Planning ahead is key. Servers are getting smaller and smaller so you'll need more and more power and cooling available per rack the longer the data center will be up and running. One company I worked at didn't plan well and could only use 3/4 of each rack in the data center because there wasn't enough power available when the newer denser servers started getting deployed.
