Note:
- Prices listed below are as reference only and are not including shipping. We need to research if we can find a cheaper vendor. -Also, please notice that we are listing two racks, a 2 post and a 4 post rack, assuming that we want them. But, because the $ factor we could just choose one 4 post rack only, that I believe can handle Switches and Servers and the amount of them that we currently have. But eventually with expected grow we may need to separate these two groups. Having these two racks now will keep things in their place, and reduce the overhead work that only one rack will provide. -VERY IMPORTANT: Please don't be shy to ask, comment, or provide suggestions; Sudo (and Omni) members participation is very welcome. Wiring Scheme to be used: T568B.

* Can we find someone to bend chicken-wire into the tracks we need to hang from the ceiling? <-- not sure if this will up to code (legal), we will need to find

Thank you <snip><snip>.
<snip><snip>, and <snip><snip> thank you for questions and interest.
 
I've not done the walk-through yet because of the somewhat restricted
access to the whole building, so no photos.
 
Here are other questions that I suggest we should look for their
answers also:
1.- Based on the current equipment and envisioning the future of Sudo-SudoMesh(-Omni) what size room do we need?
2.- How is the potential room airflow?
3.- How is temperature of the room, now and during the Summer?
4.- Are there electrical outlets nearby?
5.- Do we have enough Amps in that area?
6.- If not, do we need to install a circuit breaker box with scalability?
7.- Room's accessibility?
8.- Security: Who and when people have access to it when no Sudoers are present?
9.- What type of racks, 2 or 4 of both size rack? or no this of rack? Someone mentioned a wall mount rack in the open?
10.- If 2 or 4 post rack, should we get CAT6A ready? This means that at least the backbone wiring, Patch panel, and connectors need to CAT6A.
 
Just these questions for now... but I encourage others to please add/correct/comment/suggest as needed.
 
For those interested here is the link to the 'wish' list that I've been working on:
