Building Blocks of Cloud Computing : Data Centre

Data Centre is fundamental in the cloud computing context and is pivotal both for service providers and end user. For service providers data centre is the infrastructure that they need to build and maintain and for end users it the source of all applications ( SaaS) and home of all their data.

Wikipedia defines " A data center or data centre or computer centre (also datacenter or datacentre) is a facility used to house computer systems and associated components, such as telecommunications and storage systems. It generally includes redundant or backup power supplies, redundant data communications connections, environmental controls (e.g., air conditioning, fire suppression) and security devices.

Given the importance of data centre in the context of cloud computing, here is separate blog dedicated to the topic of data centre. It covers trends, basics, books and a custom search engine.
