Leading organizations partner to drive adoption of cloud standards
PORTLAND, Ore., July 30 — The Distributed Management Task Force (DMTF), the organization bringing the IT industry together to collaborate on systems management standards development, validation, promotion and adoption, and the China Electronics Standardization Institute (CESI) today announced they have formed a partnership to drive adoption of DMTF cloud management standards in China, an important step on the path towards enabling worldwide interoperable IT management.
Both DMTF and CESI are committed to promoting a standards-based approach to cloud management. The groups plan to share documents and resources to help ensure consistent application of cloud standards in the industry. DMTF will work to make its standards meet requirements outlined by CESI, while CESI will encourage Chinese companies, universities and non-profit organizations to adopt DMTF standards such as the Cloud Infrastructure Management Interface (CIMI), the Open Virtualization Format (OVF) and future DMTF standards for cloud auditing and software license management. This collaboration will reinforce the importance of industry standards and help CESI to more efficiently develop Chinese national standards.
"Standards adoption will be critical to facilitating a smooth transition to cloud-based management models across the globe," said Mark Carlson, DMTF VP of Alliances. "DMTF welcomes the opportunity to partner with CESI to drive adoption of our standards in China, where many companies are actively working on new cloud technologies."
"DMTF has a successful track record of developing management standards that achieve international adoption," said Jun Liu, Deputy Director, CESI. "CESI is pleased to be working with DMTF to help encourage widespread implementation of cloud standards in China."
DMTF enables more effective management of millions of IT systems worldwide by bringing the IT industry together to collaborate on the development, validation and promotion of systems management standards. The group spans the industry with 160 member companies and organizations, and more than 4,000 active participants crossing 43 countries. The DMTF board of directors is led by 17 innovative, industry-leading technology companies. They include Advanced Micro Devices (AMD); Broadcom Corporation; CA Technologies.; Cisco; Citrix Systems, Inc.; EMC; Fujitsu; HP; Huawei; IBM; Intel Corporation; Microsoft Corporation; NetApp; Oracle; Red Hat; SunGard Availability Services and VMware, Inc. With this deep and broad reach, DMTF creates standards that enable interoperable IT management. DMTF management standards are critical to enabling management interoperability among multi-vendor systems, tools and solutions within the enterprise. Information about DMTF technologies and activities can be found at http://www.dmtf.org.
CESI was founded in 1963 as a professional institute for standardization in the field of electronics and IT under the Chinese Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT). CESI operates under Chinese government policies and its own rules. The core mission of CESI is standardization in the field of electronics and information technology. It executes this mission by developing and publicizing standards, testing, measurement and certification in these fields. CESI provides professional support for the government's strategic evaluation and industrial management through the provision of technical services.
