What Is Data Centre Infrastructure?
Data centre infrastructure is the hardware and software used to support the function of data centres. The term usually refers to the physical data centres environment, including the power, cooling and cabling systems needed to keep equipment operational. Data centre infrastructure solutions providers offer products and data centres services that help organisations to design, build, operate and manage their data centres more effectively.
Types of Data Centre Solutions
Data centre infrastructure solutions can be broadly divided into three main categories:
1. Data Centre Design and Construction Solutions
Data centres design and construction solutions providers offer a range of services to help organisations plan, build and commission new data centre facilities. This can include everything from feasibility studies and capacity planning to full turnkey design and build services.
2. Data Centre Facilities Management Solutions
Data centre facilities management solutions providers offer a range of products and data centre services to help organisations operate their data centres more effectively. This can include anything from energy management and monitoring systems to heat containment solutions and cooling optimization services.
3. Data Centre Infrastructure Management Solutions
Data centre infrastructure management solutions providers offer a range of products and services to help organisations manage their data centres environments more effectively. This can include anything from server virtualization and consolidation solutions to network monitoring and security solutions.
The tower server is a type of server design that gets its name from its tall, vertical chassis. Tower servers are designed to be placed on the floor and can be easily expanded by adding more disk drives, memory or other types of expansion cards. Some Tower Servers can also be rack mounted.
A rack server is a type of server that gets its name from the fact that it is designed to be mounted in a 19-inch frame or “rack”. Rack servers are usually much thinner than tower servers and take up less space, making them ideal for data centres where space is at a premium.
A blade server is a specialised type of server that gets its name from the fact that it uses long “blades” that can be inserted into a “blade chassis”. Blade servers are designed to be very compact and take up less space than traditional rack or tower servers.
Storage for the Intelligence Era.
Flash storage is a type of solid-state storage that uses flash memory to store data. Flash storage is faster than traditional hard drives and can be used in a variety of applications, such as boot drives, primary storage drives and cache drives. Flash storage is a data storage technology based on high-speed, electrically programmable memory, hence its name.
Spindle storage is a type of data storage that uses spinning disks, or platters, to store data. Spindle storage is the most common type of data storage and is used in a variety of applications, such as hard drives, optical drives and tape drives. The main advantage of spindle storage over flash storage is its lower cost.
Hybrid storage is a type of data storage that combines the benefits of both flash storage and spindle storage. Hybrid storage is faster than spindle storage and can be used in a variety of applications, such as hard drives, optical drives and tape drives. The main advantage of hybrid storage over flash or spindle storage is its lower cost.
