Hyperscale Data Centers; What Are They and Why Should You Care

Posted on February 1, 2018 by Reegan Barnett

The advent of the cloud has changed the way data centers operate. At one time, they consisted of a more a simplistic networking infrastructure, one that relied on separate racks, targeted staff and distinct management tools to get the job done. It was a setup that worked at the time because the applications, themselves, were separate and used only local resources to run.

Today, businesses are largely Internet-dependent and that changes how things work and operate. Data centers utilize applications that work together via the web and cloud services. That shift has given birth to the hyperscale data center.
