What is a Datacenter?
A Datacenter which is also known as a data processing center (DPC), is the focal point of computer systems of a company or organization, like for example the telecommunication systems or storage systems besides a guarantee of redundant energy independence, thus avoiding loss of information. Designed to be extremely secure, harbours thousands of servers and data storage banks, processing large amounts of information. Installed in protected places against fire extinguishing systems, intelligent smoke detection systems and fire extinguishing with inert gas, so as not to affect the equipment. The access is controlled by electronic cards and/or biometry, permanent monitoring, access through a sluice gate, precision air conditioning with constant monitoring to keep the temperature constant. The operational environment is monitored permanently in all aspects- physical and logical. All this guarantees the reliability, consistency and security that organizations require for the storage of their data.
