A Vision for Open Hypermedia Systems Nürnberg and Leggett

4.1.1 SIM
A SIM (Server Information Manager) collects server name and location information from servers and distributes it to clients. As described in Section 3.2.4, there are many ways in which this can be accomplished. The method that the HOSS OHS uses was described above. The previous section also provided the name for this entity, since servers of server information in HOSS are also called SIM's. While the details of this entity should be addressed by the group, we only note that such an entity should exist in any OHS reference architecture.
