AMI Composer

AMI® Composer Hyperscale Management Ecosystem


AMI® Composer™ from American Megatrends is a robust hyperscale node, rack and POD management ecosystem for both traditional and telco cloud infrastructure. It is built around a central framework that delivers core manageability features with simplified physical configurations of compute, network and storage-level resources. Various extensions to the AMI Composer framework add individual manageability capabilities including server, POD and telco cloud system management, thanks to its compliance with key management specifications like DMTF Redfish® and Intel® Rack Scale Design.

AMI Composer allows users to browse, assign, compose and manage physical resources at the rack, chassis, and system level through an intuitive and powerful web-based user interface. Administrators can compose physical resources to create a logical node and provision the logical node with the operating system and software required. This provides the advantage of demand-driven dynamic scaling to optimize datacenter resource utilization, reducing CAPEX and boosting operational efficiency.

The Four Manageability Extensions of AMI Composer:

AMI Composer System Manager: This extension works with any device that has AMI Remote BIOS and does not require an onboard Baseboard Management Controller (BMC)

AMI Composer Server Manager: This extension brings Redfish® based server management to any Redfish® compliant BMC, and adds BIOS and BMC configuration and update support not native to Redfish®

AMI Composer POD Manager: This extension adds Intel® RSD-based POD management for composable disaggregated infrastructure (CDI) system management

AMI Composer Telco Cloud Manager: Arriving in late 2019, this extension delivers MANO-based telco cloud management, enabling service providers to provision Open Source MANO (OSM), provision and deploy network services and more
