Today is my wife’s birthday, and I… bought a server rack.

I scored a great deal on Craigslist here around Houston that I couldn’t pass up. This thing is a beast. It’s a Dell Poweredge 2420 24U enclosure; 4’H x 4’L x 2’6”W, and it weighs 200lb empty. Luckily the people I bought it from helped me load it into the bed of the truck.

It also came with some PDU blocks, a lot of cables, several sets of rails for antiquated servers, and a KMM (which may or may not get used). The final assembled piece is beautiful. For now it’ll stow nicely in the laundry room until I can migrate my equipment into it.
