A Data Centre or Hosting facility is used to house network as well as computing infrastructure as well as to provide carrier / operator interconnectivity. It generally includes higher level security as well as redundant or backup power supplies, redundant data communications connections and HVAC environmental controls.
Data Centre's are often referred to as Primary or the primary host of the infrastructure and redundant or secondary mirror of the infrastructure. A secondary host of the infrastructure is generally chosen in a different geographic location to provide for disaster recovery and business continuity in the event of failure of the primary site such as utility failure or natural disaster.
Organisations may host their own data centre but there is a huge market growth in outsourcing in either co-location or hosting within purpose built facilities as the costs of building and managing a data centre are very high.
Co-location is a term used to describe client owned infrastructure located within a shared facility and hosting is used to describe a clients instance hosted on a service providers shared infrastructure.
The simplest Data Centre is a Tier 1 data centre or basically a server room. The highest level is a Tier 4 data centre, which is designed to host mission critical computer systems, with fully redundant systems, fire protection and security controlled by biometric access control.
Energy use is a central issue for data centres. Power draw for data centres ranges from a few kW for a rack of servers in a closet to several tens of MW for large facilities and the choice of location of global data centres is largely being influenced by the cost of power.
