Can composable infrastructure and computational storage mix?

‘Composable’ and ‘computational’ are often said in the same breath, but how exactly are they related — or not? While there are differences, a combination could serve enterprises.

On the surface, composable infrastructure and computational storage seem like opposite technologies. Going forward, however, organizations could use both.

Startups leading the way in computational storage include Fungible and ScaleFlux. Fungible, for one, has designed a storage system to be composable, with an eye on hyperscale customers. There are several reasons why an enterprise would want to take advantage of the two types of platform, such as improving latency.

What is composable infrastructure?

Server virtualization was based on the idea that physical hosts contain more resources than most workloads need. Organizations could share these hardware resources between workloads.

Composable infrastructure takes this concept of resource sharing to the next level. It groups infrastructure components together into resource pools where workloads can use them. When a workload no longer needs certain hardware resources, the resources return to the pool so another workload can use them.



ScaleFlux is the pioneer in deploying Computational Storage at scale. Computational Storage is the foundation for modern, data-driven infrastructure that enables responsive performance, affordable scaling, and agile platforms for compute and storage I/O intensive applications. Founded in 2014, ScaleFlux is a well-funded startup with leaders proven to deploy complex computing and solid-state storage solutions in volume.
