To maximized data center efficiency administrators implement Blade Server, Virtualization, SOA, and other recent technologies.

Data Centers are complex systems with a variety of technologies that require constantly evolving skills and knowledge that range from routing and switching to load balancing and security. This project will include research, collecting sources, discussing the issues associated with network attacks Data Centers, and reviewing the other key areas related to data center development will be cover the way server availability will describes how to design a highly available infrastructure, and describes how a load balancing device can monitor the availability of applications and servers.
