Data Center Info
I am don't have much knowledge of data center. I am jsut wondering how do they setup 1000s of servers there.
How do they choose the routers?
How do they choose switches?
If you provide some link to learn, I am more than happy to go and have a look at it.

Most datacenters use Cisco equipment for thier networking. This is primarly because of the reputation Cisco has in that market. As for the safety systems, fire systems are installed to prevent fire without liquid, normally fire retardent foam or something similar, backup power generators with a mix of battery backups. As for system data backup, this depends on the specfic datacenter. For most unmanaged server sellers they offer this service as an extra fee, as for managed it may be included. Various forms of backup exsist, Tape drives, remote servers, or local servers are the most common. Hope this helps.
