What is Hyperscale and why does it matter?

Hyperscale elastic databases are becoming increasingly popular among corporate entities due to their numerous benefits. In this blog, we will explore the advantages of hyperscale elastic databases and how they can benefit corporate entities. We will also provide supporting data and industry insights to demonstrate the importance of this technology.

What are Hyperscale Elastic Databases?

Hyperscale elastic databases are cloud-based databases that offer scalability and flexibility to handle the increasing volume and complexity of data. These databases can accommodate a wide range of data types and are designed to handle large-scale data processing and analytics. With hyperscale elastic databases, businesses can easily scale up or down as needed, making it easier to manage peak workloads without worrying about performance issues.

Benefits of Hyperscale Elastic Databases for Corporations

  • Scalability

One of the main benefits of hyperscale elastic databases is their ability to scale up or down as needed. With traditional databases, scaling requires a significant amount of time and effort, as well as potentially expensive hardware upgrades. However, with hyperscale elastic databases, scaling is much easier and can be done in a matter of minutes. This makes it easier for businesses to handle spikes in traffic or workloads without compromising on performance.

  • Cost Savings

Hyperscale elastic databases can help businesses save money in a variety of ways. First, by using cloud-based databases, businesses can avoid the costs associated with on-premise infrastructure, such as hardware, maintenance, and upgrades. Second, hyperscale elastic databases offer a pay-as-you-go model, allowing businesses to pay only for the resources they use. This can lead to significant cost savings, especially for businesses that experience fluctuating workloads.

  • Flexibility

Hyperscale elastic databases offer businesses the flexibility to handle a wide range of data types and workloads. They can be used for everything from transaction processing to big data analytics and machine learning. This makes them an ideal solution for businesses that need to handle diverse data sets and workloads.

  • Improved Performance

Hyperscale elastic databases offer improved performance over traditional databases. They are designed to handle large-scale data processing and analytics, allowing businesses to analyze data in real-time and make informed decisions quickly. This can lead to increased efficiency and productivity, as well as improved customer experiences.


Supporting Data and Industry Insights

According to a report by Markets and Markets, the global hyperscale data center market is expected to grow from $25.08 billion in 2017 to $80.65 billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 26.32% during the forecast period. This growth is being driven by the increasing demand for cloud-based services and the need for scalable and flexible infrastructure.

In addition, a survey by IDG found that 90% of organizations are either already using cloud-based services or planning to do so in the near future. This demonstrates the growing popularity of cloud-based solutions, including hyperscale elastic databases.

Industry experts also recognize the benefits of hyperscale elastic databases. According to a report by Gartner, "by 2022, hyperscale cloud providers will offer DBaaS (Database as a Service) for mission-critical, high-performance, and highly available workloads, forcing incumbents to offer new pricing models or migrate their offerings to the cloud." This suggests that hyperscale elastic databases are becoming the norm in the industry and that traditional databases will need to adapt to keep up.


Hyperscale elastic databases offer numerous benefits to corporate entities, including scalability, cost savings, flexibility, and improved performance. As the demand for cloud-based services continues to grow, hyperscale elastic databases will become increasingly important for businesses looking to stay competitive. By adopting this technology, businesses can take advantage of the scalability and flexibility they need to handle the increasing volume of data.  When developing a cloud and business application corporate strategy it is essential to ensure that any cloud technology deployed is based on hyperscale technology and that any support business SaaS solutions should provide a hyperscale option with consumption-based pricing to deliver the cost saving value of this technology.
