According to WIKIPEDIA's definition of Composability: "...highly composable systems provide components that can be selected and assembled in various combinations to satisfy specific user requirements." The key qualifier in this definition is the "user" and not the OEM.
Competitive OEM solutions require the user to adopt the OEM's Software and the OEM's hardware. Liqid does not believe in this type of Vendor Lock. One of the biggest benefits of the Liqid solution is that it is truly software agnostic. All of a datacenter's software lives on the Liqid PCIe fabric switch. It doesn't force the user to put any drivers, any agents, or any software modules on the compute nodes themselves. They're bare metal compute nodes, run whatever software you want.
If you want to run a bare metal OS, run a bare metal OS. If you want to run a virtualization layer or a hypervisor, run a virtualization or hypervisor, if it works on a static server today, it's going to work even better on Liqid's platform. This is one of the big benefits that Liqid provides—a completely transparent solution for the end user's environment—with no modifications or changes required. Watch this video to learn more.
