The need to manage both traditional and next-gen cloud applications at the same time are crushing IT efficiency and degrading ROI on all investments. To bridge the gap, IT needs a hybrid infrastructure that is capable of seamlessly supporting, scaling, and maintaining all workloads. Composable infrastructure can help you speed transformation and future-proof your environments to handle the next wave of application innovations.

In short, composable infrastructures provide fluid pools of compute, storage, and fabric resources to run physical, virtualized, and containerized applications from a single platform. The top use cases for choosing hybrid IT and a composable infrastructure include:

Cloud agility
Resources can be allocated within minutes to stand up new applications and scale existing workloads. When infrastructure limits are reached, IT can simply plug in new devices to automatically add resources without integration issues.

Simplified administration
By uniting all workloads on a software-defined infrastructure, IT no longer needs to manage two separate infrastructures. IT generalists can use predefined templates to provision bare metal and virtual resources for any workload and apply consistent policies across all applications.

Accelerated development
When resources can be continuously assigned and reused, companies can empower DevOps and continuous development with a single platform for managing projects from testing through production.

Transformed TCO
Because administrators no longer have to provision infrastructure each time they want to launch a new initiative, they can move to a true pay-as-you-go IT growth model.

Shortened time to market
In today’s world, being able to quickly pivot and capitalize on new market, customer, and process opportunities is critical for outpacing competitors. With a composable infrastructure, companies can shift resources in minutes to instantly align IT with business goals.

Future-proofed data centers
As the Internet of Things (IoT), data, mobility, and cloud technologies continue to change IT requirements, data centers must be prepared to adjust accordingly. As an extendable platform and a foundation for hybrid IT, composable infrastructures offer the capacity, flexibility, and ecosystem to handle future generations of computing innovations.

To speed your move to hybrid IT, our team at IIS recommends HPE Synergy, which is the first platform built from the ground up to support composable infrastructure. With fluid resource modules and a software-defined architecture, it provides a true on-demand service delivery platform capable of advancing all your IT goals.
