I had initially asked Booger this question and he had gave me
some good interesting ideas about how a network for a mid
level company should function. My main question involved
servers. I have became facinated with the way that blade
servers along with a cool rack are supposed to be the whole
'wave of the future". HP Proliant Servers On the special cooling
racks which are evidently able to prevent servers from overheating
in a case scenario such as the air conditioning breaking in a certain
envioronment thats required to maintain a cool temperate.
In the past they we're well known for overheating from what I recall
reading. Far be it from me, ive read into a lot of different network
designs and I had an idea that one server could successfully allow
your network to function. As I was told about the problems that
could asiee from one server made me go with my gut. I'll cut to the
chase, if I ever run a company I would like it to be set up correctly
so im using all the tools, well just Microsoft Visio and Smartdraw Suite
for floorplans to work off of. My future company would have three
floors, on of them being a call center and the other two utilizing
fifty workstations. None the less I was wondering what some
of you individuals who actually see servers everyday until you
think of the really good ones that are so expensive for your
companies, businesses, etc. Your ingight on this topic would
be greatly appreciated if you could elaborate and razzle dazzle
me with your great minds for a moment out of your days.
Theres one other thing. I've never seen a server room aside form
the internet displays. For those who actually work around them
consistently, does a server need to be be on each floor or can
there just be one solo server room/data center for IT Admins and such?
I appologize for the way that I have orchestrated this question,
but if you read I hope you understand what im trying to accomplish.
Thank you for your time and attention and participation smarties.
