SSI Forum unveils Micro Module Server Specification Version 1.0

Features server board form factor and system interfaces

By CBR Staff Writer

Server System Infrastructure Forum (SSI), a server industry group that drives server form factor standards, has unveiled the Micro Module Server Specification, Version 1.0.

The new Micro Module Server Specification provides a server board form factor and system interfaces specifically designed for the micro server segment.

The forum said that this standard, a collaborative effort between SSI Forum’s Server Working Group (SWG), Quanta, TYAN, and Intel, will enable system architectures to reduce product costs and increase product and data centre efficiencies.

The new micro server segment is designed for web services, including entry dedicated hosting and fixed function web servers such as static web page serving.

SSI Forum chairman Jim Ryan said the availability of this new specification is an exciting development and a true reflection of the innovation set forth by members of SSI Forum.

"This is unlike anything we have ever done as an organisation, but it is our intention to continue expanding the scope of the SWG to ensure that we deliver best-in-class value to the server industry," Ryan said.
