Robert Hormuth, CTO Server & Infrastructre Systems, Dell EMC, provides background on composability which is the notion of taking resources and pulling them together to create a more optimized infrastructure for IT. As workloads are changing rapidly with new application like Edge Computing, Machine Learning and Deep Learning, generating immense amounts of data, the IT infrastructure needs to be more agile and efficient to leverage insights form the massive amounts of data, often in real-time.
Driving towards full composability, kinetic infrastructure represents a dynamic IT architecture that instantly responds, adapts and evolves with shifting needs, matching the workload. Stranded resources, like storage, equal potential energy – and potential energy does nothing for the business when stranded. Kinetic infrastructure puts capital investment back in motion to deliver improved productivity and better use of IT resources.
