Fabric-Based Infrastructure (FBI)

Definition - What does Fabric-Based Infrastructure (FBI) mean?

Fabric-based infrastructure (FBI) is an approach that aims to deliver an automated data center solution by integration of hardware and software infrastructures. It calls for delivering a real-time data center infrastructure that is dynamically provisioned, controlled and automated.

Techopedia explains Fabric-Based Infrastructure (FBI)

FBI primarily combines and unifies hardware and software infrastructure, controlled and managed by an automation solution at the top. It is mainly a vendor-side infrastructure provisioning approach, where the vendor automates the provisioning of servers, storage, software, networking and/or IT, cloud and virtualization environments. Fabric-based infrastructure enables organizations in reducing data center capex/opex, minimizing provisioning time from months to minutes and recreating infrastructure instances quickly.
