Composable Infrastructure Technology

Pogo Linux composable infrastructure solutions – powered by software-defined infrastructure management software and network fabric switch – enables any data center operators the ability to adjust their infrastructure to meet real-time business needs.

Compose Bare-Metal Servers in Seconds

Configure, manage and administer bare-metal compute nodes – on-demand and at scale. Rearchitect data center hardware via software management API’s and provision into configurable bare-metal compute nodes. Pools of storage, compute, networking, and graphics processing (GPU) devices are interconnected over PCI-Express (PCIe) or ethernet. Then, quickly reallocate resources as business needs evolve.

Composability vs. Virtualization/Containerization

Take the visual diagram of a glass of orange juice: In virtualization/containerization, the orange juice is provisioned to give multiple users the appearance that several glasses of orange juice are available.

Based on requirements, each user has access to resources without the ability to exceed capacity, nor return underutilized resources during off-peak hours for other users. As a result, virtualization and containerization are great to share a single server and support many users with small enough needs, but not an optimal framework to maximize resource utilization.

The root of composability is the opposite approach of virtualization/containerization: the individual components of a glass of orange juice that make up the whole – the orange juice, straw, slices of orange – are disaggregated into a virtual whole. In composability, a glass of orange juice is customized for each user's unique requirements by taking individual components, such as the orange juice, 2 straws, 5 slices of orange.

The API management software orchestrates the provisioning of the resource pools by composing bare-metal environments – not virtual environments with a hypervisor layer. The hardware elements are separated – CPU’s, NVMe SSD’s, GPU’s, NIC’s and FPGA – and independently assigned into server nodes. Based on hosted application requirements, components can be scaled-up or down, as needs change.

Data Center Strategy: Composable IT vs. Virtualization

As the number of applications outstrip a static architecture's hosting ability, the total utilization decreases.
