    Cost wise, you'd be better off having backups in a safe place rather than trying to keep the server room standing when the rest of the school has burned down!

    Ours is in a tipee in the middle of the field.

    Causes no end of trouble with the fibre when they have the grass cut.

    We have 2 pipes containing the main routes to our school heating in ours.

    This is why I installed a moisture sensor and text messaging system. Although, it takes me 8 minutes to get from home to school so by the time I got there, half the room would be flooded :P

    Put the expensive/critical servers at the top of the rack then?

    Surely though if the pipes are above the ceiling or at ceiling height then they may splurge all over the top servers and kill them off first and the bottom ones will drown and so the middle i guess is the happy medium?

    We dont have anything in ours, no fire door, no extinguisher, no system fitted. If there was a fire it would burn as quickly as anything else

    Backups are right over the other side of the site in a fire safe though, so it would have have to be the mother of all fires to destroy both locations
