Server room temperature recommendations
Posted on 2003-03-05
We will be moving into a new building (new construction) in a few months and I will have 2 Compaq servers in a small 7' x 7' room. Originally the design was for a seperate A/C unit for that room. Now there has been discussion of just venting that room and not putting in any seperate A/C. The building as a whole will not be air conditioned during non-business hours. I know that heat can be a computers worst enemy, so I am concerned.
My question is, what is the temperature a small server room should be kept, so that heat is not an issue in the performance of the servers.
Thanks in advance for any advice.
