Data Center

A data center is a facility that houses an organization's IT operations and equipment, such as servers, routers, switches, and firewalls, usually offering additional protection such as backup equipment, cooling, fire suppression, and biometric security. Data centers may be private or shared, and can be large, dedicated buildings or simply a room housing a few servers.
