks like devices from AMD, Lenovo, and Dell are on the list:
This week at Intel Developer Forum (IDF), AMI showcased their MegaRAC manageability solutions. MegaRAC is AMI’s Remote Management Firmware family of products for both in-band and out-of-band management, including supporting IPMI, Intel AMT, AMD systems with DMTF DASH. Amongst the new features of MegaRAC SP-X are DMTF Redfish support, and Intel(R) Innovation Engine support.
I don’t know much about Intel’s new “Innovation Engine” is yet, so I’ll excerpt one paragraph from the AMI press release:
“The Innovation Engine is a small, embedded, Intel-architecture processor and I/O subsystem built into future Intel data center platforms,” said Lisa Spelman, General Manager of Data Center Marketing at Intel. “Firmware such as MegaRAC PM-X running on the IE can improve or differentiate the system-builders’ platforms in a wide range of ways, including manageability, cost reduction or security.”
Maybe this means that AMI is the second vendor to support Redfish, after HP?
