Thinking About Intel Rack-Scale Architecture

Scott Lowe

You may have heard of Intel Rack-Scale Architecture (RSA), a new approach to designing data center hardware. Some software that combines disaggregated hardware capacity over a rack-scale fabric to create “pooled systems” When you look at Intel RSA this way—and this is the way that it is typically positioned and described—it just doesn’t seem to make sense. Why should they buy this architecture instead of just buying servers?

Did you want a side of SLBS (server less BS) with your software or hardware FUD?

Storage IO Blog

It turns out, serverless BS (SLBS) and hardware less are still trendy, and while some might view the cloud or software-defined data center (SDDC) virtualization, or IoT folks as the culprits, it is more widespread with plenty of bandwagon riders. To me what’s ironic is that many purveyors of of SLBS also like to talk about hardware. The post Did you want a side of SLBS (server less BS) with your software or hardware FUD?
