    Portable Air Con Unit's - recommendations

    We have a small room within our offices here which house couple of our test servers (everything else is in a DC).

    We need to cool the room as the servers kick out a fair bit of heat.

    My requirements are that it doesn't require a hose to release water out and ideally can be set to auto power on if the power fails (although we could UPS it).

    it doesn't have to be hugely powerful as it will only be a few servers (ML370 G5 and 2 Dl380's).

    Any recommendations?

    You need to exhaust the hot air anyway so hose for water shouldn't be an issue?

    I know about the hot air (i can pump that out easily) water is just a bit of an issue due to its location.

    Feed the hose into the office plant. Problem solved?

    We are in an office full of blokes - I don't know what those plant things are!

    My portable unit stores and condensed water and then you can empty it in to a container and dispose of. It's a premair unit.
