Propel Your Data Center Into the Future

Dynamically compose resources based on workload-specific demands.

Intel® Rack Scale Design (Intel® RSD) is a revolutionary, new 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

Intel® RSD complements virtualization, cloud computing, and other software-oriented approaches by dynamically composing workload-optimized hardware while at the same time allowing workloads to run on bare-metal and do it all with a single management console.

  • HARDWARE: Intel® RSD adds the ability to dynamically compose physical hardware resources into the most optimal configuration for each workload. This ability to “compose on the fly” frees data center managers from time consuming tasks of re-partitioning hardware manually. When compute, storage, and network resources are underutilized, they can be re-allocated with ease.
  • SOFTWARE: Intel® RSD is built on a modern, open RESTful API standard that is gaining wide adoption in the industry. By using an open standard, end users are not “locked in” to a proprietary vendor’s solution. Using the open-sourced Intel® RSD reference software, OEMs can provide additional innovation and differentiation beyond the API standard.

Intel® RSD - Revolutionizing the Data Center

Laying the foundation for the modern scalable data center:

  • FLEXIBLE: Quickly and dynamically configure customized systems to meet your needs
  • MANAGEABLE: Discover, compose, and monitor infrastructure using powerful, modern API-based software
  • ECONOMICAL: Buy and upgrade only what you need and when you need it
  • OPEN: Benefits of choice, interoperability, flexibility, and industry-wide innovation
