Propel Your Data Center Into the Future

Dynamically compose resources based on workload-specific demands.

Intel® Rack Scale Design is a logical architecture that disaggregates compute, storage, and network resources, and introduces the ability to more efficiently pool and utilize these resources.

Unlock Infrastructure Potential with Intel® Rack Scale Design

Virtualization and cloud computing have been two of the forces driving transformation in the data center. A third element—and the missing piece—is a flexible computing, storage, and network backbone that will usher in an age of truly agile digital infrastructure. Learn how Intel addresses the challenges of your data center.
