Data-centre traffic is a type of non-human sophisticated invalid traffic (SIVT). It is considered fraudulent when traffic is sent from unknown data centres, such as servers, that deliberately avoid identification. Data-centre traffic comes from an IP address that originates from data centres (networked servers used to store, process, and distribute large volumes of data), not from residential or corporate networks.
