I'm doing some cost modeling of what it'd look like to significantly scale up my mining operation. I'm at a handful of rigs now, and it is clear that if I continue to invest in mining equipement, I will very soon reach a scale that is not safe or economical to host at home and/or I will run out of patience for my wife :-).
One of the things I'm considering is where to host such an operation. Looking at office space around the area (I'm in Colorado USA), there is very little that would meet the power and cooling requirements of a 30+ rig system. ( Depending upon the card I choose, I'd be looking at a continual 25 kw load at 30 rigs. )
Has anyone looked into this, and if so, what did you find? How did you approach the problem of moving to a pro space?
Did you find it was more cost effective to colocate at a professional-level data center, or did you simply rent office space and work out of that?
If you colocating, how did you deal with the fact that your servers are not standard "blades" that fit into a rack in most data centers?
