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. What we don’t think about is this information has to be physically stored on a device somewhere.  Companies that offer Cloud services still need huge servers dedicated to storing your data. Often you will hear this referenced as a “server farm”.

Server farms are found in server rooms or data centers where you will find computers, routers, power supplies and related electronics mounted on a rack. They are typically 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.
