What is a Composable Infrastructure?
A composable infrastructure is a pool of hardware resources managed, or "composed," in a software-defined manner to meet the needs of applications with the goal of eliminating the need for the configuration of hardware. This works by treating hardware resources (compute, networks, storage) as services that can be composed on the fly via software to create a virtual server optimized for the application which needs the resources. The goal is to increase server utilization and efficiency, and reduce the time needed to deploy applications.
Composable infrastructure brings both stability and agility that helps businesses meet rapidly changing business needs. IT professionals are able to provision composable infrastructures much more easily than hardware based solutions. Composable infrastructure is perfect for businesses that want to make use of private and hybrid clouds.
Composable Infrastructure Features & Capabilities
Some of the following features are commonly offered by composable infrastructure solutions:
Compatibility with physical workloads
Composable Infrastructure Comparison
When choosing a composable infrastructure solution, businesses should consider exactly what they want their implementation to look like. Most composable infrastructure options support both physical and cloud workloads. Businesses can use them for hybrid or private clouds. Some are more specialized for specific workloads or implementations, so you should consider how you want to use your composable infrastructure when choosing a solution.
Composable Infrastructure Pricing
Pricing for composable infrastructure solutions depends on the scale of your implementation as well as the businesses feature needs. Businesses should expect to spend at least $10,000 on their composable infrastructure, with that rate increasing as feature needs become more complex.
