    Please be aware that this document only provides a loose analogy and should not be taken literally. You cannot eat a data centre, even in bite-sized portions.

Data centre offerings are made up of many different services - from the basic provision of power, space and connectivity to web hosting to IT services to cloud-based software as a service. Data centre operators may offer just one of these services to their customers, or a combination of them. This variety can seem confusing so these notes explain, in an easily digestible form, how everything fits together.
