DMTF’s Redfish® API is an open industry standard specification and schema that helps enable simple and secure management of modern scalable platform hardware. By specifying a RESTful interface and utilizing JSON and OData, Redfish helps customers integrate solutions within their existing tool chains. An aggressive development schedule is quickly advancing Redfish toward its goal of addressing all the components in the data center with a consistent API.
The DMTF’s Redfish Developer Hub is a one-stop, in-depth technical resource – by developers, for developers – designed to provide all the files, tools, community support, tutorials and other advanced education you may need to help you use Redfish.
Not a developer and looking for more general information? Learn more about the DMTF's Redfish API and find out how to join the DMTF Forum responsible for Redfish.
All of the developer-focused Redfish technical files and resources, mockups and education/community information are included on these pages. The DMTF continues to add additional support to this central developer hub on a regular basis, so be sure to check back frequently!
