Introduction


By: Sander Sassen

Not many people wonder about where their favorite websites are being served from, as that part of the process is usually not covered in as much detail. Granted we’ve recently given our readers a look behind the scenes at what kind of hardware is needed to run Hardware Analysis and what software we use to get the job done. But naturally there’s a lot more needed to keep a server up and running and unlike many people think, servers are usually not operated from someone’s basement but are stored away safely in datacenters around the world.

In essence datacenters offer ISPs or individual customers rackspace to install their servers in a rack and then connect to their carrier of choice. But there’s other things that need to be factored in, such as a good UPS installation, security and naturally a proper fire extinguisher installation to limit the damage in case of fire. We’ve recently taken a look at one of TeleCity’ datacenters in Amsterdam South-East, Holland and in the next few pages we’ll briefly detail why selecting a good datacenter can be Crucial to the uptime and security of your server.
