Hyperscale storage is typically implemented in environments that require storage media that can be flexibly scaled at runtime or on demand to a virtually indefinite capacity. Generally, hyperscale storage is a progression of conventional enterprise storage, which was usually limited to only terabytes of data. The primary objective of hyperscale storage is to provision a humongous raw storage pool, which is entirely or mostly managed using purpose-built storage management software.
Hyperscale storage is generally implemented in IT environments with large data requirements, such as big data repositories, cloud computing infrastructures, social media networks, government agencies and the Internet.
