It is a (usually) big room with air-conditioning and UPS and fire safety precautions. It is locked and only allowed personal can enter the room, and in that room you have racks, and in those racks servers, storage systems, Switches, patch panels, routers, firewalls etc. Often the rack space is hired out to customers so their servers are hosted in that secure environment. Some will also offer to do the server management and rent the server, and some allow the customer to to have physical access to the servers they have. ISP's often also have such datacenters.
