Ooh. Please share. You're the first case I've seen in a *long* time where getting the BTU's *out* of the rack wasn't more of a challenge than getting the watts *into* the rack. Once you're talking about "datacenter" sized spaces, those BTU's add up, and there's plenty of current spaces where the limit isn't the power feed into the building, it's the room on the roof for the chillers....
