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.

I can imagine!

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:



Amazing stuff!

Thank you for such incredible detail and sharing. Much appreciated.

My documentation leaves something to be desired. It's being reworked
into a living system so I don't have to constantly update it.
