So now there will be art deco style data center's? sounds like it could be really expensive for half the power, unless of course they use much much greater densities in custom racks but that would result is crazy heat issues within a cabinet.
We can made a full circle with it ?
It looks a little too simplistic for me. It makes me think of something you'd see in an Apple showroom.
I would rather see them make better use of the space that the rack provides, as is valuable in datacenters, rather than make it look all fancy and crap even though the technicians probably wont give two ticks for...
I feel like they are wasting space...
I guess they made this design for air cooling purpose. Like giga server; they have a big round cooling vent on top.
This is going to sound weird but I am being tasked to get another row of server racks in an overly crowded data center. Looking again at the thickness of this rack i think we could put a row of these racks up against the wall and run the network cables in the channel over head. as long as the Cubes have dual gigabit ethernet interfaces they won't need any storage as they'll be able to boot from the SAN and access their storage across the second gigabit NIC. but that is kind of a unique situation and its going to be hella expensive. unless the cubes run under $200ea to replace I doubt we'd go with that idea still it gives another option to bring to management. Still it looks pretty and I'm guessing the power and network cabling run through the rack or we would see a mess of cables all over.
