If you are a geek like me you wouldn’t mind having your own server rack in your home. Why settle to the single server that sits in the corner when you could have a mini farm.
I just recently got my hands on a used 19″ 47U server rack. Assembly is difficult in a house, but I think we would all agree that its worth it.
The rack has 6 servers in it. “Six?” you say, well every server runs at least 2 Virtual servers. Now I cannot afford to convert my mid tower servers into rack-mountable server, but I did stack them on shelves. It gives you the same look as the rack mounts.
My router, running IPCOP IOS, has been put in a modded MMAC-Media center chassis. The RJ-45 ports are not functional but the LED’s are.
