Submission + - Server densities hampered by depths

BDPrime writes: "With all this talk about server density — fitting more power into the same box — there's one factor in the equation that some people forget about: server depths. Yes, it's a problem. While vendors build servers that can fit more processors and more cores into a 1U server rack space, the problem is that many of their products are so deep that they stick out the front of the racks, forcing data centers to space the racks farther away from one another, which takes up valuable floor space. Anyone else have this problem?"
