Composable Computing

What is composable computing?Composable computing enables the dynamic assembly of computing resources tailored to the needs of performance-intensive workloads.

In a composable computing environment, virtualized resources such as compute, storage, and networking, are dynamically configured and reconfigured to meet the specific requirements of various workloads in high performance computing (HPC) and artificial intelligence (AI) systems. This approach maximizes resource utilization and efficiency, supporting scalability and flexibility. Composable computing is also known as composable infrastructure and composable architecture.

Composable infrastructure is built on three key components.

  • Composable hardware
  • Composable software
  • API-driven automation

Ayar Labs’ optical I/O is uniquely suitable for composable hardware applications due to the optical interconnect’s inherent high-speed, high-throughput, low-latency, and error-free nature.

The hardware layer consists of computing, storage, and networking resources. Optical I/O provides the following advantages:

Resource efficiency: Traditional converged infrastructure often faces the challenge of over-provisioning, where resources are allocated but remain underutilized. Composable optically enabled hardware infrastructure, on the other hand, ensures that resources are allocated exactly when and where they are needed.

Scalability: Composable optically enabled infrastructure is scalable by its nature. New systems, such as servers, storage, or networking resources, can be seamlessly integrated into the existing pool, allowing organizations to scale up or down quickly in response to varying workloads thanks to Ayar Labs’ very high-bandwidth, high-throughput, low-latency, and error-free optical interconnect.

Adaptability: Optically enabled composable systems enable a higher level of adaptability using optical interfaces that can carry different protocols, ensuring applications have the necessary resources to perform optimally regardless of the protocol used.

Cost savings: Organizations can significantly cut down on hardware and operational costs by optimizing resource utilization and reducing the need for over-provisioning. Composable infrastructure using Ayar Labs’ optical I/O enables resource abstraction into virtualized pools, allowing resource selection based on application requirements for better resource utilization.
