The applications, services, and data contained in a data center, which makes a company a focus and essential asset for everyday business usually are very dependent. No single data center is required, and modern companies can use two or more data centers installed at multiple sites to improve resiliently and application performance and thus, to reduce latency by finding more user-friendly workloads.

Conversely, a business with multiple data centers can decide to consolidate data centers to reduce the number of sites so that the costs of IT operations are minimized. Consolidation typically occurs when the majority business does not require data centers owned by the subordinate business in the course of fusions and acquisitions.
