DIY cooling for Data Centers

P1010024.Thumb You’ve heard of bubble wrap, and the boy in the bubble — now, here’s a datacenter in a bubble. I work for a government agency that, like most, is trying to cut back some costs, and one of those costs is a REAL datacenter. So, we decided to wrap the whole thing in plastic (including two 1.5 ton ACs). The room hovers about 83 degrees, however, the racks in the bubble (ok, more like a termite tent) stay about 10 degree cooler. [via] Mirror, Link.
