Equus Compute Solutions, one of America’s largest manufacturers of custom computer hardware systems, will present an Intel Tech Talk presentation session Breaking Vendor Lock-in using White Box System Management on Wednesday, August 30 at 3:00 p.m. in the Intel VMworld booth #500. VMworld is taking place August 27-31, 2017 at the Mandalay Bay resort in Las Vegas, NV.
Many IT organizations have been using hardware layer management interfaces sold by legacy big brand vendors, but these tools are very costly and provided via long-term contracts. These vendor lock-in mechanisms are frustrating and expensive. An escape to white box servers is the answer. In the past, system management tools were not up to par. However, today’s white box servers offer the same or better remote hardware management tools for significantly less money – sometimes free.
“We will discuss how IT organizations can leverage new system management tools,” said David Arndt, Equus Director Virtualization Solutions who be the presenter in the Intel booth. “The vision of a cost-effective heterogeneous server infrastructure is now a reality using these new advanced system management tools. We will discuss new server management tools such as Redfish and Open BMC.”
