Did you know that Netflix uses 34 percent of the total internet traffic in North America during peak time?

But how does this happen seamlessly? The answer is through data centers.

Data centers are vital to the functioning of any company operating online. They ensure data is processed and saved securely.

The infographic below, posted by Cool Infographics and produced by Wilcon, shows how data centers manage the massive amount of bytes and proves why their role is increasingly needed.

The usual journey of data starts from the centers, continues through networking cables and reaches internet service providers. From there, the data go to the modem and router to arrive on your computer.

As a streaming service, Netflix relies on a strong data center infrastructure that allows users to continuously play movies and series as they are received from servers, and not download their entire files.

Find more details below on the importance of data centers while the internet grows at light speed.
