Open OEM Solving Information Technology's Complexity
Hyperscalers is the world's first open supply chain Original Equipment Manufacturer- OEM, solving Information Technology challenges through standardization of best practices and hyperscale inspired practices and efficiencies.
Hyperscalers offers choice across two open hardware architectures:
- Hyperscale - high efficiency open compute equipment as used by macro service providers
- Tier 1 Original – conventional equipment as per established Tier 1 OEM suppliers.
Each architecture is complete with network, compute, storage and converged GP GPU infrastructure elements, and is open / free from vendor lockin.
In contrast to the use of traditional OEM vendors’ hardware architectures that are locked down and non-interoperable by design, Hyperscalers customers are able to realize significant efficiencies and cost savings that are both immediate and ongoing.
20+ Software IP Appliances to choose from
Hyperscalers’ appliance solutions are packaged complete with hardware, software and pre-built (customisable) configurations. These were all pre-engineered using an in-house IP Appliance Design Process and validated in partnership with associated major software manufacturers. Many can be “test-driven” using Hyperscalers Lab as a Service (LaaS). Hyperscalers appliance solutions are ideally suited to IaaS PaaS and SaaS providers looking to implement their services from anywhere.

Next-Gen Open OEM that smashes-open the closed proprietary loop
The IBM / Intel PC architecture was once synonymous with open hardware standards, and provided an escape route from the deeply proprietary system architectures that existed beforehand.
More recently, household name OEM vendors have quietly since implemented a widespread and systematic lock down of every possible facet in their server, storage and network system ranges and even devices before being re-branded and on-sold to unsuspecting customers. Sadly, we have now come full circle in the proprietary cycle of evolution. It is the customer who bears the cost to support this supposed “value added work”, which is really just a new evolution of the same old proprietary lock-in. Clearly these practices are a regressive step for customers, who now find themselves exactly where they were twenty or thirty years ago, locked into a yellow brick road designed for them by their vendors.
A New Open x86 Supply Alternative Free of Lock-Ins
Hyperscalers is the world’s first OEM offering the full IT spectrum under a new open x86 supply alternative to the traditional locked vendors. Hyperscalers offers a direct procurement alternative to identical but expense multiplied, locked and re-branded hardware offered by lockin oriented vendors. The practical impacts of this are:
- Freedom from hardware lock-ins. When the time comes to upgrade RAM HDD or SSD or replace faulty parts like CPU or NIC (for example) you don't want to find yourself locked-in to any vendor.
- Free from software and firmware lock-ins. Situations change all the time. Having the ability to re-purpose an appliance with alternate software / firmware eliminates the risk of sunk costs.
In today’s fast paced and rapidly evolving product market, Digital-IP owners need to rapidly productize their ICT-appliance products for delivery into the conventional and hyperscale data centre context very quickly, reliably and at a fraction of historical costs.
Unfortunately the industry landscape is dominated by various competing interests of OEM vendors who have locked down their systems and components. This means that standardization and its inherent benefits are challenging to realise. In the absence of fully open supply chains, commercial and internal-IT service providers continue to travel down the path of implementing expensive, ad-hock engineered solutions.
Hyperscalers provides a solution to this problem through the IP Appliance Design Process. (find out more)
The Hyperscalers IP Appliance Design Process and associated Appliance Optimizer Utility work together to productize IT-appliances for Digital-IP owners needing to operationalise their services quickly, reliably and at a fraction of historical costs. Additionally, the resultant product solutions embody the Hyperscalers open supply chain philosophy, meaning that they become cheaper to own and operate over their operational lifetimes.
