What is the NVMe-MI specification?

NVM Express Management Interface

The NVMe-MI specification defines a command set and architecture for managing NVMe storage. NVMe-MI technology provides an industry standard for the management of NVMe devices in-band (through an operating system) and out-of-band (usually through a BMC, or baseboard management controller). Anchor features include standardized NVMe enclosure management, the ability to access NVMe-MI technology functionality in-band and new management features for multiple NVMe subsystem solid-state drive (SSD) deployments.
