The Distributed Management Task Force (DMTF), the organization bringing the IT industry together to collaborate on systems management standards development, validation, promotion and adoption, today announced it has established a Chapter in China to provide support for its growing international efforts and to drive adoption of DMTF standards in the Chinese marketplace, including cloud management.
DMTF has made recent efforts to promote IT management standards in China by forming partnerships with the China Communications Standards Association (CCSA) and the China Electronics Standardization Institute (CESI), the leading organizations involved in China’s IT standardization work. The development of the China Chapter is another step forward in fostering DMTF’s global standards.
“DMTF is proud to announce the formation of the China Chapter to promote our IT management standards in China,” said Jeff Wheeler, VP of Regional Chapters, DMTF. “As China continues to be a major hub for cloud computing, it is important that we expand our presence in this region and align our future strategies and activities.”
DMTF’s China Chapter will help facilitate the active participation among Chinese companies in open standards addressing cloud computing, virtualization and advanced datacenter technologies. The Chapter will be responsible for driving broad industry adoption of DMTF standards and specifications throughout the business community in China, including the recently released Cloud Infrastructure Management Interface (CIMI v1.0) Specification, a self-service interface for cloud infrastructure management. The Chapter will also work to educate the Chinese vendor community by providing localized DMTF documents, resources and guidelines to assist in regional adoption and inclusion of DMTF standards in local products and services. The China Chapter will also provide input on new and existing DMTF standards, based on known requirements from China-based users and vendors.
“Chinese companies are continuing to influence the IT management sector, particularly as cloud computing gains international industry momentum,” said Zhou Ping, Chair, DMTF China Chapter. “The DMTF China Chapter will drive collaboration among these companies and will support local promotion and adoption of current and future DMTF standards with an emphasis on cloud management.”
China Chapter members currently include CATR, CESI, China Mobile, HP, Huawei, IBM, Fujitsu, Lenovo, Microsoft, Oracle, VMware and ZTE. For more information on DMTF’s cloud work, visit www.dmtf.org/standards/cloud.
