We thought it would be a good idea to share photos from our operations as it is said ‘a picture is worth a thousand words’. This is the first photo we would like to share from our data center.
These are latest Supermicro servers we racked for a customer. You can see two Cisco switches on the top. One is the access switch for this particular rack and the other one is private switch for backups. The switches front is on the other side of the rack for easy access to network cabling. The four servers are 1U in size, each with four hot-swap slots for hard disks that you can see in the picture (clicking those little red buttons will open the slot to pull out the disks). Typically these servers are Intel Xeon Quad / Hex Core with 32 to 96GB RAM (memory).
