I had a data center tour on Sunday where they said that the way they
provide space is by power requirements. You state your power
requirements, they give you enough rack/cabinet space to *properly*
house gear that consumers that much power. If your gear is particularly
compact then you will end up with more space than strictly necessary.
It's a good way of looking at the problem, since the flipside of power
consumption is the cooling problem. Too many servers packed in a small
space (rack or cabinet) becomes a big cooling problem.
