Introduced in 2020, Salesforce Hyperforce is a cloud-native architecture that boosts customer agility using the public cloud.
Growing with your requirements and ensuring secure, in-country data storage, its flexible infrastructure is complemented by easy maintenance for your custom apps and Salesforce integrations due to backward compatibility.
This design aims to provide customers with a more powerful and easily scalable platform. In this updated scenario, Salesforce no longer manages physical resources.
A public cloud is a computing infrastructure owned and operated by a cloud service provider like Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, or Google Cloud Platform.
In the past, Salesforce hosted customers’ instances on its own infrastructure, referred to as Salesforce Infrastructure. However, with Hyperforce, organizations now have the option to run their Salesforce instances on a public cloud infrastructure of their choice.
This provides more control over the location where their data is stored and processed.
Hyperforce allows you the flexibility to select from an expanding range of global regions to host your Salesforce organization. This empowers you with increased options and control over data residency.
Salesforce Customer 360 on Hyperforce is currently available in US and Germany. To utilize the Salesforce Customer 360 application suite on Hyperforce in Switzerland and the United Arab Emirates, you must request access.
