Re: [datacenter] peak capacity planning for power vs. cooling

I'm talking about a small machine room, of the "here, take this room
and use it to put servers in, it's the only room we have available"
variety.  We figure out what machines are going to go in there, add
the required number of circuits and the cooling needed, and install.

I don't understand how "watts per square foot" applies in this case,
to give any different answers about cooling than simply calculating
the total and working from that.

However, my real question was about the difference between capacity
planning for power and cooling.  I've seen one comment saying that I
don't really need to have enough power for simultaneous peak.  Anyone
/ anything else?  How about cooling?  Did the estimated calculations I
presented seem to make sense?
