The age of the public cloud is among us – AWS, Google Cloud, Microsoft Azure…they’re all offering cloud-based services hosted by a third-party provider and shared with other tenants. Using services on a public cloud allows companies to invest in their business technology without building expensive IT infrastructure, and offers easy scalability and support for company growth.
So, what does Hyperforce, Salesforce’s re-architected platform partnered with public clouds, have to offer?
Released in 2020, Hyperforce is the reimagined platform that allows Salesforce Customer 360 and the various Salesforce clouds to be delivered on major public clouds. The old ‘Tower Block’ multi-tenancy architecture of the Salesforce platform didn’t allow for balancing resources, and had limited capacity. By utilising public clouds, and the creation of Hyperforce, Salesforce can take advantage of not managing physical servers for data, and offer fast, safe, global deployment of Salesforce from anywhere in the world.
Let’s take a closer look at some of the features…
Rather than data being stored on physical servers, Hyperforce stores customer data in the region from which they subscribe to services. This means it offers built-in compliance with local regulations. So, if you’re deploying Salesforce in a new region, this takes away some of the hassle of complying with regional data laws.
Hyperforce is built on a zero trust architecture, meaning nobody inside or outside the organisation is trusted with customer data by default. Salesforce users are limited to appropriate access to data, so sensitive information is less vulnerable to human error. This gives an organisation, and their customers, peace of mind, and added security around their data.
All data is also encrypted, both at rest and in transit.
Using the public cloud to host infrastructure gives Salesforce customers more flexibility and scalability.
This is particularly useful when deploying Salesforce apps and services in new countries or regions. By deploying resources in the public cloud, implementation times for new regions can be greatly reduced, helping Salesforce customers scale quickly, and keep up with the current demands for digital transformation in business. By offering infrastructure as code, Developers can speed up their processes and create easily repeatable deployments.
By making use of the public cloud, the performance of the Salesforce platform excels. There are shorter routes between users and data centres, because this is now stored regionally, so in-country performance increases, offering a better user experience.
Due to the global infrastructure of Hyperforce, cloud workloads become more easily available. The platform uses a multi-availability zone distribution model, so if a failure occurs in one of the zones, cloud availability for your workloads won’t be affected.
Salesforce can launch innovations and new features much faster with Hyperforce. Salesforce customers receive a much better service and higher ROI on their Salesforce products, when they can access technology that drives business growth more quickly, and more frequently.
In terms of sustainability, all eyes are on businesses and organisations. Showing that they are taking their responsibility to offer sustainable services seriously is an important move. Hyperforce’s flexible infrastructure is built on 100% renewable energy, following Salesforce’s core values and ensuring that customers are playing their part in combatting climate change.
