Managed Data Center

Definition - What does Managed Data Center mean?

A managed data center is a type of data center model that is deployed, managed and monitored at/from a third-party data center service provider.

It provides features and functionality similar to that of a standard data center, but through a managed service platform (MSP).

Techopedia explains Managed Data Center

Typically, a managed data center can be sourced from data center hosting, colocation or through a cloud-based data center as a service (DCaaS) platform.

Managed data centers can be partially or entirely managed. A partially managed data center enables organizations to have some level of administrative control over the data center infrastructure and/or service. Whereas in an entirely managed data center, the bulk or all of the back-end data center administration and management is done by the data center provider.

Based on the service level agreement, the service provider is generally responsible for:

  • Upkeep and maintenance of all hardware and network equipment and services
  • Installation, upgrade and patching of operating systems and other system-level software
  • Data center storage and backup maintenance
  • Fault tolerance and data center infrastructure redundancy in case of disaster or other disrupting events
