Scale-out clusters are typically deployed on industry standard rack servers, but with growth in deployments comes administrators' desire for independent compute and storage resource scaling to achieve flexibility and responsiveness while Controlling costs.

In this talk, Tom Lyon will discuss properties of scale-out software stacks and how they inform infrastructure architecture. They'll then discuss "rack scale architectures” as an emerging trend for scale-out and describe modifications to iSCSI technology that can accelerate adoption of these architectures.
