Composable Infrastructure and HPE’s Synergy

  Recently, HPE invited me out to California for HPE Tech Day, and also the Nth Symposium.  I had a great time, and was happy to see what HPE has been up to! During the Tech Day briefing, I was introduced to a term I hadn’t heard before – Composable Infrastructure.
