7 reasons the next generation mainframe will be part of your hyperscale cloud.
Hyperscale computing is a set of architectural patterns for delivering scale-out IT capabilities at massive, industrialized scale. Many enterprises that are pressured to develop innovations quickly and “hyper” scale those innovations to millions of users worldwide are now looking to hyperscale cloud.
Hyperscale computing has, until now, involved abstracting data centers into software running on low-cost servers and standard storage drives. These large-scale data centers are located near low-cost power sources and offer availability through massive build-out of redundant components. Hyperscale computing usually involves a minimum of half a million servers (the bragging rights seem to be about how much real estate one owns), virtual machines (VMs), or containers.
