What is a Rack?
A rack, according to the dictionary, is a framework for holding things. In the Internet world, a rack is usually a framework for holding computers.
Racks can contain as few as one computer, such as a large enterprise server, or they can contain many smaller computers such as dedicated web servers.
A dedicated server can cost thousands of dollars to purchase, thousands of dollars a month and many hours of labor to maintain. If you'd rather spend your resources growing your business than wrestling with server expense and maintenance time, then RackShare is for you.
What is a Data Center?
A Data Center is filled with racks. Many computers are located on the rack, and many racks fill the room. A Data Center is usually operated by a networking company such as MCI or Sprint or UUNET, or by smaller companies such as national, regional, and local ISPs.
A central feature of a Data Center is connectivity, the connections between a Data Center and the rest of the Internet. Neary all Data Centers - the only ones worth talking about, actually - have redundant connections to the Internet. The Center might have T-3 connections to Sprint and UUNET, for example. A T-3 is more than 700 times the speed of your 56K modem connection, which ensures that when a visitor comes to your web site and requests a page, it is delivered as fast as possible.
