Hyperscale is the ability of a technology architecture to improve and scale appropriately as more demand is added to the system. This includes the ability to provide and add more resources to the system that make up a bigger distributed computing network. Hyperscale is also crucial to construct a strong and scalable distributed system. Moreover, it is the combination of virtualization, storage, and compute layers of an infrastructure into a single solution architecture.
Hyperscale offers the best way to realize a specific business goal like big data analytics projects and cloud computing systems. The main reason why an organization might decide to adopt hyperscale computing is that many hyperscale solutions are delivering the most cost-effective approach to a demanding set of requirements. For example, a big data project might be most proficiently addressed through computing density available in hyperscale. Rapid deployment and automated management capabilities make scaling out simple and hassle free for businesses of all sizes. By tightly integrating networking and compute resources in a software-defined system, we can fully utilize all hardware resources available to us. By orchestrating your resources in an innovative way, you get much more from what you already have. It is taking what you have and giving it superpowers combined with the ability to grow on demand.
Unlike a traditional large data center architecture, hyperscale data centers are built on three important and unique concepts:
Implementing hyperscale computing solutions gives its users the benefit of an exceptionally low-cost investment as a system with low configuration that runs a base level of virtual machines in a chosen and private system. In addition, hyperscale computing architecture works productively in large-scale usage, where thousands of virtual machines are being used.
Check Point introduced Check Point Maestro to the market, the industry’s first truly Hyperscale network security solution. Check Point Maestro is a revolutionary new architecture that enables businesses of any size to enjoy the power of flexible cloud-level security platforms, and to seamlessly expand their existing security gateways to Hyperscale capacity.
Check Point Maestro brings scalability, agility and elasticity of the cloud on premise with efficient N+1 clustering based on Check Point HyperSync technology, maximizing the capabilities of your existing security gateways. Create your own virtualized private-cloud premise by stacking multiple Check Point security gateways together. Group them by security feature set, policy, or the assets they protect and further virtualize them with virtual systems technology. With the Maestro Hyperscale Orchestrator, businesses of all sizes can have cloud-level security on premise. Add compute to meet your needs using Maestro Web UI or RESTful APIs – all while minimizing the risk of downtime and maximizing your cost-efficiency.
With Check Point Maestro, organizations can easily scale up their existing Check Point security gateways on demand, in the same way as spinning up new servers and compute resources in public clouds. Maestro enables a single gateway to expand to the capacity and performance of 52 gateways in minutes, giving companies elastic flexibility and enabling massive Terabit/second firewall throughput. This almost limitless scalability enables organizations to support 5G networks’ high data rates and ultra-low latency, and secure the largest, most resource-hungry environments, setting new standards in Hyperscale network security. Check Point Maestro extends the Gen V security capabilities of our Infinity architecture into Hyperscale environments.
