Abstract: 

The variety of architectures, use-cases and workloads to be managed by Data Center appliances is increasing. It is driving a need for storage and compute disaggregation, while at the same time forcing IT pros to simplify Data Center management and move to hyperconverged infrastructure. However the HCI approach results in siloing of storage that leads to capacity waste and scalability issue. This paper describes how Kalray’s fully programmable Smart Storage adapter leverages NVMe-oF technology to offload servers from heavy storage disaggregation task, and pave the way toward a fully Composable Infrastructure.
