New approaches to infrastructure design are required for businesses to keep up with the amount of data that is generated, and whose timely analysis is of paramount importance for the business to remain competitive in the digital economy. Newer approaches to infrastructure must focus on efficiency to minimize budgetary shocks on IT departments, and agility to respond to business needs on-demand. Businesses are embracing new-generation applications to prepare themselves for the future, while maintaining current-gen applications that support revenue-generating operations.

Composable infrastructure technologies from vendors like TidalScale are designed with these key objectives in mind. They are designed to support both current and new generation of applications, thus enabling IT to better service revenue-generating operations while also supporting their business foray into the future. Crucially, Composable software solutions are software defined, and maximize return on investments in server hardware by pooling compute, memory and disk resources for maximum efficiency, utilization, and visibility across the entire datacenter, and not just a cluster of servers.
