What is a Data Centre?
Data centres are sometimes referred as the place where the internet lives. 

They are rooms or buildings that offer space, power and cooling to house and host servers, compute, storage and other ICT equipment. Modern data centres have evolved today to support thousands of interconnected devices efficiently and effectively.  In doing so, data centres support every conceivable aspect of our lives: transport infrastructures, government services, telecommunications, entertainment, business processes, and social networks. Almost every app on a smartphone today will process its data through a data centre.
