RackHD

RackHD is a technology stack created for enabling hardware management and orchestration, to provide cohesive APIs to enable automated infrastructure. In a Converged Infrastructure Platform (CIP) architecture, RackHD software provides hardware management and orchestration (M&O). It serves as an abstraction layer between other M&O layers and the underlying physical hardware. Developers can use the RackHD API to create a user interface that serves as single point of access for managing hardware services regardless of the specific hardware in place.

DMTF updates Redfish

 

New Redfish Update Adds Composability Support

Continuing its aggressive development timeline, an important update to the DMTF’s Redfish® standard is now available. The newly-released version 2017.1 of the Redfish Schema and version 1.2.0 of the Redfish Specification contain a number of additions, including support for composable infrastructures. With the ultimate goal of addressing all of the components in the data center with a consistent API, Redfish is an open industry standard that helps enable simple, modern and secure management of scalable platform hardware. DMTF continues to expand Redfish to cover customer use cases and technology, and the new Composition Service provides support for binding resources together into logical constructs. For example, disaggregated hardware – which allows for independent components, such as processors, memory, I/O controllers, and drives, to be bound together to create a composed Computer System – becomes a Computer System from an end user perspective in Redfish. Redfish composability allows clients to adjust their hardware configurations in response to their application needs, without having to touch any hardware.

Redfish and SDI

Redfish Emerges as an Interoperability Standard for SDI
The world’s data centers are working to adopt Software Defined Infrastructure (SDI) – but they are far from reaching their goals. The single biggest challenge in SDI is achieving interoperability between many kinds of hardware. Without that, a data center’s systems become a Tower of Babel, preventing IT system admins from seeing a unified view of all resources – and managing them. Built to leverage virtualized infrastructure, SDI will be easier to achieve if there are more bridges between platforms – leading to better management. This blog focuses on an emerging management standard called Redfish, which is designed to help make SDI a day-to-day reality for hybrid cloud.[…]
