Every time you access your email, do online research, or any number of things that we all take for granted these days—that information passes through a data center. A data center has numerous large computers that store and process large amounts of information and keeps all that information buzzing through cyberspace.

According to an article on, at the end of Oct, 2019 there were approximately 500 hyper data centers in the world with 38% of them located in the United States in states like Iowa, South Carolina and more. Those data centers are owned by companies such as Amazon, Microsoft, Facebook and Google.

A typical data center facility has many types of equipment including chillers, cooling towers, water pumps, heat exchangers and control systems. Each piece of equipment needs to be maintained in order to keep all that data freely flowing through cyberspace.
