Types Of Data Centers Corporate Vs Internet

In today’ hypercompetitive business environment the success of a business enterprise depends largely on its capability to conduct business round the clock. And for that to happen it is highly necessary that the data, which is the lifeblood of every organization, is transported successfully without any loss, disruption or breach. Studies show that each second more than 3 trillion bits of data is created. In such a scenario, to manage this pool of data what is required is a robust specialized facility housing highly specialized equipments not only for storing and processing the mission critical data but also for the uninterrupted transmission of it to the right person at the right time. Thus, data center plays a proactive role in the smooth functioning of any enterprise or organization.

Data centre or data center can be defined as a facility that houses the computer systems, data storage systems, telecommunications, data connectivity, equipment housing and support, electrical power distribution, backup power systems, environmental systems, fire suppression systems and security systems. A carefully maintained datacenter can facilitate smooth IT operations by ensuring uninterrupted business continuity.
