I believe the Next Generation Computing is Software Defined Infrastructure on top of the robust physical infrastructure. You can ask me anything about enterprise infrastructure (virtualization, compute, storage, network) and we can discuss it deeply on this blog. Don't hesitate to contact me.
System administrators require the same agility and productivity from their hardware infrastructure that they get from the cloud. In response, Puppet Labs and EMC collaboratively developed Razor, a next-generation physical and virtual hardware provisioning solution. Razor provides you with unique capabilities for managing your hardware infrastructure, including:
Auto-Discovered Real-Time Inventory Data
Dynamic Image Selection
Open APIs and Plug-in Architecture
Metal-to-Cloud Application Lifecycle Management
Together, Razor and Puppet enable system administrators to automate every phase of the IT infrastructure lifecycle, from bare metal to fully deployed cloud applications.
