Rack and stack, part 1

We commenced the build on the new data centre yesterday. The backbone cabling is complete enough so that we were able to rack and stack the first of five cabinets, roll the new disk storage onto the floor, and power a few things up.

I'm a bit sore today from having to crawl under the floor to put power in. The hazards of getting old :-)

We are waiting for all the backbone cabling to be complete before we cable the servers in, so we can ensure the appropriate link lights come on. Meanwhile, we'll go back and rack the next cabinet as the cable contractors get through with it.
