I have an alternative (albeit silly) solution, but mind you it doesn't
make sense in quite a few cases. Take the money you were going to spend
on clever (and expensive) fire suppression systems in the bank and use
the ordinary building sprinkler systems. In the highly unlikely event
that you have a serious fire (you have an offsite data backup, right?),
you take the money you banked and buy much better gear for cheaper. For
department level COTS clusters, this might be the most cost effective
