The Systems Management Architecture for Server Hardware (SMASH) standard is a suite of specifications that deliver architectural semantics, industry standard protocols and profiles to unify the management of the data center. The SMASH Server Management (SM) Command Line Protocol (CLP) specification enables simple and intuitive management of heterogeneous servers in the data center. SMASH takes full advantage of the Web Services for Management (WS-Management) specification - delivering standards-based Web services management for server environments. Both provide server management independent of machine state, operating system state, server system topology or access method, facilitating local and remote management of server hardware.

SMASH Initiative may also support protocol (e.g. WS-Management) and profiles (e.g. Base Server Profile, Service Processor Profile, Boot Control Profile, etc...).
