Abstract

Data centers are at the core of modern software technology and play a crucial role in defining the capabilities and overall success of an organization. The massive growth in size and scale of data and computing leads to an enormous growth in the size and complexity of clusters and data centers. Therefore, traditional management methods and standards like Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI) are not sufficient to manage these modern scalable data centers anymore. Redfish is a new standard for managing hardware in modern data centers and is anticipated to meet the expectations of end users to provide simple, effective, and secure management of scalable platform hardware. It is essential to validate Redfish’s capability regarding the performance, scalability and security aspects as defined in the Redfish Specification. To validate Redfish services, we have designed a Redfish Conformance Test Tool (RCTT) which tests compliance and re-instates faith on the viability of Redfish at meeting customer expectations.
