SMSR: asking for space

Rack space, power, and available cooling in the self-managed server rooms are all limited. Before you make plans to site equipment in either room, you must submit a support request explaining what you propose to do, how much rack space you'll need, and how much power your equipment can be expected to draw. If the request is reasonable, we'll then reserve the space, subject to the School's SMSR space policy.

Please note that there MUST be a current member of staff acting as administrative contact and sponsor for the machine(s). The group managing the machine(s) must ensure that this remains the case as staff leave the School. Machines which appear to be unowned may be turned off and removed from the SMSRs.
