SML :: Could Make Managing Your Datacenter Easier

I am glad this is moving forward, the idea of a cross vendor specification for identifying a datacenter resource is something that has been missing for some time. The new SML Specification will take things to a new level. Right now this is a difficult thing to automate as determining all the responsibilities of a device is difficult. There are technologies like EMC’s SMARTS products (among others) that do a lot of work to determine what devices are doing on the network. There are other products that use a manual entry system to learn what different devices on the network do.
