Having a server rack at home

A couple of years ago I bought a server rack cabinet to have at home in my apartment. The idea was that the rack would help me get rid of the mess of cables and unsound open server chassis I had at the time.

I bought the rack and learned a lot about how to build server racks.

It didn't solve any of my problems though. In fact, since the rack didn't actually fit very well in the space I had available in our appartment, the mess only increased, and made it harder to service my equipment. A rack cabinet needs access from both the front and back sides to be convenient.

I was fun while it lasted, but today I dismantled the thing. Good by home server rack cabinet!
