What Does The Future Look Like for Hyperscales & Managed Services?

These days, almost all businesses are hyperscalers. In fact, if you had told a retailer in the 1960s they’d be giving the public access to processing power and storage on a pay-per-use model that rivals IBM’s mainframes of the same period, they would have laughed at you. Although we can’t quite say times have changed that much, it’s certainly easier to see how we are heading towards an era where your business will literally be as big as the cloud.

What is a Hyperscale?

The term hyperscale isn’t something that is widely used in the industry. In fact, we have only seen it being used in the past 2-3 years. Hyperscale was initially a term that was used to describe companies that had hundreds of thousands or even millions of servers in their data centre. These companies typically fall under the umbrella of the internet.

This is not the case anymore. Now, hyperscale is used to describe any company with a high volume of computing power to serve its customers. We’ve already seen some examples, such as AT&T, Netflix, Microsoft, Google and many more. What is more interesting is the fact that these hyperscalers are contenders in their respective markets, and they are doing quite well.

What is Managed Services?

This is where a company handles another company’s IT operations and does it for a fee. When it comes to Managed Service Provider (MSP) networks and cloud services, a certain amount of synergy happens when you have your own cloud infrastructure in place.

Managed services providers have been running on the cloud for a long time. Most have cloud-based infrastructure in place, which makes it easier for them to transition to enterprise IT services.

The Future of Hyperscale & Managed Services

Currently, hyperscalers and managed services providers run cloud-based businesses that developers and small businesses use. The managed services options available today focus on the business’s infrastructure and security side. However, as the technology evolves, cloud-based services are becoming much more enterprise-focused.

For instance, cloud-based computing services offer a wide range of computing, networking and storage options. These services offer the option of running cloud servers on the same equipment that the hyperscaler uses to power its own online operations.

As a business owner, it’s a smart move to take advantage of hyperscale. In the new few years, there will be an increase in the number of companies that will operate across multiple clouds and data centres. Therefore, there will be a bigger demand for tools and software to reconcile complex ecosystems of physical and virtual platforms. Therefore, the best approach to this is to hire the best consultants who can implement an end-to-end approach that will allow businesses to maximise their cloud value.

The Best of Both Worlds

The best option is to leverage the benefits of both hyperscaler and managed services, to power your business’s technology infrastructure. With a combination of a hyperscaler and managed services, your business can scale as needed to accommodate your business’s computing needs.
