Data Center Markup Language (DCML)

Definition - What does Data Center Markup Language (DCML) mean?

Data Center Markup Language (DCML) is an XML-based standard data format and model for specifying data center environments such as dependencies between data center components as well as policies to govern those environments. DCML essentially provides a common description for the data center including hardware, software programs and information.

DCML is designed to bind data center system management aspects and tools to provide an expanded environment vision.

Techopedia explains Data Center Markup Language (DCML)

DCML was created to establish automatic system management perspectives within data centers operating in environments with computing resource pools, eliminating the need for manual system management after overall environment change implementation.

DCML is a structured data format that describes, constructs, replicates, recovers and communicates the data center environment parameters required for data center environment automation. DCML also provides a broad view into a system’s environmental state and provides system development and management best practices.
