glass walled server room

i am after photos of good looking server rooms so i can steal ideas!

we are moving office and setting up a hi-tech data center (smallish - only 10 racks) but want to show it off to customers, potential recruits, investors, etc) and would like to get some ideas.

must be neatly bundled and run in an orderly manner.

locate your patch panels and switches right next to each other so you can get by with shorter cables.

Of course, rack mount servers are always sweet.

Check this out.

Good pictures of what you DON'T want to end up with. As well as some nice looking racks.

Their patch organiser can work but you need to make sure your equipment layout will accomadate using their management panels.

They offer network layout planning as part of their service.

I am not affiliated with them, but I did get a very quick and comprehensive response to an inquiry about their products.
