PRESS RELEASE

MS-91C1 compute blade now SSI certified

MSI has qualified for official entry to the SSI Integrators’ List (IL) after the company successfully tested its MS-91C1 compute blade, and passed SSI-Compliance and Interoperability (C&I) tests. The SSI list is administered by the Server System Infrastructure Forum (SSI), an industry group that drives server form factor standards. The C&I tests were conducted at The University of New Hampshire's InterOperability Laboratory (UNH-IOL), with support from the SSI Forum’s C&I lab. By meeting SSI standards, the MS-91C1 is now able to support the growth of the SSI ecosystem.

The SSI Integrators’ list programme offers SSI Forum members the opportunity to participate in a series of blade and switch specification tests, verifying that products have met all of the required criteria for SSI-C&I. To gain access to the SSI Integrators’ List and to display the SSI-compliant logo, MSI completed tests in signal quality, base management, and basic interoperability.

The MS-91C1 is a compute blade node that can support up to two Intel six-core 95W Xeon processors and 12 DDR3 1333MHz registered and unbuffered memory modules. As a high-speed server, the MS-91C1 can be combined with any SSI-compliant blade system for powerful storage in a single blade unit.
