And the cost isn't always monetary, especially in large organizations.
Getting the whole facilities aspect taken care of can take quite a
while, especially if your facilities of pre-computer vintage. Getting
the cooling upgraded is often quite painful as it is often the most
inadequate requirement for a reasonably sized cluster and requires lots
of building abuse (ie. drilling big holes in floors and such).
