Buying previously owned IT equipment can be a great way to achieve the savings that so many businesses are looking for, but it’s important that you take the time to learn exactly what you’re getting before you make such an investment
The main purpose of setting up a data centre is to house the servers needed to support client applications and websites as well as infrastructure management. Servers are arranged in ranks. These ranks can be placed in a specific configuration within the managed hosting to optimize cooling.

Computers and systems are connected to the internet connection to enable the access of IT solutions. Data is distributed to and from the server by a system of network switches. Depending on the density, a data centre can have one or more switches per rack.
Power is needed to keep all equipment up and running. Data centres usually have redundant electricity and often a backup generator to provide reliable power in case of power outage. An uninterruptible power supply (UPS) ensures that the quality remains constant even after a power outage. It compensates for frequency and voltage fluctuations to effectively protect sensitive electronic components and systems.
Data centres usually have a range of security devices to limit access to the virtual environment and physical building. The server room is protected by several technologies to mitigate damage from storms and reduce seismic movement from earthquakes. They also have fire safety systems to prevent damage from external and internal fires.
In a data centre, computing equipment usually emit a considerable amount of heat. In this case, cooling systems help prevent overheating. Cooling systems can use water, glycol, and chilled air to cool the room.
Data center infrastructure management is the collision of Information Technology and building facilities pertaining to a company. Their role is to give the administrators with overall concept of data center performance such that the floor space, energy and machinery are consumed efficiently. Read more...
Storage is frequently used to describe the devices and data connected to the computer through input/output (I/O) operations -- that is, hard disk and tape systems and other forms of storage that don't include computer memory and other in-computer storage.

The design and quality of DIMMs are critical to system availability and performance.
Most brands are committed to memory quality because it has a direct impact on the reliability of your data and your productivity. The costs of system downtime, data loss, and reduced productivity caused by lower quality memory are far greater than the price difference between a brands' Certified memory and other DIMMs on the market.

Data center hardware is the collective IT and other hardware components that make up the entire data center infrastructure. It is a term that collectively defines and includes functional and non-functional hardware devices and equipment necessary for the operations of a data center. Here we refer to the Data center infrastructure as the core physical or hardware-based resources and components – including all IT infrastructure devices and equipment.

The uninterruptible power supply (UPS) is a back-up power system used to ensure uninterrupted power for various electronic devices. All but the most basic UPS systems also condition incoming power to level out sags and surges, helping to prevent damage to today’s sensitive electronic gear.
The UPS has it’s own rechargeable battery which provides emergency power for your system immediately when the main supply is cut, therefore preventing data loss.

A power distribution unit (PDU) provides steady, uninterruptible power to multiple servers in a rack environment. The rackmount PDUs are designed to be installed in a vertical (0U) or horizontal (1U or more) server rack position. This device is essentially an industrial-grade power strip.
The main purpose of a PDU is to supply AC power to multiple IT equipment pieces within the rack system. Distribute power simply with a basic power strip with no internal intelligence or boost it up with a more advanced model including outlet level power monitoring to remotely monitor, control, and report the status of every outlet within the unit.

A solid-state drive (SSD), sometimes called a solid-state disk or electronic disk, is a data storage device that uses integrated circuit assemblies as memory to store data persistently. SSDs are available in a number of interfaces including SATA, SAS, PCIe, mSATA (Mini SATA), uSATA (Micro SATA) and more. Options include the most reliable SLC SSDs or the higher capacity ultra fast MLC and TLC architectures including vNAND options.
SSD technology uses electronic interfaces compatible with traditional block I/O hard disk drives.

A KVM switch (with KVM being an abbreviation for "keyboard, video and mouse") is a hardware device that allows a user to control multiple computers from one or more sets of keyboards, video monitors, and mice.
These consoles provide convenient, rack-mounted control options for single servers or the entire server room. KVM consoles include LCD display, keyboard, and trackpad, all sliding neatly into 1U of rack space.

A disk array is a disk storage system which contains multiple disk drives. It is differentiated from a disk enclosure, in that an array has cache memory and advanced functionality, like RAID and virtualization. Components of a typical disk array include: Disk array controllers.
DAE stands for Disk Array Enclosure. This is the component of your EMC rack that contains the actual disk drives of the platform, where the data is stored. They come in a multitude of different shapes and sizes, depending on your needs – you can also purchase expansions for a number of existing EMC products.

Blade server-a server architecture that houses multiple server modules ("blades") in a single chassis. It is widely used in datacenters to save space and improve system management.
Either self standing or rack mounted, the chassis provides the power supply, and each blade has its own CPU, RAM and storage.
Redundant power supplies may be an option. Blade servers generally provide their own management systems and may include a network or storage switch.

The hardware components that a typical server computer comprises are similar to the components used in less expensive client computers. However, server computers are usually built from higher-grade components than client computers.

A host bus adapter (HBA) is a circuit board and/or integrated circuit adapter that provides input/output (I/O) processing and physical connectivity between a host system, or server, and a storage and/or network device. Because an HBA typically relieves the host microprocessor of both data storage and retrieval tasks, it can improve the server's performance time. An HBA and its associated disk subsystems are sometimes referred to as a disk channel.

A transceiver is a device comprising both a transmitter and a receiver that are combined and share common circuitry or a single housing. When no circuitry is common between transmit and receive functions, the device is a transmitter-receiver. The term originated in the early 1920s.
A transceiver is a combination transmitter/receiver in a single package. The term applies to wireless communications devices such as cellular telephones, cordless telephone sets, handheld two-way radios, and mobile two-way radios. Occasionally the term is used in reference to transmitter/receiver devices in cable or optical fiber systems.
In a radio transceiver, the receiver is silenced while transmitting. An electronic switch allows the transmitter and receiver to be connected to the same antenna, and prevents the transmitter output from damaging the receiver. With a transceiver of this kind, it is impossible to receive signals while transmitting. This mode is called half duplex. Transmission and reception often, but not always, are done on the same frequency.
