The museum has allocated part of a collection room for server space. I am posting a few pictures to track the progress of that project so far.

Here are the racks the day we first rolled them into place. We are using the 42U APC NetShelter 750mm wide SX (AR3150) enclosures. The extra width allows for easier cable managment within each rack.

Unpacking rack and server accessories makes a lot of clutter:

We ordered standard APC 2200 VA UPS (SUA2200RMUS) and swapped out the back power output plate with one that supports a twist-lock plug. The full-height Power Distribution Units (PDU) that we will install in each rack require a twist lock.

Swapping the backplate was very easy. Each UPS also received a network management card:

To reduce clutter inside each rack, we'll be trying our best to use the "correct" length of power cord and network cable. We ordered the short power cords of various lengths from PCH Cables (http://pchcables.com).

After our last day of work, we managed to have all of the UPS units racked:

The next bit of work will be coordinating the electrical and network cabling contractors.
