Abstract: 

Data centers are under pressure. Competing needs for asset homogenization, supporting specialized workloads and delivering predictable performance lead to deployment tradeoffs that drive down data center utilization and drive up costs. Businesses need to continue to innovate, but budgets rarely reflect as such. A "one Cloud fits all" is expensive or simply does not work, but the same flexibility of the Cloud is essential as workloads repatriate to containers on bare metal. These factors are driving organizations towards adopting composable infrastructure to drive more value and flexibility. In this session, we describe an existing solution whose architecture and approach reflects the challenges of dis-aggregation. This presentation includes the design decisions made while looking at these problems and the resulting architecture that delivers on the promise of composable infrastructure.

  • In this session, we describe an existing solution whose architecture and approach reflects the challenges of dis-aggregation.
  • Understand composable infrastructure and why it is especially relevant today
  • Understand the practical challenges to consider in design and deployment
