What cooling solution options do I have for a small server room?

Hey guys,

I have a small server room with a measly portable AC unit at the moment.  However, the room is actually hotter when the door is closed than when the door is open.  Needless to say, the portable AC unit is not an effective solution haha.  I want to know what cooling options might be available for a small server room that's located in the middle of a 3 story building on the first floor.  So far all I can think of is creating some kind of duct to exhaust all the hot air, but I really need some other suggestions to find out what might work best.  Thank you.

If there's a drop ceiling, you can install a unit that vents the hot air into the ceiling.  I've used Movin Cool - http://www.movincool.com/ - before with success.

Thanks guys.  Very helpful insight.  I think adding an additional unit in the ceiling will be the way to go for our solution.
