LackRack Makes Home Colocation More Affordable 4

Posted by samzenpus

An anonymous reader writes "The LackRack is the ultimate, low-cost, high shinyness solution for your modular datacenter-in-the-living-room. Featuring the LACK side table from Ikea, the LackRack is an easy-to-implement, exact-fit datacenter building block. It provides superior mounting for up to 8 U of 19" hardware, such as switches and other professional gear. Multi-shiny LackRack can also be painted to your specific preferences and the airflow is unprecedented."

LackRack Makes Home Colocation More Affordable

  • Interesting that the space between the legs is exactly 19 inches, but 1) the airflow is not "unprecedented", airflow up is blocked by a melamine board, 2) This leaves your server susceptible to the "pepsi syndrome", especially during parties, and 3) Woodscrews into beaver board does not constitute a secure mounting, especially after you pulled it out and put it back in a few times. There is a lot of torque on a pizza box that is supported only by screws through one edge.
  • ...if I put that in the living room! Also...most rack-mounted servers loud and heavy. They would likely break loose from those wooden legs.
