Takeaway: There are no shortage of ways to design infrastructure to solve a specific problem. One popular new trend is the modular server, as Rick Vanover explains.
One of the things I enjoy in my professional capacity is that I constantly am exposed to different environments. Most of those environments are focused on delivering an optimized VMware or Hyper-V infrastructure, which makes sense today.

But for smaller organizations, there is a great opportunity to deliver all of the features for a virtualized infrastructure; however, there are clear guardrails around price and complexity.
