Abstract: 

We are on the precipice of a new paradigm in the data center. Booming growth in both compute and storage have effectively changed how best to tie the traditional SW and HW layers together for scale, as well as which new SW and HW layers to use. The industry has answered the call with strategic changes in everything from storage device functionality, form factors and capacity points, to new compute platforms and the HW used to perform that compute. New offerings of open source HW and SW, tied together with new more functional and powerful networks help finish this new puzzle. In this presentation, we will discuss the interactions and benefits of these changes to the data center components, and how it allows for a new, more efficient datacenter, built around composable infrastructure with a rethinking of the compute aspect as food for thought.
