With composability, you can dynamically configure servers to meet the needs of your workloads without physically moving any hardware components. You bind disaggregated hardware components (compute, network, storage, and offload components) together to create a logical system based on the needs of your applications. These logical systems function like traditional rack mount systems.

The VMware Cloud Foundation composability feature is available for HPE Synergy and Dell MX servers and uses the Redfish translation layer to connect to the composable hardware infrastructure. Redfish Translation Layer supports data models used to get composable resources and zones restrictions from the hardware infrastructure. It is designed to be extensible and vendor agnostic. You must obtain and install the Redfish appliance from the composable hardware vendor.

It is recommended that you compose and decompose servers only through VMware Cloud Foundation, and not through the vendor software.
Note: Ensure that you follow the restriction on storage sled placement on Dell MX servers. Refer to vendor documentation for more information.
