The OpenRMC-DM Sub-Project is under the direction of the OCP Hardware Management Project Group. Please reach out to the Sub-project lead if you would like to get involved.
The OpenRMC-DM Sub-project creates designs and specifications to enable interoperable manageability for Open Compute rack managers. Deliverables from this project will include:
- Specification for the interface exposed by the rack manager to the rest of the datacenter
- Requirements on the interface between the rack manager and the on-platform components
- An open-source implementation of the rack manager controller software
The OpenRMC shall specify manageability capability of the rack management controller (RMC). The sub-project’s activities include:
- Specifying the northbound interface for the RMC
- Specifying the southbound interface requirements for the RMC
- Overseeing the OCP’s Rack-Manager source repository
Device Manager - Incubation provides a unified method to:
- Identify and Query devices for Asset Management
- Monitor early warning signs to help with Fault Isolation, and take Preventive Actions
- Manage SW and FW
This enables the entire network of connected devices (including networking, storage, and server) to be monitored and managed remotely, thus, ensuring their High Availability.
