Composable Infrastructure Will Save the Data Center From the Cloud

With the rise of Kubernetes and other completely cloud-based deployments, on-premises data centers seem to be on the way out to make way for the scalability and dynamism of the cloud. Innovations in data center and AI composability showcased by Xilinx and Micron at the last Tech Field Day event as well as those displayed by Liqid at the recent AI Field Day event, however, might say otherwise. By defining infrastructure operations through software — much like how the cloud does — and building it on top of faster, more capable hardware, data centers can act at the speed of business, saving them from being outdated and outmatched by cloud-based infrastructure.
