We build Server System Infrastructure (SSI) to define commonly used server components. The SSI community develops specifications that standardize the critical server elements as well as interfaces between the elements such as boards, chassis and power supplies. This helps in developing common server hardware which in turn simplifies building of server solutions. The specifications include the standards for all the building blocks of a server system and have all the details of the computer modules, system management, mezzanine cards, interconnections and more. The individual details specify required, recommended, and optional physical and electrical characteristics of:

  • Power supplies
  • Electronic bays (Chassis)
  • Chassis
  • Micro servers
  • Power control and management
  • Rack mount server chassis
  • Redundant power supplies
