I find the racks creates a cleaner and professional looking computer room.
The cables are neatly in order for easy tracking and access to the servers
if setup right is great from both front and back.  I've designed quite a few
server rooms from as large as the Navy to as small as a single rack and it
is the only way to go.  I use MFB racks because of their standards.

Hi everyone,
Do any of you manage, or at least work nearby a server room which
doesn't use equipment racks?

I'm considering rearranging our server room, and have come to a
crossroads. Amongst other decisions, I need to choose whether to
continue with our simple shelving approach, or start using equipment
racks. I have experience with the latter, but effectively none with
the former, so I'm hoping someone out there can offer me a grand tour.

Do any of you who've got one within 20km of Perth CBD, reckon you
could give me a peek at your rackless - or only partially racked -
server room? I'm not looking for the perfect example of such a setup,
just another perspective, because ours has grown and evolved to a
pretty poor state!
