    Server Racks

    Hey All,

    We are getting the basement converted at home and it will be my Office/Man cave.

    As part of the work I'm redoing my home network and will have need of somewhere to store some servers.

    I dont want a full rack but thinking of something 6u -12u My current server is 450mm Deep but In the duture I may add more deeper ones so ideally need 600mm deep.

    Has anyone had any experience getting smaller racks? Where did you get it from ?

    Thats what i have for the kit i have. When i manage my rig will move into a 4u rack case and will be put in there.

    Its heavy, its bulky, but it won't fall to bits, ever; it will be about long after i am nothing but dust.
