What is hyperscale
Hyperscale refers to the complete mix of hardware and facilities that can scale a distributed computing environment up to thousands of servers.

As its name implies, hyperscale is all about achieving massive scale in computing — typically for purposes of big data or cloud computing. Hyperscale infrastructure is designed for horizontal scalability that leads to high levels of performance, throughput, and redundancy to enable fault tolerance and high availability. Hyperscale computing often relies on massively scalable server architectures and virtual networking
There are many reasons why an organization might adopt hyperscale computing. Hyperscale may offer the best, or only way to realize a specific business goal like providing cloud computing services. Generally, though, hyperscale solutions deliver the most cost-effective approach to addressing a demanding set of requirements. For example, a big data analytics project might be most economically addressed through the scale and computing density available in hyperscale.
The HPE Apollo high-density server family is the HPE solution for hyperscale computing. Each Apollo high-density server is built for the highest levels of performance and efficiency. Being density-optimized, the Apollo family enables organizations to achieve hyperscale within relatively small physical facilities. They offer a tiered approach to hyperscale.
