4 walls
1 ceiling
1 door
at least one cable duct
ventilation or AC
electric power

With these minimum requirements in place, you will have somewhere to put your server and communication equipment. The specification of these totally depend on what your server needs to do. (and they also have impact on the dimensioning for all the basic needs, listed above).

So: there is no one single correct answer. It all depends on what you need to do.

Lurk around a bit. Browse articles. Visit some computer centers. Talk to people. Read. Understand. Think of how you'd address particular situations. Be happy!

Those aren't specifically the requirements in this situation.

They only asked for an effective server room!

unless / until there is a server in it

Maybe you can tell how it is that I am, and, how all else is.

You could append that to what our supplicant asks, if you are up to it.

Well for starters some form of Server and then some way to connect it to whatever it's controlling.

As there are many possibilities here as to what type of Server you may want, What OS it's loaded with and what it's actually doing.

For instance a 6,000 CPU Blade is an ideal server for the right application and is very economical when running SUSE but if all you want is a File Server for 2 computers it's more than a bit of Over Kill.

Similarly if you have a P2 System loaded with Windows Server 2008 R2 and want a unit to run as a Terminal Server to do lots of Data Processing that's way underpowered to what is needed.
