The Case for Composable Infrastructure

Posted on: April 1st, 2017 by Daniella Lundsberg

Established organizations with traditional IT infrastructures are challenged to fully leverage their investments in their legacy systems. The issue is that in today’s digital economy, these older systems simply can’t keep up with the demands of business. Organizations are finding that by attempting to retrofit their legacy systems, they are actually increasing their operating costs in the short term and are missing important opportunities over the long term.

Legacy IT–laden companies are poised to fall behind newer, digital competitors who are unburdened by older systems. These competitors are reaping the benefits of modern IT infrastructures by being able to execute on agile product-development cycles, digital operating models and lower operating costs. They can quickly and more easily respond to market shifts by gleaning real-time insights from their customer data.

What’s an organization to do?

It is unrealistic to ask IT to reduce operating costs in these traditional environments and simultaneously increase operational velocity in the new application domain. A new IT architecture is required. It must be one that facilitates innovation and value creation for a new breed of applications. And it must run traditional workloads more efficiently.

This modern IT architecture, developed by Hewlett Packard Enterprise, is Composable Infrastructure. It is as innovative as it is groundbreaking. HPE Composable Infrastructure deploys resources as needed—quickly and for any workload—using intelligent software. It is built around fluid pools of physical and virtual compute, storage and fabric. It reduces operational effort and costs through internal software-defined intelligence with template-driven, frictionless operations. And it helps increase productivity by integrating and automating infrastructure operations and applications through a unified API. Thus, IT can create and deliver value instantly, continuously and at the speed and flexibility of cloud—within its own secure data center.

HPE Synergy is the first platform of its kind, architected from the ground up as a truly composable system environment. HPE Synergy’s unified infrastructure reduces operational complexity for traditional workloads and increases operational velocity for the new breed of applications and services. It easily enables a broad range of applications and operational models such as virtualization, hybrid cloud and DevOps.
