This IDC Perspective discusses how GigaIO is helping usher in the era of open, truly composable disaggregated infrastructure (CDI). Composable disaggregated infrastructure promises to enable improved IT infrastructure efficiency and lower costs for the AI and other demanding workloads being deployed as enterprises move to a "digital first" orientation in their business models. There have been several false starts in this space built around proprietary offerings, but standards have emerged that are being supported by multiple vendors in this area, and IDC published its first revenue forecast for CDI in May 2021. After discussing how the market is developing, this document discusses GigaIO, an early entrant in the CDI space that is gaining significant traction already."Driven by the evolving compute and storage needs of artificial intelligence-driven workloads being deployed as part of digital transformation, enterprises are looking to harness the advantages of composable, disaggregated infrastructure to allow better resource sharing, enable easier bursting and scalability, and lower infrastructure costs," said Eric Burgener, research vice president, Infrastructure Systems Group, IDC. "GigaIO has established itself as an early leader in this market segment with a solution that is based around well-accepted industry standards and provides support for heterogeneous compute, memory, storage, and networking device types."
