Optimizing Resource Utilization and Maximizing ROI with Composable Infrastructure

In this sponsored post, Silicon Mechanics discusses how today’s IT organizations must maximize their resource utilization to deliver the computing capabilities their organization needs when and where it’s needed. This has resulted in many organizations building multi-purpose clusters, which impacts performance. Composable disaggregated infrastructure (CDI) can hold the key to solving this optimization problem, while also providing bare metal performance.
