I know this is a site for professionals, but please bear with me.
I have seen server rooms, and they have racks and racks of servers, routers, and switches. I want to know, what is the purpose of all these? Where does the data go once it enters the server room?
Most of all, what resources are there for me to learn this?
Sorry, I know this is a "noob" question, but I am very fascinated by this sort of stuff
