Composable Infrastructure is a comprehensive, rack-scale compute environment that further improves efficiency, agility and cost over existing solutions such as Converged Infrastructure (CI) and Hyperconverged Infrastructure (HCI). It borrows from these Integrated Infrastructure technologies at a potentially greater scale, leveraging increased software control and automation. Composable Infrastructures (CPIs) disaggregate and pool physical resources, allocating them at run time for specific compute jobs, then return them to the pool. They provide a stateless compute environment creating bare-metal compute instances that support applications running on operating systems, VMs or containers.
This Evaluator Group Technical Insight report will explain what “composable” means, where this technology came from and what to expect as it matures. It should be noted that this is a look at an early stage technology and as such, available products, approaches and even defining characteristics are somewhat dynamic.
