Hello experts,
i have a new server room and i need to buy a split for this room but i don;t know how much BTU.
i have to tell the company how much heat would the servers provide and that is something i do not know.

I Have 5 servers. 2 x  ML350 G4 with single powersupply, 2 x DL360 G5 with dual powersupply and 1 x ML370 G5 with dual power supply.

i Have 2 rack enclosers 42U,1 for the servers and 1 for the pathpanels and switched.
i have four foundry switches and 1 watchguard firewall.

the server room dimension is 2.70m long x 2.30m wide.

i was thinking on putting a 12.000 BTU split unit in there.

what do you guys think?

You can easily find the BTU rating for these servers if you google around a bit

e.g.

ML350 = 3125 BTU
DL 360  = 2910 BTU
ML 370 = 3500 BTU


Add some BTU for the switches and you'll need at least 20.000 BTU. If you live in a warm climate, you need to add extra BTU for that too.
