  • Leveraging True Convergence Wed 5th Oct 15:00 - 15:30

    Leveraging True Convergence

    Delivering computing infrastructure has become a balancing-act between deployment of frameworks like OpenStack, software providing the illusion of convergence and virtualization trying to maintain a return on the investments made across the silos of commodity hardware. KALEAO KMAX introduces the first true-convergence platform delivering appliance-level simplicity and the cost advantages of ARM 64bit hardware within a fully integrated hardware/software stack for the out-of-the-box, web-scale delivery of application services.

    This talk will introduce the KMAX technology, the system design choices and the KALEAO physicalization which enables software defined hardware management of disaggregated resources, reaching unparalleled results in performance and energy efficiency.
