DPCs have an area for telecommunications companies to physically connect their networks and exchange traffic.
Data Processing Centers are designed for security with few windows and features such as mantraps for access control. They are generally monitored with cameras and may have security guards on site.
This is a dedicated operations staff room with tools to monitor, manage, maintain and secure IT resources. A Network Operations Center (NOC) can provide front-line support that provides service desk services, incident management and problem management.
Benefits of using a Data Center in a company:
Having a DPC as a powerful resource that strengthens the company's activities brings great advantages:
A Data Processing Center ensures that the business continues to function properly regardless of the events that occur.
The resources, information and processes that are indispensable to a business must be available whenever they are needed in order to continue offering them without losing money due to the instability or unavailability of the systems.
Speed of response
It is not enough for data center resources to always be available, they must also respond quickly to the needs of the business.
Data centers must respond quickly to key business applications, have optimal connectivity technologies such as servers, fiber optic networks or link management through an SD-WAN solution to ensure the availability of essential systems.
A Data Processing Center must have high standards of information security, as well as qualified personnel to prevent leaks or losses.
Undoubtedly, having a disaster recovery option or a Disaster Recovery solution is one of the best decisions, especially if you are in a sensitive sector, such as banking, government or insurance.
High storage capacity
A data center offers the possibility of storing a large amount of information because of the company's own infrastructure or that of the provider. As virtualization is one of the most relevant technologies to increase storage capacity with lower costs, it is a great alternative for growing businesses.
Data management can be complex and require professionals in network and communications management, as well as specialists in the correct implementation of infrastructure.
On the other hand, contracting a data center service provider allows businesses to focus on their activities and simplify the process of storing information.
In the case of making use of a third-party data center, these allow a business to immediately request an increase in its storage capacity or infrastructure. In addition, through cloud storage it is possible to pay only for the space used without having any predetermined limit.
However, if you have your own DPC, companies have to project their growth and scale their capacities as their needs grow.
Because they have high availability and are increasingly linked to cloud storage technologies, Data Processing Centers allow businesses to use their information when they need it, even to transfer it to other equipment or create a remote work scheme.
Efficiency and reliability
