This paper describes the mechanical design, the readout chain, the production, testing and the installation of the Silicon Microstrip Tracker of the D0 experiment at the Fermilab Tevatron collider. In addition, we describe the performance and operational experience of the detector during the experiment data collection between 2001 and 2010.
