Just a little follow-up about this Redfish API, given it's been a while since this related post:

It does seem we're getting closer to having something to try on our X10 Generation SYS-5028D-TN4T/X10SDV-TLN4F systems:
Redfish is intended to bring the baseboard management controller (BMC) interface up to speed with the hardware deployment realizations in the datacenter. This means the ability to model and represent dense compute node distribution (hyperscale) across multiple chassis in a multitenant world through a single interface.
Among the founding principles of Redfish there is interoperability between server platforms, which means that a data center administrator will be able to speak a single language, regardless of the individual technologies used, and therefore can be more productive.
And finally, an excerpt from redfish.dmtf.org:
Designed to meet the expectations of end users for simple, modern and secure management of scalable platform hardware, the DMTF's Redfish is an open industry standard specification and schema that specifies a RESTful interface and utilizes JSON and OData to help customers integrate solutions within their existing tool chains.

Supermicro Server Management (Redfish API)
Redfish is an open industry standard specification and schema developed by DMTF (SPMF) group that specifies RESTful interface and utilizes JSON and OData. Supermicro is a promoter of this standard as part of its efforts to meet the systems management requirements for hyper-scale Datacenters solutions.
Supermicro will support Redfish RESTful APIs on its X10 Generation and future server product line. All the BMC firmware designated with 3.xx will support this technology.
