DMTF Adds Board Members

PORTLAND, Ore. -- The Distributed Management Task Force, Inc. (DMTF), the industry organization leading the development, adoption and promotion of interoperable management standards and initiatives, today announced the addition of three new companies to its board of directors. Oracle, VMware and CA step up to the board level – joining industry heavyweights AMD, Broadcom, Dell, EMC, Fujitsu, HP, Hitachi, Ltd., IBM, Intel Corporation, Microsoft Corporation, Novell, Sun Microsystems, and Symantec Corporation – to help drive the overall direction, strategy and activity of DMTF.

These three new board members join DMTF to collaborate with other industry-leading companies on systems management-specification development, validation, promotion and industry-wide adoption. Together the board of directors will collaborate to set cross-industry priorities, promote interoperability for enterprise and Internet environments, foster alliance partnerships, and lead the organization’s committee work.

“The DMTF specifications and its key principles of interoperability and portability are an important enabler to the evolution of the virtualization market,” said Winston Bumpus, director of standards architecture for VMware. “As a new DMTF board member, VMware looks forward to bringing an important perspective to the future direction of the organization."
