Data center is responsible not only for providing data security, networking and other such needs but also for providing the hardware items to the employees in the company. For example, if anyone needs a new mouse, then he/she can contact the data center for the same and get it in an authorized way. Modems, laptops, pen-drives and many other such items can be accessed authoritatively and with full verification through the data hub.
Nowadays, vending machines are available in many organizations for getting devices. But the installing and record keeping (if required) of those machines is done by the data engineers.
