AMI® FabricS™ Ethernet Fabric and Server SAN Management
AMI® FabricS™ Ethernet Fabric and Server SAN Management Firmware is a powerful firmware/software solution combining the complete functionality to support Server SAN, including Ethernet Fabric management and NVMe drive management, with that of a baseboard management controller (BMC).
The firmware component of AMI FabricS resides on the preexisting onboard BMC, along with extensions that enable completely secure, out-of-band (OOB) NVMe storage manageability, available right out of the box. Its software component, called Ethernet Storage Manager (ESM), runs on the server chipset.
AMI FabricS supports Intel® x86 and AMD platforms storage server architectures.
In addition to the high degree of out-of-band NVMe storage management for discovering storage pools, creating namespaces, attaching/detaching NVMe storage volumes to remote compute nodes, a key aspect of AMI FabricS is its inclusion of NVMe Management Interface (NVMe-MI) support to enable drive inventory and telemetry data support on the BMC OOB interface.
