Hyperscale data centres are vast premises that offer power, cooling, and space for network and IT infrastructure. They are specifically designed to deliver a suite of highly scalable storage services and applications to corporations. IDC states that a hyperscale facility has room of at least 10,000 sq. ft. and hosts over 5,000 servers


A hyperscale data centre’s infrastructure is specialized and is designed and built for expansion. It can scale up the services of power requirements, storage, networking, connectivity, and computing as per client needs.  


Why are Hyperscale Data Facilities Preferred? 


Today, there is increasing demand for IoT functionality and cloud computing services and this is making data centres indispensable to businesses. Stats show that at least 33% of all data goes through the cloud. To keep up with the growing demand for advanced technologies and information, data centres are continuously adapting and evolving with upgrades and improvements. In India, the hyperscale data centre market is predicted to top 25 billion by 2025


Let’s now look at why hyperscale data centres are preferred by businesses: 


Scalability as per current needs: Organizations have peak periods when demand is high and low periods when there is tepid demand. A hyperscale facility allows them to scale up or down as per current requirements.  


Speed: Hyperscale data centres permit the swift installation, development, and management of your changing computing needs.  


Easier Management: Hyperscale facilities are easy to manage because they need fewer control layers. Therefore, fewer people are required to handle the different functional operations.  


Easier shift to the cloud: Typically, firms start with migrating non-critical systems to the cloud and then transition to shifting mission-critical ones. Some enterprises may wish to integrate their private cloud with the public cloud. These organizations can use hyperscale data centres to transition smoothly to the cloud at their own speed. 


Minimized losses due to downtime: Hyperscale facilities are built to decrease downtime due to complications like excessive demand. They also help IT systems quickly go online after downtime.
