Insights and trends on hyperscale computing and data centers
A Hyperscale data centers is defined as when one tenant leases at least 10 Megawatts of data center space. Typically, the architectures are designed to provide a single, massively scalable compute architecture that can scale with demand. Hyperscale computing is necessary when a company needs to build a robust and scalable cloud, AI, or distributed storage system and is often associated with the infrastructure required to run global companies such as Facebook, Google, Microsoft and Amazon.
Data center developer Quantum Loophole says it has lined up deals for a whopping 240 megawatts of capacity at its new hyperscale campus in Frederick County, Maryland. The company is building a 2,100-acre campus to provide cloud computing companies with huge sites to support years of growth.
