With applications morphing daily and demanding more and more resources, the aging compute infrastructure of yesterday is nearing its useful life. The data center of the future is emerging.
Renowned networking research analyst Zeus Kerravala recently penned an article on the future of data center technologies that provide “fluid, agile facilities capable of meeting the demands of a digital enterprise.” This is exactly why the composable approach to infrastructure is here to stay. It’s the optimal method to generating the speed and efficiency in data centers that are ultimately supporting today’s generation of everyone.
Just imagine a scenario in which IT has access to a solution that turns storage, compute and networking into fluid pools of resources—all stored within a single chassis. This is the next generation. This is composable infrastructure. Leveraging its built-in management software, composable architecture allows users to configure hardware quickly and automatically, providing just the right amount of resources needed to run an application efficiently.
But more importantly, composable infrastructure is a born silo-buster that serves as the bridge between developers and operations. It accommodates a reality in which traditional and leading-edge IT can work side-by-side with coding teams to keep up with a rapidly changing digital economy. Less downtime and easy scalability are vital in today’s business. Composable infrastructure can handle the needs of today’s physical, virtual and container-based workloads—simultaneously.
Yet, not all composable solutions are optimal in every situation, but by choosing the right solution you’ll see cost savings and efficiency from the very get go. To illustrate what a good composable infrastructure solution might look like, we created the following downloadable infographic that presents you with 5 top qualities to look for when assessing your options. The infographic also includes a link to a white paper providing more detailed information and insight should you like to dig even deeper.
