As part of our corporate transparency, we publish regular updates on AtomDrive corporate news and events.
Nowadays, own data centres are maintained mostly by business giants, while the rest of the companies entrust their digital data and equipment to outsourced data centres and hosting companies.
The total number of data centres and server rooms worldwide has exceeded 8.5 billion back in 2015. The current ever developing trend is hyperscale data centres. Today, the increase in data centres number has actually stopped due to the enhanced equipment efficiency and resource optimisation.
Just like many other things, the military industry was the first one to use a data centre. It was the Electronic Numerical Integrator and Computer (ENIAC) centre, which stored launch codes for nuclear weapons, calculations of paths of bomb, and weather forecast information.
In 1953, the first commercial data centre was launched for booking American Airlines flight tickets. It was only 30 years later when a medium-sized business started to digitalise its data and corporate server rooms started to emerge.
Data centres required the best possible physical conditions for smooth and sustainable operation of equipment.
The most protected data centre is located in a military nuclear-proof bunker built during the Cold War. In order to save electricity, and to support the eco-trend, there are data centres that use natural cooling systems, for instance, data centre on a barge on the ocean floor uses cold ocean water for the server cooling system.
Data centre of AtomDrive hosting company is located in Zurich and is protected by the laws of Switzerland with high data protection level. In addition, the high-tech data centre has the best possible conditions to ensure physical protection of equipment.
