Composable Infrastructure is a comprehensive, rack-scale compute architecture that uses software-defined networking techniques to connect independent servers, storage and switch chassis or modules by PCIe or Ethernet. Unlike HCI and Converged Infrastructure, it maps pooled, physical resources to create (or “compose”) bare-metal compute instances as needed, under software control. To this end, the composable architecture is designed with API-based configuration and management. Composable Infrastructure solutions also support VMs and containers.
To help those evaluating composable infrastructures, Evaluator Group has today announced the expansion of research to cover multiple composable infrastructure solutions. The initial release of research includes an Evaluation Guide and concise Product Briefs providing highlights, usage and Evaluator Group’s opinion. The composable infrastructure solutions currently covered in this new research are:
