About this talk

Cloud data centers are by definition very dynamic. The need for infrastructure availability in the right place at the right time for the right use case is not as predictable, nor as static, as it has been in traditional data centers. These cloud data centers need to rapidly construct virtual pools of compute, network and storage based on the needs of particular customers or applications, then have those resources dynamically and automatically flex as needs change. To accomplish this, many in the industry espouse composable infrastructure capabilities, which rely on heterogeneous resources with specific capabilities which can be discovered, managed, and automatically provisioned and re-provisioned through data center orchestration tools. The primary benefit of composable infrastructure results in a smaller grained sets of resources that are independently scalable and can be brought together as required. In this webcast, SNIA experts will discuss: •What prompted the development of composable infrastructure? •What are the solutions? •What is composable infrastructure? •Enabling technologies (not just what’s here, but what’s needed…) •Status of composable infrastructure standards/products •What’s on the horizon – 2 years? 5 Years •What it all means After you watch the webcast, check-out the Q&A blog bit.ly/2EOcAy8
