There’s been a lot of talk in the past several months about composable infrastructure. It’s a new product category that has gained attention as Cisco and other vendors have introduced new products into the market. A webinar on January 21 with Forrester Research analyst, Richard Fichera, will provide insights into what is driving the demand for this new technology and explain the technology. The webinar will also feature a customer describing how they use composable infrastructure.
The increasing demand to provide an infrastructure that is more flexible and adaptable while still being easy to use is causing Cisco and other vendors to introduce new types of products. Composable infrastructure is a new category of systems that addresses this requirement. With new categories also comes some confusion, so we’ve asked an industry expert to provide some perspective for this webinar. The guest speaker, Richard Fichera, is a Vice President with Forrester Research. Rich is a principal analyst serving infrastructure and operations professionals.
Understanding Composable Infrastructure
Cisco was the first company to introduce a composable infrastructure product, the M-Series, in 2014. In 2015 we introduced our second composable product, the C3260. Both products are designed to optimize different types of workloads. We’ve asked one of our customers to join us for the webinar, so you can get a better understanding of how they use composable infrastructure in their environment.
There are two vendors that have announced plans to begin shipping composable infrastructure products later this year. HPE announced their new Synergy product in December. Dell introduced their rack-scale DCS ‘G5’ hardware solution last fall at the Intel IDF, and Ericsson launched the HDS 8000 product in 2015. Both products are composable infrastructure based on Intel’s Rack Scale Architecture.
Composable infrastructure and hyperconverged infrastructure are two new product categories that will be generating a lot of buzz in 2016. Be sure to join us for this webinar to gain insights on this fascinating topic
