i have recently got 2 more new server racks and have put a little order to them. Only got six of them to fit on the one side wall so the other one is sitting in my garage. Bought another ibm server because i really do like them and wanted to have a spare. Downfall was i had to add longer network cables and that really makes my fingers sore untwisting the wires and separating them to fit in the rj45 jacks for that many machines. my home server room and repair area. I have a total of 11 server racks with the ML series and DL series of hp servers and some misc ones i have built. I have 3 servers that are setup as an RIS server and WDS server. Two servers do video for my 25 security cameras around the house and others run web services and ftp services. Some are setup up with many hard drives that hold computer images for clients computers that i work on part time. One server also records my tv shows and sends them up to my television upstairs. My small network rack has 3 24 port switches that ties in with 4 other 16 port switches located in other parts of the house. I use 10 – 4 port belin kvms and 2- 8 port kvmsto reduce the number of keyboards mice and monitors needed. It adds about 2500.00 a year to my electric bill I guestimate. If you can afford the servers you can afford the electricity for those that keep asking.
