what are today's standards?
33 watts per rack, had trouble trying to extrapolate what that actually meant..
- 33 watts per rack unit ? (too low)
- 3300 watts per rack ? (too low)
- 33,000 watts per rack ? (seems too high)
What standards is this facility being measured against? What are today's standards? For me in the colo world I would consider 5kW/rack to be standard. with 10kW+ being good, and 15kW+ being amazing. I would be surprised if this new facility was less than 10kW/rack if they are using SGI gear since that stuff is usually pretty dense.
