Comment: If only Rackable boxes worked (Score 1) 472

by sneakerfish (#27256839) Attached to: The 100 Degree Data Center

I have a few Rackable boxes now in our normally cooled data center. They are used as high density storage servers so they have a lot of disk drives, but they loose drives at a much higher rate than our other Dell and Supermicro based clones. You have to tread lightly around them because the slightest vibration will cause them to reboot. Yes they are properly mounted, etc.

Rackable == cheaply made
