    Air conditioned, or just equiped with fans..

    most DC's have raised flooring that can pump a/c right into the bottom of a rack, but thats not technically an air conditioned rack.

    What model, make, brank, whatever do you use now?

    You need a real good size budget at $5,000 a rack

    So, what your saying is that this really is not financially a good replacement for a full A/C system in a small datacenter?

    Edit: I am really not familiar what a cooling system would cost for a small dataceter.

    $5,000 for the cabinet plus installation (very expensive in any downtown building, I think you have to hook up pluming and drainage to each cabinet.) .

    But then again regular 15 to 20 ton air-condition unites need the same. Depending on the size of the elevators the cost for installation for the regular air condition unit is $15,000 to $25,000 as a guess. Counterbalancing a elevator and/or taking the unit apart to bring it up to the floor is not cheap as well as the cost to bring water and drainage into the unit, if not already in place.
