The introduction of Hyperforce is one of those revolutionary milestones for Salesforce customers. That’s because migrating to Hyperforce is going to give Salesforce customers options when it comes to storing their Salesforce data.
If you’re a Salesforce customer, then you likely store Salesforce data in one of the company’s massive data storage centers. With Hyperforce, Salesforce customers can store their data in public cloud storage centers.
This is huge for companies that operate globally as well as ones in highly regulated industries like financial services and healthcare. That’s because it’ll be easier to store data locally and comply with regulations surrounding data storage in countries around the world.
What is Hyperforce?
First introduced in 2020, Salesforce reimagined its platform architecture for the public cloud with the introduction of Hyperforce. It’s code-based rather than hardware-focused infrastructure that allows more agility within the platform.
The Customer 360 platform can live on top of Hyperforce, and Salesforce customers will store their data in public clouds like Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Cloud, and Microsoft Azure, inside onsite servers, or within Salesforce data storage warehouses.
Migrating to Hyperforce
So, why is Salesforce having all customers move to Hyperforce? Well, for one thing, it’s a modernization of the platform to meet changing data demands.
Salesforce will continue to maintain data warehouses they own to use when needed, but moving data to public cloud infrastructure is the most logical way forward. Imagine having better compliance capabilities, top-notch security, ultimate agility, and the power to scale up like a superhero.
Salesforce is all about respecting your privacy, too. So with Hyperforce, they’ve got your back.

How do I know it’s time for me to migrate to Hyperforce?
Currently, there is no publicly available migration schedule for Hyperforce, Salesforce is ‘regularly moving customers to balance our workload and modernize our systems.’
Admins of orgs scheduled to migrate will be notified via a Salesforce Product and Service notification, approximately two months and then one month before their migration date. In the meantime, you can check in with your account team to find out when you can expect to receive a notification that it’s time to migrate to Hyperforce.
