Forecasts Worldwide 2017 – 2023
A Hyperscale datacenter is the next big thing in the cloud datacenter structure which is quite different from a traditional datacenter. The approach that will be used for a Hyperscale datacenter is dependent on the datacenter requirements for servers and its management. Hyperscale datacenter brings the compute power to the edge. The Usage of commodity equipment provides flexibility to the organizations to scale as per the requirement, while keeping costs as low as possible.
The Hyperscale Datacenter market carries forward the cloud computing resources with highly secure systems which maintains integrity of the confidential data. Cloud datacenters are surpassing the enterprise datacenters requirements and are gradually replacing the enterprise web server farms with cloud computing and automated cloud computing 2.0. The implementation of such a big cloud computing capability with security provides economies of scale which cannot be even matched by the current high end datacenter standalone server technology. The cloud 2.0 works much better and its implementations features simplicity of design which is achieved with scale. The cloud 2.0 datacenters contains 2 main components- First an ASIC server (single chip server) and an ASIC switch (matching network switch).
The major drivers of cloud 2.0 mega datacenter are
- Cost Benefit
- Increasing colocation services
- Data Consolidation Requirement
AWS (Amazon Web Services), Microsoft, Google and Facebook have world class datacenters with automatic functionality that operates at fiber optics speeds with access to any node in a particular datacenter which helps in automation of applications and integration of any data in the mega datacenter.
Whereas the Cloud 2.0 mega datacenters are build to deliver unprecedented speeds and offers modularity. They can be upgraded on demand to meet insatiable bandwidth requirements.
According to Susan Eustis, President and CEO, Co-Founder of WinterGreen Research:
“The mega datacenters have stepped in to do the job of automated process in the datacenter, increasing compute capacity efficiently by simplifying the processing task into two simple component parts that can scale on demand. The added benefit of automated application integration brings massive savings to the IT budget, replacing manual process for application integration.”
The growth of the internet by a factor of 100 over the past decade demanded Hyperscale datacenters which have evolved to provide processing at mega scale, known as cloud computing which involves a flexible and agile infrastructure is flexible to support the computing requirements.
Thomas Zhou, senior research manager of IDC, says that Hyperscale is the future.
“In the next five years, more than 60% of the datacenters investment growth will come from Hyperscale datacenters, and the modular isomorphism will be one of the main characteristics of the Hyperscale datacenters.”
A Hyperscale environment is better in terms of large data volume, computing resources and will be an attraction for more users, smaller organization thus reducing overall energy expenses and cutting down resource consumption and works as per demand.
