power loadings new IT infrastructure
Hi all i have been invited to a meeting on monday to discuss how we can provide the electrical contractor with heat/power loadings relating to the proposed new infrastructure of our soon to be built Academy.
My worrys is that we will have to give some fairly important guestimations based on what we believe we will require. As we have had very little technical discussion on what the new IT infrastructure will comprise where should i start?
I can roughly assume the following:
1200+ kids, 75 teaching staff, 75 support gurus,(i'm biased..:)
A hybrid of thin and fat clients (fat in four dedicated suites at least)
A microsoft server environment.
Clearly there will be others in the room with their own thoughts and expertise but its always nice to be pre-armed with relevant knowledge.I have seen the other posts on power consumption and they help a little but i would value any input, how much power a cisco switch users etc etc
As always thanks in advance
