Data centers are simply centralized locations where computing and networking equipment is concentrated for the purpose of collecting, storing, processing, distributing or allowing access to large amounts of data. They have existed in one form or another since the advent of computers. As the number of computer user increased drastically over time networking multiple servers the industrial counterparts to our home computer together to increase processing power began. At data centers we connect them to communication networks so that people can access them, or the information on them, remotely. Large numbers of these clustered servers and related equipment can be housed in an entire building or groups of buildings. Today's data center is likely to have thousands of very powerful and very small servers running 24/7. Because of the high concentrations of servers, often stacked in racks that are placed in rows, data centers are sometimes referred to a server farms. They provide important services such as data storage, backup and recovery, data management and networking.
These centers can store and serve up Web sites, run e-mail and instant messaging services, provide cloud storage and applications, enable e-commerce transactions, power online gaming communities and do a host of other things.
