Redfish is an open industry standard specification, API and schema developed by DMTF (SPMF) group that specifies RESTful interface and utilizes JSON and OData. Redfish has been designed to deliver simple and secure management for converged, hybrid IT and the Software Defined Data Center (SDDC).

Promoters of this standard are: Broadcom, Dell, Emerson, Hewlett-Packard, Intel, Lenovo, Microsoft, Supermicro, and VMware.
