The program has been successful in providing an environment that manages and coordinates vendors' development efforts to deliver SMI-S compliant products to market. Since April, 2004, SMI-Lab has enabled numerous companies to pass the SMI-S CTP tests to get hundreds of products certified.

Plugfest meeting photo


SMI plugfests are held several times a year, usually at the SNIA US Technology Center in Colorado Springs, to test interoperability across SMI-S implementations, validate CTP test updates, and create proof-of-concept implementations of proposals for inclusion in the SMI-S standard. In addition, plugfests provide an opportunity to meet with peer developers and folks supporting commonly used CIMOMs.  View SMI-Lab Plugfest Schedule.
