Data Centers

0 Comments Posted by Kevin

Large data centers are industrial in scale and can use as much power as a small town.


This facility has allowed zero minutes of downtime a year for the last 8 straight years. Massive computer systems and servers are housed here. This particular data center has robust infrastructure to maintain the level of climate control, power, and data communications necessary for modern needs. Rooms of lead batteries and a bank of V-16 diesel electric generators allow the entire building to operate independently in the event of a power outage. These systems are implemented on a regular schedule to address and fix any weaknesses. The amount of capital invested in data centers of this magnitude is astounding. As the internet becomes more and more of a commodity these commercial storage operations are also sure to grow in value to investors.
