Hyperscale cloud – reimagining data centers from hardware to applications
The hyperscale approach can help industries meet the IT capacity demands of the Networked Society. Transforming data centers in this way goes beyond hardware to impact the software layer, including hypervisors, operating systems, cloud platforms and – ultimately – applications.
However, challenges must be overcome if hyperscale is to be fully realized. As well as revealing the scope of this vision, this paper sets out the key considerations and questions for data center operators at every layer – from hardware to applications.
