Data Center Infrastructure
A data center is a facility that centralizes an organization's IT operations and equipment, as well as where it stores, manages, and disseminates its data. Data centers house a network's most critical systems and are vital to the continuity of daily operations.
Data center hardware is the collective IT and other hardware components that make up the entire data center infrastructure. It is a term that collectively defines and includes functional and non-functional hardware devices and equipment necessary for the operations of a data center.
Here we refer to the Data center infrastructure as the core physical or hardware-based resources and components – including all IT infrastructure devices, equipment and technologies – that comprise a data center. It is modeled and identified in a design plan that includes a complete listing of necessary infrastructure components used to create a data center.
A data center infrastructure may include:
- Networking equipment, such as routers or switches
- Security, such as firewall or biometric security system
- Storage, such as storage area network (SAN) or backup/tape storage
- Data center management software/applications
It can also include non-computing resources, such as:
- Power and cooling devices, such as air conditioners or generators
- Physical server racks/chassis
- Internet backbone
