What is the NVMe-MI™ Specification?

The NVMe® Management Interface (NVMe-MI™) specification was created to define a command set and architecture for managing NVMe storage, making it possible to discover, monitor, configure, and update NVMe devices in multiple operating environments. NVMe-MI technology provides an industry standard for management of NVMe devices in-band (through an operating system) and out-of-band (usually through a BMC, or baseboard management controller).

The NVMe-MI 1.2 specification, released in June 2021, evolved to meet the growing management needs of the NVMe ecosystem. For more details on the new anchor features, please see NVMe® Management Interface (NVMe-MI™) 1.2 Specification: What’s New? – NVM Express.
