2018 OCP Summit US: Liqid Announces General Availability of Industry’s First Bare-metal Composable Infrastructure Platform for AI

With True Disaggregation of Storage, Compute, Networking and Graphics Processing, Liqid Composable Delivers the Market’s Most Adaptive Architecture for Emerging Applications

SAN JOSE, Calif.--()--Liqid, a leader in composable infrastructure, has chosen the Open Compute Project (OCP) Summit 2018 (booth #C21) to announce general availability (GA) of its composable infrastructure data center platform. Liqid’s solutions enable true disaggregation, delivering complete, bare-metal composability for data center resources. IT administrators can now pool and deploy open hardware elements of storage, compute, networking and, for the first time, graphics processing (GPU), across intelligent fabric. Liqid Composable exponentially increases hardware performance and utilization while empowering administrators with far greater flexibility and resource efficiency, delivering disaggregated composable infrastructure solutions purpose-built for the Age of Artificial Intelligence (AI).

“Composable infrastructure solutions allow IT users to emulate what the most successful ISPs have accomplished with hyperscale architecture and custom software, without the expense and inflexibility of an all-in-one, integrated configurations”

At OCP 2018, Liqid will demonstrate its composable infrastructure platform leveraging solutions from industry-leading partners, including Inspur Systems and NVIDIA. Liqid will highlight the benefits of composability to the open compute community and leading organizations preparing to compete in a data-intensive economy driven by AI.

“Composable infrastructure solutions allow IT users to emulate what the most successful ISPs have accomplished with hyperscale architecture and custom software, without the expense and inflexibility of an all-in-one, integrated configurations,” said Eric Slack, Sr Analyst, Evaluator Group. “Bare-metal composable platforms also possess the potential to deliver on the core ethos of the open compute movement, permitting data center engineers to architect truly disaggregated scalable solutions for next generation applications and workflows.”

Liqid Composable: A Catalyst for Open Infrastructure

Delivering the most open and complete composable infrastructure solution, IT teams can compose bare-metal servers from disaggregated pools of compute, storage, networking, and GPU resources across the Liqid Grid, an intelligent PCI-Express (PCIe) fabric. Liqid Command Center orchestration software allows users to dynamically redistribute those resources, via GUI, API, or command-line interface, to achieve far greater, more consistent hardware utilization.

Liqid Composable is purpose-built to right-size the infrastructure for any given workload. This enables infrastructure to scale and process the volumes of data associated with increasingly ubiquitous Internet of Things (IoT) deployments, edge computing environments, and other emerging advancements in AI.

Solutions from Liqid are now addressing some of the most challenging use cases in telecom, media and entertainment, cloud services, DevOps, medical research, high performance computing, research and development, and other data-intensive environments where traditional solutions cannot meet the demand.

“With general availability of composable infrastructure solutions from Liqid, all IT users can now deploy Liqid Composable to close gaps in infrastructure performance, significantly improve utilization, and prepare their infrastructure for AI applications that can produce enhanced value when freed for total scalability,” said Marius Tudor, Vice President, Sales, Liqid. “The Liqid engineering and sales teams look forward to working with a wide variety of customers, resellers, and OEMs, across industry verticals, to deliver greater purchasing autonomy and more open platforms for organizations to equip their data center facilities with true, on-demand bare-metal composability.”
