Beyond Hyperconverged: Software Composable Infrastructure

Presented by

Steven Hill of 451 Research and Tom Lyon of DriveScale

About this talk

With data center requirements rapidly evolving, there’s really no “one size fits all” solution. Shifting production demands and growing application workloads call for a dynamic infrastructure that’s as flexible as software challenges, yet that continues to prove elusive due to the limitations imposed by legacy approaches to hardware. An option, hyperconvergence, has proven to be an interesting alternative that combines traditional server hardware, software defined storage and virtualization that is well suited for many generalized workloads. This modular solution for modular tasks is limited by the fact that storage and compute must be scaled in lock-step. Disk resources are still physically tied to the server systems, so adding more storage requires adding more compute and vice versa. However, big data applications with big demands need more flexibility when it comes to scaling compute and storage; and DriveScale is looking to change all that. Please join 451 Research in a frank conversation with technology visionary Tom Lyon, Chief Scientist at DriveScale as we explore a unique and flexible model for breaking the traditional boundaries between compute and storage with Software Composable Infrastructure.
