Housing

In housing, a service recipient (mainly a company) locates its own hardware respectively computer in the computer centre of an internet service provider (host). As the Data Centre has a comprehensive protection system (uninterruptible power supply, air conditioning, fire protection), the service recipient is allowed to use it. There is the chance of building-in several servers in a rack. Moreover, recipients may hire enclosed parts (cages) or separate parts (suites).
