IT Office Space

An anonymous reader writes "Here's the story. My company is building a new office. As the local "IT Guy," I've been asked to design my new office from the ground up. If you were given the opportunity to design your dream office, what features would you include? What things would you try to avoid? I get to determine absolutely everything. The catch? I have to share my office space with all the network equipment. Just 4 standard racks, and all your basic telephone and network wiring. Can anyone help me get started? I have no idea where to even begin."

Office Space and Server Equipment don't mix (1)

skidv (656766) | more than 6 years ago | (#21824264)

Ask for a dividing wall between you and the server equipment so they can have their happy temperature (70 degrees F) and you can have yours (74 degrees F). Put a door between you and the equipment so you can keep out their noise.

Your equipment needs backup power and dedicated air conditioning.

Good luck.
