Data Centres


What is a Data Centre?

Data Centres are often referred to as a singular thing, but they are composed of several technical elements. These can be broken down into three categories:


Computer: The memory and processing power to run the applications, generally provided by high-end servers 

Storage: Important enterprise data is generally housed in a Data Centre, on media ranging from tape to solid- state drives, with multiple backups

Networking: Interconnections between Data Centre components and to the outside world, including routers, switches, application-delivery controllers, and more These are the components that IT needs to store and manage the most critical resources that are vital to the continuous operations of an organisation. Because of this, the reliability, efficiency, security, and constant evolution of Data Centres are typically a top priority. Both software and hardware security measures are a must.
