As we know, cloud computing is all about storing and retrieving data from an area on the Internet. Unlike the hard drive on your computer, this method allows the user to access this data from any location, on any device, at any time. One thing not often contemplated is where the device with the information is stored. Companies that offer Cloud services still need huge servers dedicated to storing your data. Often times you will hear this referred as a “server farm”.
The cloud infrastructure can be found within server rooms or data centers where you find computers, routers, power supplies and related electronics mounted on a rack. More often than not, they are collocated with the network switches and/or routers enabling communication between different parts of the cluster and users of the cluster. These server farms often consist of thousands of computers requiring a large amount of power and cooling to keep them running.
