Distributed Management Task Force (DMTF), the organization that facilitates
IT industry to collaborate on systems management standards development,
announced the Virtualization Management Initiative (VMAN). The VMAN Initiative
delivers broadly supported interoperability and portability standards to virtual
computing environments. IT managers can deploy pre-installed, pre-configured
solutions across heterogeneous computing networks and manage those applications
through their entire lifecycle. Alongside, the Open Virtualization Format (OVF)
standard has also been released. OVF simplifies interoperability, security and
virtual machine lifecycle management by describing an open, secure, portable and
extensible format for the packaging and distribution of one or more virtual
appliances. This enables software developers to ship pre-configured,
ready-to-deploy standard solutions, allowing end-users to distribute
applications into their environments with minimal effort. DMTF standards are
free and open to the industry.
