What is a Data Center?
Data centers are centralized locations for a group of networked computer servers with access to large amounts of data. These servers are used for collecting, storing, processing, distributing or allowing access to data. In one form or another, data center have existed since the arrival of computers. Overtime, equipment became smaller and cheaper and data processing need increased. Eventually, we started networking multiple servers together to increase processing power. Then, servers are connected to communication networks so that people can access the information on them to some extent. Large amounts of these clustered servers and related equipment can be housed in a room, an entire building, or groups of buildings. Today, data centers have thousands of small and powerful servers running 24/7.
Data Center Services
Data centers have high concentrations of servers, so they are often referred to as server farms. They provide data storage, backup, recovery, data management, and networking. In addition, data centers store and serve websites. Meanwhile, they run e-mail, instant messaging services, provide cloud storage and applications. On top of that, they enable e-commerce transactions, power online gaming communities and much more.
Almost every business and government entity either needs its own data center or access to someone else’s. Some businesses build and maintain them in-house, while rent servers at co-location facilities. On the other hand, others use public cloud-based services at hosts like Amazon, Microsoft, Sony, and Google. The co-location facilities and the other huge data centers began to spring up in the late 1990s and early 2000s, sometime after internet usage went mainstream. Data centers of some bigger companies are spaced all over the planet to serve the constant need for access to massive amounts of information.
