Learn about IDC (Internet Data Center) in few minutes

IDC network infrastructure

  Communications in data centers today are most often based on networks running the IP protocol suite. Data centers contain a set of routers and switches that transport traffic between the servers and to the outside world which are connected according to the data center network architecture. Redundancy of the Internet connection is often provided by using two or more upstream service providers.

  Beside the basic hardware network and communication telecom equipment (fiber equipment solution included) infrastructure, some of the servers at the data center are used for running the basic Internet and intranet services needed by internal users in the organization, e.g., e-mail servers, proxy servers, and DNS servers.

  Network security elements are also usually deployed: firewalls, VPN gateways, intrusion detection systems, etc. Also common are monitoring systems for the network and some of the applications. Additional off site monitoring systems are also typical, in case of a failure of communications inside the data center.

What is the IDC Applications?

  The main purpose of a data center is running the IT systems applications that handle the core business and operational data of the organization. Such systems may be proprietary and developed internally by the organization, or bought from enterprise software vendors. Such common applications are ERP and CRM systems.

  A data center may be concerned with just operations architecture or it may provide other services as well.

  Often these applications will be composed of multiple hosts, each running a single component. Common components of such applications are databases, file servers, application servers, middleware, and various others.

  Data centers are also used for off site backups. Companies may subscribe to backup services provided by a data center. This is often used in conjunction with backup tapes. Backups can be taken off servers locally on to tapes. However, tapes stored on site pose a security threat and are also susceptible to fire and flooding. Larger companies may also send their backups off site for added security. This can be done by backing up to a data center. Encrypted backups can be sent over the Internet to another data center where they can be stored securely.

IDC Architecture and Fiber Optic Equipment

  The data center serves the LAN and WAN. The data center is comprised of switches connecting the users to servers and more switches [S] connecting servers [C] to storage [D].
  Data center architectures often include redundancy and multiple connections between servers, storage and switches. That’s what’s generally called a “mesh” network because when you draw in all the connections it looks like a mesh. That also means data centers can have very large numbers of cables to make all these connections.
  Today, the hardware network solution mostly choose fiber optics equipment products to connecting and communicating.Detailly, including but not limited to optical switch, PON products, optical transceiver module or SFP (SFP+), fiber optic distribution frame (ODF), fiber optic terminal box, MPO/MTP patch panel, MPO/MTP cassette, MPO/MTP trunk cable, fan-out patchcord, MPO/MTP adapter panel, fiber optic pigtail and patchcord etc.
