In a previous story, I showed What NOT to do in your server room. Over the past year I have been able to improve that server room a little bit. In addition to a general rack cleanup effort, I installed a whole new rack with square holes and plenty of cable management. The following pictures show the results.

Here are the racks from the front:

The new rack is a square-hole open frame rack from Rack Solutions (http://www.racksolutions.com/server-r...sures.html).

This is cable management of our SAN and virtualization infrastructure in the new rack:

We added a second vertical cable organizer so we could keep power on one side and data cables on the other. I think these are great racks for the money but just make sure you budget for a few rolls of hook and loop / Velcro tape.

I have never used a KVM (Keyboard Video Mouse) console system that did not fail occasionally... and when is the problem noticed? When we urgently need console access! I like these rolling Ziotek Aluminum Mobile Computing Workstation carts since they make it easy to get a keyboard, video, and mouse up and down the aisle and to either side of the server racks.
