Salesforce, a cloud-based platform, offers various tools and services for businesses to manage their data and operations. Recently, they introduced Hyperforce, which aims to revolutionize platform usage. The success of this cloud-based software due to the development of technologies and the growing customer demands. However, storing information from thousands of companies in its own data centers had become insufficient.
A digital transformation is imperative in today’s market, and Salesforce has been quick in satisfying automation requests from its customers. To support the rapid growth of its clients’ businesses, Salesforce recognized the potential of the public cloud as the most efficient solution. Consequently, they announced Hyperforce, the public cloud architecture that allowed them to reach new geographies. In this blog, we will explore what Hyperforce is and how it functions.
What is Salesforce Hyperforce?
Salesforce Hyperforce represents a new paradigm for the platform’s infrastructure architecture, specifically designed for the public cloud. Unlike hardware-based infrastructure, Hyperforce offers code-based solutions, enabling rapid and reliable deployment of Salesforce and its applications worldwide. A key advantage of Hyperforce is granting customers control over data residency.
In mid-2022, Salesforce introduced Marketing Cloud Engagement on the Hyperforce, empowering its customers to build trusted relationships with their clients.
Salesforce has undergone a comprehensive re-architecture in order to provide an even more robust. Altogether, scalable platform to support the expansion of its global customer base. With the size and agility of the public cloud, Hyperforce is empowering to securely deploy Salesforce apps and services from any location. It allows for the current and potential Salesforce customers to use public cloud infrastructure. One of Hyperforce’s biggest benefits is that it is 100% backward friendly. It is going to change the game rules for many Salesforce customers and will be making digital transformation easy.
How does Hyperforce work?
Hyperforce utilizes a microservices architecture, enabling Salesforce to distribute its services across multiple cloud providers. This approach allows seamless hosting of various components of the Salesforce platform, like the database, and user interface, on different clouds.
Salesforce Hyperforce uses a range of technologies, including Kubernetes for container orchestration, Istio for service mesh, and Apache Kafka for messaging. These technologies allow Salesforce to manage the deployment, scaling, and connectivity of its services across multiple clouds, while also ensuring high availability and fault tolerance.
In addition, it includes a range of security features to protect customer data and ensure compliance with industry standards. These features include data encryption, access controls, and audit trails, as well as compliance certifications.
Why Salesforce Hyperforce?
Salesforce’s shared infrastructure has known limits when it comes to storing a lot of data or running large and complex computations. Before the launch of Hyperforce, each Salesforce instance had to be kept in a Salesforce data center. As a Salesforce customer you can now use public cloud infrastructure to store your Salesforce instances. Existing and potential Salesforce customers now have the option to choose the location of their Software instance. Companies in industries such as Banking, Finance, Insurance, Telecommunication and Government – who have data residency requirements based on country can now rely on Salesforce. This was very much required as Salesforce Competitors like Oracle and Microsoft were already offering such services.
Organizations can install Salesforce Hyperforce cloud infrastructure of your choice. You will have complete control over where your Salesforce data is stored with Hyperforce, helping you meet requirements business, or region. A Salesforce Hyperforce ORG will work similar to all other instances. With security updates and big releases – the integrations and apps will still be backwards compatible.
What are the benefits of Hyperforce?
Hyperforce offers a range of benefits for customers, including:
Greater Flexibility: With Hyperforce, customers can choose to run Salesforce on the public cloud of their choice, rather than on Salesforce’s own infrastructure. This gives customers greater flexibility to choose the cloud provider that best meets their needs in terms of performance, cost, and compliance. Improved Performance: By leveraging the compute power and data storage of public clouds, Hyperforce can improve the performance and scalability of the Salesforce platform, particularly for large-scale deployments and data-intensive applications. Enhanced Security: Hyperforce includes a range of security features designed to protect customer data and ensure compliance with industry standards and regulations. This gives customers greater peace of mind when using the Salesforce platform. Future-proofing: Designed to support new innovations and capabilities, such as artificial intelligence and machine learning, and data storage. This means that customers can future-proof their Salesforce deployments and take advantage of new technologies as they emerge.
In conclusion, a new architecture for Salesforce that offers customers greater flexibility, scalability, and resilience, while also improving the performance. By leveraging public cloud infrastructure providers, enables to support new innovations and capabilities.

Salesforce Hyperforce Architecture
“Wait! Even before we dive into that, what if I told you that
Per-transaction limit enhancements:
SOQL limit increased from 100 to 300
DML limit increased from 150 to 450
Apex Static limit expansions:
Synchronous Apex limit increased from 6 MB to 10 MB
Asynchronous Apex limit increased from 12 MB to 20 MB
Such enhancements would bring immense joy to 90% of Salesforce developers worldwide. As a tech dreamer, I see these changes on the horizon, given the evolving nature of Salesforce.
The architecture of Salesforce Hyperforce is based on five key Architectural Principles:
Immutable Infrastructure: Hyperforce’s flexible infrastructure is immutable, meaning it cannot be changed once deployed. This makes it more secure and reliable, as there is no risk of changes introducing vulnerabilities.
Multi-Availability-Zone Design: Hyperforce regions are deployed across multiple availability zones (AZs), which are isolated geographic locations within a cloud provider’s data centre. This ensures that if there is a failure in one AZ, the system will continue to operate in the other AZs.
Zero Trust Approach to Security: Hyperforce further uses a zero-trust approach to security,no one is trusted by default. All-access to the system is strictly controlled, and all traffic is encrypted.
Infrastructure-As-Code: Hyperforce infrastructure is defined and managed as code. This makes it easier to deploy, manage, and update the infrastructure.
Clean Slate: Hyperforce is moreover built on a clean slate, not based on Salesforce’s previous infrastructure. This allows Salesforce to implement the latest cloud technologies and security best practices.
In addition to these five key architectural principles, Hyperforce also features a number of other capabilities, such as:
Firstly, Global scalability.
Hyperforce Compatibility and Integrations
Backward compatibility: Meanwhile, backwards compatible with existing Salesforce applications and integrations, ensuring most Salesforce apps, customizations, and integrations will continue to work without changes.
Considerations for migration:
Integration updates: Some integrations may require updates to function properly on Hyperforce, such as adjusting IP addresses used for a connection.
Customization modifications: Certain customizations relying on deprecated features may need to be modified to utilize the new features available on Hyperforce.
Data migration: If migrating from a different platform, data migration to Hyperforce may be necessary.
Supported apps: All Salesforce apps, including Sales Cloud, Service Cloud, Marketing Cloud, and Commerce Cloud, supported on Hyperforce.
Supported customizations: Most Salesforce customizations supported on Hyperforce, though some may require updates.
Supported integrations: Hyperforce supports most Salesforce integrations, but some may need updates to ensure proper functionality.
Implementing Salesforce Hyperforce With Hyperforce ;
your Salesforce data storage and computing requirements are no longer restricted by the well-known boundaries of a typical Salesforce ORG. Now using your own cloud or IT provider, you can scale up your gear and compute power. We expect that large-scale and fast-growing businesses will greatly benefit from Salesforce Hyperforce.
How does a company move to Hyperforce?
Similar to migration when an org split occurs (moving from one server platform to another), migration to Hyperforce works similarly, with checklists and planning. There is a small window of downtime during migration, and then the rest is seamless. You may need to upgrade some data and processes ahead of time, but that is a good practice anyway. Once migrated, there is transparency in where your data is.
Advantages for Customers
Salesforce can concentrate on providing products and services that the customer can see, while cloud providers handle innovation at the infrastructure level. There is no cost to migrate to Hyperforce.No new storage options available, but these will be incorporated in the future. Hyperforce has mission-critical availability. Instead of primary and secondary redundancies, Hyperforce operates over three availability zones. The most significant advantage to customers is in performance and capacity. As you are closer to the data, there is less latency and optimal performance. Whether you need ample or low-grade data storage, Hyperforce will accommodate your needs without negatively impacting your use of cases or integrations of functions.
