Cooling Down Our Server Room

coldA few weeks ago we moved into our new space and part of our new space was to make sure we had a more manageable server room. Note: We don't manage our production servers in our office but most of our development work is housed internally.

When we moved in, there was no air conditioning or cooling in the server closet. A temporary fix was to stick fans in the drop ceiling and open a couple tiles. In fact, this is how we had it in our old office for ten years. Not the best solution but we didn't have space.

Now that we have space, we wanted to do a better job of cooling down our test servers.

This is how it looked before the A/C was installed:

Now with A/C and vented tiles:
