I'm the project lead for a secondary datacenter build out. We're using a co-location model. So far, we've racked/stacked the racks, PDUs, blade chassis, and brocade fabric switches

You might not answer this question but what type of budget do you have for this build??

I like APC That is looking pretty good. What type of cooling do you have there? We are designing a new site and cannot wait to see it built out.

We've secured around $750,000 for the project in year one. Additional funds will be requested in future years to bring on systems that did not make it into the year one plan.

The co-location facility has an HVAC system with four 30-Ton CRAC units. We purchased our own APC racks and will have APC NetBotz humidity and temperature sensors in them to ensure we receive the proper amount cooling.

Thanks for sharing the pics. I used to work for a company with a smallish server room that have 3 server tacks + a telco rack so that size of a setup feels just right!

mmm Juniper.

EX3200 or 4200?

Also, what is the module that you have installed in the top two EX's?

It has what looks like indicator LEDs on the right hand side. Have not seen these modules before...

The switches are EX4200-48T (48x 1Gbps RJ45 + 2x 10Gbps LC or 4x 1Gbps LC + 8x PoE RJ45)

The routers have a MIC-3D-20GE-SFP (20-Port Gigabit Ethernet MIC with SFP) module added. We will be using them for additional RJ45 ports at this time.
