    BETT 2010 - Pimp your rack!

    Since the rack pictures never made it to the stand at BETT due to other things taking precedence, if you sent pictures for the displays how about posting them here so we can see?

    I must have missed the original thread - either that or forgotten...

    Any special criteria for these pics? or just snap away?

    There was a thread asking for pictures of your server racks in school for BETT posters.

    Snap away!

    The next addition to the server-room-in-a-box will be a 1u 4TB SAN using this chassis: LinITX.com - Travla TE-1160 Rackmount Barebone System
    Hmmm...storage goodness!
    I shall try and get a few pics posted tomorrow.

    If I were to buy that it would cost £1170 for 4TB. If I were to build it, which is much more fun, and run FreeNAS on it it would cost about £700.

    Good point. Plus it's a lot more fun building your own

    Be used at places like BETT, conferences etc and also shows off companies products who sponsor the forum so gives us a chance to see them in a working environment when we're attending an EduGeek conference or something. Also, it's a bit of fun to see what can be achieved?

    No. It's all a proof-of-concept. We did it to see if we could.
