The heart of the IT infrastructure

Modern data centers have evolved enormously in recent years and place high demands on IT. Companies need future-proof solutions for rapidly growing data volumes and at the same time have a high demand for resources. In addition, the requirements for data security (DSGVO) and availability are constantly increasing.

Internal IT departments are increasingly reaching their limits due to the growing demands. However, the performance of IT operations has a decisive influence on competitiveness and the service that companies can offer their customers.

One solution is offered by cloud computing providers, who offer many IT services “on demand”. The cloud includes flexible solutions when it comes to IT infrastructure, computing power and resources. This diversity allows companies more room for individual solutions and increases the flexibility and scalability of all services.

For companies, a holistic data center strategy is therefore becoming increasingly relevant. With byterunner, you can concentrate on your core business. Because we take care of your IT.

What are the different types of data centers?

In a classic data center, the operator and user of the data center are identical. The data center can be located within the enterprise or at an off-site location. Often, enterprise data centers have subordinate data centers located at different sites to support key functions of the enterprise.

Building data centers within an enterprise requires high capital investment, regular maintenance, and time and technical expertise

Cloud data centers are now among the most popular data centers and are suitable for almost every company. They enable secure and flexible IT operations that enable agile working. It is a virtual data center that is operated and managed by a cloud service provider.

Cloud data centers can be divided into public and private clouds. While public cloud providers such as Microsoft Azure offer resources over the Internet, private cloud providers give their customers access to customized private clouds.

Compared to physical data centers, cloud data centers offer many advantages. For example, their use is cost-effective and free of maintenance requirements. Their services are also easy to scale and offer companies a high degree of flexibility.

With a managed data center, companies can rent computers, data storage and other related services from a third-party provider. The data center operator owns the equipment, programs and basic software provided. It also handles the maintenance and security of the equipment and provides regular updates.

Often, cloud or colocation providers offer managed services for their data centers. A managed data center can be either partially or fully managed by the provider.

Colocation data centers are also an attractive option for companies that cannot or do not want to operate their own data centers. Instead, they pay a provider to house their computing technology. Unlike Managed Datacenter, however, they only pay for the space – the hardware is provided by the company itself.

Edge data centers are smaller facilities that are located closer to the customers a company serves. Edge data centers enable faster local service by bringing compute closer to systems that generate data. Typically, edge data centers are connected to a centralized, traditional data center.
