According to Frost & Sullivan, a composable infrastructure “enables you to manage your infrastructure resources (physical, virtual, general-purpose, application-optimised, on-premises, and cloud) to deliver a better mix of performance, security, scalability, and cost for your workloads.”
So, why should your business consider switching?
1. Cloud-like speed
The speed at which businesses get new services to market often defines success. Unlike traditional solutions, which can’t create new generation of mobile and cloud-native applications quickly enough, composable infrastructure facilitates faster development times.
2. Competitive advantage
It is easier to manage IT projects and systems, which in turn frees up significant time and resources that can be redistributed for customer-facing improvements.
3. Single platform
Seeing as composable infrastructure is not limited to a single operating paradigm and can run virtual machines, bare-metal development, and containers, it effortlessly bridges the gap between previous disparate demands.
4. IT economics
Composable infrastructure can reduce operational effort with template-driven, frictionless operations, which are made possible by software-defined intelligence. This reduces infrastructure over-provisioning caused by resource silos and inefficient utilisation.
The software intelligence of composable infrastructure allows IT to automatically connect, aggregate, and control resources, moving away from the troubles associated with management and maintaining hardware residing in multiple physical locations.
Regardless of what future generations of computing may bring, composable infrastructure is designed with boundless capacity and flexibility in mind.
7. Operational efficiency
There is no need to stand up separate environments for different types of applications with composable infrastructure. The provisioning process is automated, meaning operational practices become more efficient.
By leveraging infrastructure-as-code, IT can easily accelerate the application development cycle. Developers can amend and optimise applications to meet customer requirements as they arise too.
9. Continuous development
Instant and near-continuous development processes are possible with composable solutions because the exact amounts of compute, storage, and networking fabric can be requested immediately.
10. Seamless integration
You can deploy composable infrastructure incrementally or as part of your standard refresh cycle. Either way, it gives you the ability to grow your capabilities at a pace that suits your business and its requirements.
