#manifiestonube 4 Hosting is economy of scale

Do you know that we talk about server farms?

Can you imagine large industrial buildings full of web servers?

Do you know that Google has more than one million web servers?

And you still want to compete with them?
Servers are placed in racks, and these racks are placed in data centers. Data centers need special Internet connections, when you choose an ADSL you look at the download speed, while for them the upload speed is more important. Servers need constant electricity, connection, temperature and humidity. In addition to constant maintenance as I indicated in the previous post.
Data centers consume a lot of energy both to process information and to dissipate the heat they generate.
In web hosting there are economies of scale due to the amortization of hardware and buildings, as well as connection, maintenance and energy costs.
