A Data center is a facility that houses all network equipment necessary to managed servers. Location is everything for businesses in general and data centers aren´t the exception especially when they house vital equipment for other organizations; a data center´s location will directly impact the reliability of its services. This facility can be located almost everywhere, factors like quality and reliability of its infrastructure, operation costs, security issues as well as the risk of natural disaster and more is what makes it so important for data centers to be located in an adequate place.
Financially speaking a secure location provides an ease to data centers in general due to the significant amount of money they had to invest in building it. Weather and natural disaster are a major threat to data centers… rain, seismic activity and/or flooding can damage severely operations that can lead to bankruptcy. Skilled staff is another great plus for data centers as well as to be at a reachable area so customers and maintenance technicians can access the building at any time for fast responses to any issues. Location is very important for power and network accessibility; being close to a power station and feeds is a great benefit to ensure redundancy at your facility.
