iRexta is facing what he describes as "a big crisis" at the colocation facilities they use in a data center in India. They've been with them for over a year to be able to service their Asian customers, and have three full racks adjacent to each other. For about two weeks now the temperature near the server racks has increased abnormally to 29-30 degrees Celsius. The technical department of the data center was informed about this but they appear to be ignoring it. They keep saying this temperature is perfect for servers, but last week the motherboards of several servers went down. His guess is that the problem with such malfunctions is due to temperature rise. He asks if this temperature is suitable for servers? A number of questions arise within the thread, with mentions of datacenters possibly (and gradually) increasing the temperature within their DCs to decrease the cost of cooling, and whether certain server hardware is better able to cope with higher latent temperatures than others. Have you implemented or experienced temperature increases within facilities?

CloudLinux is BoxFly's favorite OS but he points out that a lot of hosts uses AlamaLinux on their dedicated servers meaning that they need to control PHP versions and such. He asks why don't all hosts use CloudLinux on their dedicated servers for their customers? One of the obvious answers is cost, with prices starting from $4 per month for bulk users of solo accounts up to $18 a month for a single server Shared Pro customer. Some of the features of CL are also present in other hosting software, notably DirectAdmin and Enhance, so, with rising licence and operating costs across the industry, hosts are finding ways to not have to use commercial software and are opting for free alternatives. Which route have you taken, and why?
