Intel® Rack Scale Design (Intel® RSD) Architecture White Paper

IT managers, cloud services providers, and communications companies are all facing unprecedented challenges from new digital business models, rapid data center growth, and technology changes. The traditional data center built with servers configured for specific applications can’t keep pace with the demands of the Digital Economy. This paper describes the Intel® Rack Scale Design (Intel® RSD) hyperscale reference architecture, an open, interoperable approach to composable disaggregated infrastructure (CDI), the technology on which next generation hyperscale data centers will be built.
