Liqid's software-defined adaptive architecture solves fundamental hardware utilization problem

Liqid, provider of the world´s most-comprehensive composable infrastructure solutions and services platform, has announced its disaggregated composable infrastructure solutions are now optimized to meet the unique demands of VMware vSAN and VDI installations, the company said.

With on-demand, bare-metal resource orchestration and automation, virtualized environments are freed from the physical limitations of the underlying hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) hardware on which they are deployed. Bare-metal servers can be created through software to effectively treat bare metal hardware as disaggregated resource pools, breaking with the one-to-one model that tethers virtualization licensing to physical CPUs.

Disaggregated accelerator technologies like GPU, FPGA, and Intel® Optane™ memory can now be added on demand and utilized as shared resources in quantities that best correspond with a given virtualized compute task. Hypervisors such as vSAN can orchestrate resource allocation via Liqid APIs, extending the life of existing hardware and allowing IT organizations to grow infrastructure as required.

Liqid delivers composable, software-defined infrastructure solutions and services that automate, orchestrate and compose resources at the bare-metal level, optimizing hardware deployments for virtual environments. IT users can significantly increase data agility, capacity, and bandwidth, leveraging pools of disaggregated GPU, FPGAs, CPUs, NVMe SSD, and Intel Optane memory extension technologies to create balanced systems that can adapt on-demand or through automation and policy based management.

Liqid provides the world´s most comprehensive software-defined composable infrastructure platform. The Liqid Composable platform empowers users to manage, scale, and configure physical, bare-metal server systems in seconds and then reallocate core data center devices on-demand as workflows and business needs evolve. Liqid Command Center software enables users to dynamically right-size their IT resources on-the-fly. For more information, contact info@liqid.com or visit www.liqid.com.
