An organization that intends to grow and flourish in any industry must appreciate the need to focus a majority of its manpower and resources on its core competencies which generate revenue and help it diversify. For this to happen, there is a need to make sure that all foundational operational and managerial tasks are properly aligned and executed smoothly. One of the aspects that are of great significance to attain the desired objectives is the storage, management, security, backup and recovery, and movement of data within and outside the company, something which depends entirely on how your organization’s data center works.
What is a modern data center and why is it important?
A data center, traditionally speaking, is a physical piece of infrastructure used by businesses to manage, store, and secure their data. Sometimes simply referred to as a Server Room, a data center is literally like the nerve center of an organization dependent on inflow and outflow of digital information and services. The major parts of a data center can include routers, firewalls, storage systems, dedicated servers, and applications – delivery controllers. Data Centers play a significant role in the day to day functioning of an organization as they facilitate applications and activities such as email and file sharing, Productivity Applications, Customer Relationship Management (CRM), and machine learning.
Types of Data Centers
As Information Technology has gone through many cycles of evolution, the infrastructure required to support the innovations has also developed organically. Experienced and competent IT services companies like I2K2 Networks provide four major kinds of Data Center Services.
1. Enterprise Data Centers
Enterprise Data Centers can be regarded as a fundamental form of Data Management Systems, as they are located in-house at corporate offices. They are built and designed for the sole purpose of use by a single organization which also manages the infrastructure.
2. Managed Services Data Centers
This particular model of a data center is managed, deployed, and monitored by a third party, which is usually a Managed Services Provider such as i2k2 Networks. The center may be partially or completely managed by the third party, which gives the end-user the flexibility to maintain a balance between internal security and delegation.
3. Colocation Data Centers
As the name suggests a “Colo” Data center is when an organization rents space in a data center owned by other providers and is not located on the business premises. The data center facilities provide the infrastructure, space, power, cooling and security for the servers and equipment to other firms with minimum expenses and management complexities.
4. Cloud Data Centers
A cloud data center is significantly different from a traditional data center as it is not located in any particular physical location. All data is entirely stored online. As there is no physical hardware, the installation and purchase costs as well as the maintenance staff expenses are significantly reduced. The Cloud solutions service providers also have several back ups of all data in case of an emergency.
