What are data centers and how do they operate?
What expertise goes into managing data centers across the world? Are there particular guidelines for every data centre to follow regardless of which country is hosting the data centre? If I want to build a data center what things must I consider carefully before embarking on such a monumental project?
How to Build, Configure and Operate Data Centers
A data center is a centralized storage or repository which can be either virtual or physical. It is used for management, distribution, and storage of data and information. It is a facility that centralizes the I.T. operations and equipment of a company or an organization including the storage, dissemination, and management of data.
It encloses a network’s most vital systems and important to the stability of daily operations. One example of a data center is the NCDC or the National Climatic Data Center. It is a public data center that keeps the world’s biggest records of weather information. It is possible to maintain a private data center within a specialized facility or within the facilities of an organization.
