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.
