There's an up-and-coming IT environment in town, and its name is composable infrastructure.
It's not brand-new, per se, as composable ideas have been around in one form or another for a while. What's happening now is vendors have started to codify these concepts into products enterprises can deploy and benefit from.
Composable infrastructure (CI), or architecture, includes elements of convergence and hyper-convergence, among other technologies, to deliver an infrastructure paradigm that promises to make it possible to deploy compute, storage, network and other IT resources on the fly for a wide variety of specific applications, workloads and use cases.
It delivers these more agile IT environments for today's digital transformations and fast-paced businesses, where taking days or weeks to stand up an infrastructure puts companies at a competitive disadvantage. It essentially enables administrators and others to allocate and reallocate resources without requiring the reconfiguration hardware.
With this quiz, you can test your knowledge of composable infrastructure basics and find out why the technology is raising eyebrows as the next stage in the evolution of convergence after CI and hyper-converged infrastructure. We'll examine major features of composable infrastructure, its advantages and disadvantages, the level of abstraction and technology layers inherent to the technology, and vendors that are currently offering products and platforms based on composable principles.
