Advice / Remodeling an office/furnishing office
« on: July 17, 2016, 03:13:52 am »
Let me post some backstory.

I'm starting a company called Olympus Gaming Solutions. We are a no frills/bullshit game hosting company. The difference between us and our competition is we don't name our internet "omg fast internet scam name" We also don't pay per playerslot (typically, we offer that for those who want that stuff) We offer stuff on per core and gigabyte of RAM they want. Not all game servers support more than 2 or 4 cores, so why pay for it like it does? That's what we aim to change. Many years ago I bought an old dell server because of the hosting bullshit. I realize this seems more as an advertisement at this point, but bare with me a bit.

Most hosting companies that start rent servers from other companies. That's a big no. Those are the people who want to make a buck then exit making huge sums of profit. No, I'm doing things right. This means building a datacenter. It won't be as large as you typically see on the internet. Only a souple server cabinets to start, but it gives us room for expansion. It makes sense, a warehouse property costs the same as commercial office building that would fit a couple server cabinets. However, the warehouse doesn't quite fit the company needs.

It's 5100 SQFT (squarefeet) with a roughly 700 squarefoot office/reception area. I'm going to expand this a bit, have two stories. downstairs will have break room and offices plus a bathroom and a station for troubleshooting servers. Upstairs will have a ocnference room, a room for future cubicals, a bathroom, small room for the office network, and a library/quiet room.

My delima is not designing the rooms, but what the hell to put in the office!? What kind of stuff do i need besides workstations and a desk!? That's why I'm asking for advice.
Don't worry about budgets either. I stuff i need, is functional and is cost effective for a business of my class.

P.S, should any of you think about investing or want to invest in my start up or have any questions relating to that, then please PM me and keep it out of the thread.
