Depends on the DC.  When I worked for IBM the DC I was in was owned by a large financial/credit card company.  Took up a complete city block, 7 floors.  3 floors were over 90% raised floor, one giant room on each of them.  1 floor was lab and receiving, 1 floor was environment control, 1 floor of garage, and 1 floor of office space.  I think it was about 200K sqft total raised floor.  Don't have any pictures 'cause those would get you fired.

To answer everyone's questions.  It is a small data center but that is just one room.  Yes I used to own the company but I sold my interest in December and I am a director of Net Ops at the company that purchased me so I that's why I can take pictures. 

This is a shared space.  Mostly telecom stuff.  Where the TDM network gets converted to Internet protocols. 

Two genny's serve the whole facility, it's very small compared to some of the "mega" facilities.  It is almost NEBS levels 3 so more than adequate as one of the three DC's that comprise are VoIP network.  We are a speck on the beach in the CLE data center, these folks treat us like kings. 

I never walked out back to see the size of the gensets but probably in the 500kw range. 

I am sure that Bob will agree,  having 30 years of working on telco power systems gives a firm foundation for production work. 

Just thought I would share a little glimpse into my "other vocation:.

Crazy me got off the plane at 10:00PM, put on a t-shirt and loaded the truck for tomorrow's shows.

Another reason to run that "little mixer" on 208-240  :)

Somehow I knew that was coming... 🤔

Also consider the Tannoy VXP12, for both main and monitor.

Lots of big datacenters are divided into data halls that look like the attached photos.  Different customers want physically secure space.  Fire supression etc can be contained to one space too.

Not many places are "one room the size of a football field".

...and a regular stream of diesel tankers is triggered to keep the tanks full.

Roughly speaking if the datacenter draws '10X' megawatts it needs 'X' road tankers full of diesel per day to keep it going without grid power.

I was skeptical, but reading all the five star reviews has changed my mind.

Just having a picture of it open on my ipad made a concert 1000km away go off without a hitch.

I don't want to close the window because I know the harm it will cause to listeners everywhere.

It is probably more important for the human ear to be "burned in" prior to a mixing/practice session than for the cables to be.

That's popular in Colorado, Nevada, and a few other "altered" States. 8)

$10.00 gift cards-do they sell anything for $10.00?

At $119.95/ea for fuses, you would think they would come pre-burned in?
