i agree, what about power, and clean power, and Fire suppression equipment, what about back up power, diesel generator? and multiple bandwidth providers and fibre .. makes no sense to have this in house.
except for non mission critical stuff, that is not important if its lost.
a false alarm and a sprinkler goes off, the equipment is damaged .. is it worth it? look carefully at power cost, power in a business unit might cost more than you think!
