BROOMFIELD, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 15, 2018--Liqid, leading provider of on-demand composable infrastructure technologies, is proud to announce that top industry analyst firm Gartner, Inc., has recognized Liqid as a Cool Vendor in the 2018 Cool Vendors in Cloud Infrastructure,1 report. According to the report, authored by Philip Dawson, Arun Chandrasekaran, Julia Palmer, “The goal of building and sustaining dynamic hybrid cloud infrastructures is driving new approaches to composable, agile and cloud development technologies. Infrastructure & Operations leaders tasked with cloud infrastructure projects should be aware of these innovative approaches for cloud infrastructure delivery.”

Liqid enables IT users to break the final physical barriers of motherboard-centric data center architectures. With Liqid Composable, disaggregated data center resources of compute, storage, networking, and graphics processing (GPU) can be pooled and scaled natively across PCI-Express (PCIe) fiber, with Liqid’s management software delivering bare-metal servers on demand, as required. When workloads have been completed, resources are released back into the environment for use by other applications, significantly improving utilization of valuable NVMe flash and increasingly ubiquitous GPU.

As the Gartner report describes, “Software-defined infrastructure must provision storage, compute and network infrastructure and deliver high flexibility and custom-fit high performance for virtualized or bare-metal workloads.”

Liqid composable infrastructure solutions and services answer this need for adaptive, software-centric architecture to address the massive data demand associated with artificial intelligence and machine learning applications; evolving high performance computing; DevOps; Internet of Things (IoT) sensor data processing; non-traditional computing environments such as edge facilities; and other high-value, next-gen applications driving economic development over the next decade.

“Liqid is honored to join the list of Gartner’s Cool Vendors in Cloud Infrastructure for 2018,” said Sumit Puri, CEO and Cofounder, Liqid. “While unique among our industry peers, Liqid’s ability to scale bare-metal resources for next-gen applications is gaining rapid industry adoption due to the simplicity, increased efficiencies, and agility of the disaggregated platform, and we are grateful for Gartner analysts’ acknowledgement of our innovations in composable infrastructure in this latest report.”
