What is a data centre ?
A data center is a physical facility that organizations use to house their critical applications and data. A data center’s design is based on a network of computing and storage resources that enable the delivery of shared applications and data. The key components of a data center design include routers, switches, firewalls, storage systems, servers, and application-delivery controllers.
Big companies are now gradually emphasizing on building people’s data centres. A data centre is a place where data storage as well as processing of information is done, the responsibility of transporting it from one place to another also comes under it.
A large number of servers are established in these centres, data is processed and the information is kept safe within. If any data is needed by any particular company, then they are provided that.
