Evolving System Architecture: Disaggregated and Composable Systems
This IDC study provides an overview of the current trends regarding disaggregated and composable systems and discusses the types of workloads, applications, and customers that are driving demand for these technologies."Concepts of disaggregating IT systems down to discrete resources have been discussed in the industry for some time, even though the enabling technologies have yet to mature. Next-generation applications and shifts in customer requirements are now fueling the demand for disaggregated and composable systems," said Jed Scaramella, research director of Compute and Hardware Platforms, IDC. "This emerging category of systems aggregates compute, storage, and fabric resources into shared resource pools that can be available for on-demand allocation. This creates greater business agility, lower operational costs, and better application performance."
