It is first in class for composable infrastructure. It has the scalability that meets our future needs and the automation that builds into something that we are really looking forward to using.​The composable infrastructure allows us to build our own server profiles, then build up the infrastructure that we need from compute modules.Everything is combined in one chassis, you have storage, compute, networking.

That would be helpful.The update is problematic. When you want to update the firmware, or when you want to update software on Composer, it takes a lot of time.
