What is a Datacenter?
« on: 02-29-2012, 03:16:19 »
Datacenter is a globally distributed collection of redundant server infrastructure which hosts all internet related domain names, hosting Products and Services. VishalHost have pioneered the concept of a globally distributed Datacenter.

Salient features of a Datacenter
•   Integrates hundreds of distributed servers seamlessly
•   Provides high-availability, redundancy and unmatched reliability

Details of a Datacenter:

A Datacenter consists of servers distributed across various Datacenters worldwide. Most of these datacenters have certain common qualifications described below –


The datacenters are connected to the internet through Gigabit Ethernet connections from separate backbone providers, who each run fiber optic cables into the data center through separate entry points.


To guard against line failure or intrusion, the data center is staffed 24 hours a day. Movement throughout the facility is escorted at ALL times. There is 24x7 closed circuit monitoring of all areas and entrances. Between the cameras, access control, and the security team, the datacenter facilities are pretty secure.


The total incoming power is a multiple of what is required to run the datacenter. There is an ATS (Automatic Transfer switch) in place to automatically kick in a generator in case of a power failure. The datacenters are also equipped with redundant UPS systems to ensure clean power.


Redundant A/C systems, each running at a fraction of their capacity, keep the server rooms cool. The units are alternated so that each one is kept in optimal condition.

Advanced Smoke Detection & Fire Protection Systems:

The datacenters are equipped with specialized fire detection and protection systems meant specifically for protecting servers as using ordinary water based systems would cause just as much damage as fire.

Why use a Vishalhost.com Datacenter?

Scalability & Reliability:

Vishalhost Datacenter consists of a complex mesh of global servers that interact with each other. The entire architecture is built upon common principles of High-Availability, Clustering and n+1 Architecture. This allows us to scale our solutions to match your exponential growth by simply adding infrastructure and linking it to this architecture. You are abstracted from worrying about variables such as scalability, uptime, network response etc

Global Reach:

The datacenters of vishalhost.com and their partners have invested in infrastructure deployments at various locations globally. Anyone can now leverage upon this global infrastructure and offer a completely global experience to their Customers without any investments. Vishalhost handles the selection, negotiation and relationship management with Infrastructure providers around the world.

White Labeled Architecture:

The Datacenter at vishalhost.com are a cluster of globally distributed redundant servers of various different operating systems to provide Customers and Resellers with myriad web hosting options. The servers and IP addresses are white-labeled and cannot be traced back to us. If you are one of Vishalhost Resellers, then the name servers used for any services hosted on these servers would be your branded Name Servers. So for all practical purposes these clusters of hundreds of servers would appear as YOUR servers to your Customers.

A data center is a premises where the servers stores the data, a room with complete security for the servers as well as environmental considerations such as cooling requirements. A data center is also called as lights out server room that contains lock and key which is kept in the dark. It generally includes redundant or backup power supplies, redundant data communications connections, environmental controls (e.g., air conditioning, fire suppression) and security devices.

A Data Center is also called as Server Farm used to house computer systems and associated components, such as telecommunications and storage systems.

A data center (sometimes spelled datacenter) is a centralized repository, either physical or virtual, for the storage, management, and dissemination of data and information organized around a particular body of knowledge or pertaining to a particular business.
