Messiest datacenter

Stuart sent this link to the messiest datacenter ever. It actually looks pretty organized considering that there aren’t proper racks or housings for the motherboards. I’ve seen worse.

Though I have no pictures, a server room I once managed only had one air conditioner and that too on one side of the room, near the door. We had to improvise a ventilation system based on powerful small fans and a duct made out of garbage bags to get rid of the heat.

On another note, I was up in the Margalla hills a few nights back with some friends and someone commented on how much Islamabad resembles a server/router room from up there. It really is an awesome sight since the city is a well-lit, almost geometrical grid of roads and buildings.
