I am in the process of building a house. I designed a room that can accommodate three 24 x 36 inch cabinets or four
post racks. I will likely install a APC 2200 watt UPS in the bottom of two of the racks, and the third will be a
cross-connect field, patch panels, etc.
The room will have a small, ductless ac unit, maybe a ton or a little more, which should be good for about 3 to 5 kw of
The house is backed up by a 48 kw genset with an auto transfer switch.
The weakness will be only one provider of connectivity.

Subject: Home computer rooms
Related to my thread about home data centers, what are folks using to
store compute gear in?
Mine sits in two racks in my second bedroom. Cooled by ambient AC.
Has anyone built a dedicated room? What resources did you use to do so?
Are their any standards to reference etc?
