A data center will need to have excellent cooling systems. They need excellent fire detections and suppression systems. Data recovery systems will also be needed.

Yes these are among some of the most important. You absolutely need multiple providers and a redundant infrastructure. I agree that 24 hour staffing is ideal in the best data centers.

Don't forget backup power. A good data center should be able to maintain uptime despite a comercial power outage.

I would say that you would have UPS for the power supply and other power backup as well. As mentioned you must also have system and data backup to ensure that there is not a major problem if any type of system failure or other crisis occurs.
