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.
Mine sits in a small room / closet under the stairs, in an on-purpose
built for this. But it is a little cramped with the current amount of
equipment I have.
Has anyone built a dedicated room? What resources did you use to do so?
Are their any standards to reference etc?
I do not believe there are any standards applicable to this, though I've
sometimes wondered if someone should write a guideline document for
recommendations concerning what kind of setup makes sense from a long
term perspective. Cat6, tubing to be able to replace even those, enough
space & ventilation for the equipment, power, etc. I chose to put my IT
equipment in a different utility room than the electrical/heating/etc
equipment. In most new houses the two are in the same room.
Here's some more information on what i did & some pictures:
