    Data Center facilities include

    In-house Facilities


    An organization can have in-house facilities where they can design, build and operate a data center in their own premises. There is no involvement of a third party because the organization takes it on them to provide the necessary requirements to run their operations. An experienced IT team is necessary to maintain a complex data center architecture.

    Colocation Facilities

    Colocation facilities are provided by a third party and are the exact opposite of in-house facilities because they are multi-tenant accessible. Multiple businesses can choose to house their equipment in third-party data centers. Customers can choose solutions which are specific to their business when buying colocation facilities.

    Dedicated Hosting

    In a dedicated hosting solution, customers have full control over the server allocated to them. The server and storage is completely dedicated to one customer or one business for a single purpose. The customer manages all the hardware himself and maintains the equipment without sharing it with any other customers.

    Managed Hosting

    Managed hosting is similar to dedicated hosting as it falls under similar conventions but provides an additional set of features to customers who use their servers. The additional services include database and system administration, managed security, system monitoring, application management services and much more. The hardware may be owned by the provider or the customer but the management of those servers is the responsibility of the provider and not the customer.

    Shared Hosting

    In a shared hosting environment, the customer shares the server as it acts as a host to multiple clients or businesses. The shared hosting includes the sharing of the applications and software within the physical server. The hosting provider deploys an interface which allows multiple customers to customize their services according to their business needs. Shared hosting is cost-efficient because there is no need to employ technical staff to manage your website and also the cost of the server is shared.

    If you have a big business and have a lot of personal data, then it’s important to have your own data center.

    Typically you will go with a data center due to quite a few features that your normal office or house isn't able to provide you with.

    This doesn't go for all data centers as there are different tiers however below are some key features you should look for.

    1. Security, a good data center will have security on site, monitored 24/7 with cameras, biometrics, facial recognition, restrict access using key cards which logs who and when went into which room, along with not letting you into rooms you shouldn't be in.

    2. Redundant power, this would include large UPS's that can keep everything in the building online for at least a few minutes to prevent any downtime while everything switches onto generators. This should have two sets one for A and one for B.

    3. Proper cooling, a data center will have proper cooling to prevent equipment from overheating, it will also make sure that it has a stable humidity level on there. Typically this is done using a hot and cold isle. So the servers intake the cold air and exit the back into the hot air row.

    4. Bandwidth/Network most data centers will have multiple network providers with redundant fiber lines into the data center this can prevent downtime if a line is cut etc.
