Salesforce deploys public cloud-based Hyperforce platform in the Middle East
New offering capitalises on public cloud scale and agility
Salesforce – the San Francisco, California-headquartered company that specialises in AI, data and CRM solutions for sales, customer service, marketing automation, e-commerce, analytics, and application development – has launched Hyperforce, a secure, scalable, and reliable foundation for AI applications, for the Middle East region, commencing with the UAE.
In association with Amazon Web Services (AWS) and with all-new data storage in the UAE, Hyperforce represents a complete re-architecture of Salesforce and is designed to deliver an even more powerful and scalable platform to support the growth and success of Salesforce’s global customer base.
Hyperforce empowers customers to deploy Salesforce’s apps and services securely from anywhere while benefitting from the scale and agility of the public cloud.
In particular, Hyperforce gives customers new options to store data in-country, which is critical for customers to stay ahead of evolving privacy regulations and an increased emphasis on data security and residency. Customers also gain trust, security, and confidence to innovate with AI.
