Defining Composable Infrastructure and the Future of the Data Center

As IT moves toward an increasingly software-defined infrastructure, leaders are in search of new frameworks and approaches to building systems that can meet modern demands and future needs. Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) is at the forefront of software-defined transformation, and the company has a strong point of view when it comes to composable infrastructure. In short, composable infrastructure is a framework that supports rich and reliable architecture in software-defined environments.

We spoke with McLeod Glass, vice president and general manager of SimpliVity and composable infrastructure product management, at CDW's Executive Summit in Chicago about understanding the need for composable infrastructure and foreseeing the future of the data center.

  • Composable infrastructure allows IT to treat technology in a fluid, pooled way.
  • HPE is focused on the hybrid, software-defined world in which assets are managed both on-premises and off-premises.
