Inside HPC - “DMTF’s Redfish is a standard API designed to deliver simple and secure management for converged, hybrid IT and the Software Defined Data Center (SDDC). An open industry standard specification and schema, Redfish specifies a RESTful interface and utilizes defined JSON payloads – usable by existing client applications and browser-based GUI.”
In this video from the Dell EMC HPC Community meeting, Alan Sill from Texas Tech University describes how DMTF and the Redfish project will ease system administration for HPC clusters.
