DMTF releases specification for simplifying cloud infrastructure management

The Distributed Management Task Force (DMTF) has announced the release of its new Cloud Infrastructure Management Interface (CIMI) specification.

The new specification standardizes interactions between cloud environments to achieve interoperable cloud infrastructure management between service providers and their consumers and developers, enabling users to manage their cloud infrastructure use easily and without complexity.

As companies have adopted cloud computing, vendors have embraced the need to provide interoperability between enterprise computing and cloud services. DMTF developed CIMI as a self-service interface for infrastructure clouds, allowing users to dynamically provision, configure and administer their cloud usage with a high-level interface that greatly simplifies cloud systems management.

“The CIMI standard is a critical piece for cloud infrastructure management because it alleviates complexity while improving flexibility, portability and security,” said Winston Bumpus, chairman of the Board, DMTF. “With the release of the CIMI v1.0 specification, DMTF offers a well-rounded, industry-wide solution for simplifying cloud infrastructure management.”
