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.

AMI FabricS is based on the proven, highly stable and industry-leading AMI Core Technology. AMI FabricS firmware provides a high level of modularity, with the ability to easily configure the complete firmware / software stack by selecting and deselecting features that are available in package form.
