Recently, our valued partners at global systems integrator World Wide Technology (WWT) announced that they will sell composable, disaggregated systems based on Liqid Matrix™ composable disaggregated infrastructure software. Further, WWT will feature data center systems based on Liqid Matrix software in its Advanced Technology Center. Now, WWT customers can get under the hood and better understand the efficiency, flexibility, and time-to-value that Liqid CDI provides for AI+ML, advanced HPC, and edge computing. We couldn’t be more excited to be featured in this incredible facility!
Located at WWT headquarters in St. Louis, the ATC provides a B2B Platform built on a collection of physical labs, virtualized to create a collaborative innovation ecosystem to design, build, educate and deploy innovative technology products, integrated architectural solutions and digital business outcomes for our customers, partners, employees and communities around the globe.
WWT discussed the partnership to provide Liqid CDI software to its customers and feature it in the ATC in a blog entry by Matthew Halcomb, Principal Solutions Architect, and Dave Alexander, Technical Solutions Architect - Server Infrastructure.
“Liqid’s fast, easy, intuitive CDI solution – an approach to composability that’s equally effective within the enterprise data center or at the edge, allowing you to take advantage of the latest infrastructure innovations from Intel, Dell and other technology leaders to drive performance, cost-effectiveness and security,” they said.
CDI systems featured at the ATC include:
- Liqid Composable vSAN HCI Appliance, employing a solid-state vSAN solution bundle that leverages NVMe SSDs and Intel® storage memory technology for hyperconverged and virtualized environments to improve data center agility, management and utilization.
- Liqid Composable GPU for Dell MX7000, for workloads like AI that require parallel accelerated computing, Liqid enables GPU to be composed into the PowerEdge MX7000 Modular Chassis, improve data center agility, management and utilization.
“The very nature of a composable infrastructure – optimizing resources, reducing physical footprints, conserving IT personnel – makes OpEx / CapEx considerations highly attractive and increases overall ROI by reducing the time and expense of right-sizing the data center environment.”
Visit the WWT Advanced Technology Center to learn more about what’s cooking at WWT and the potential for Liqid CDI systems. As their team put it: “See for yourself how the promise of composability has finally been realized in Dell servers in blade and rack form factors, powered by Intel Xeon Scalable processors managing pooled resources in the Liqid Command Center, and deployed by WWT.”
