Server Room Halloween Horrors

Posted by

Okay, so what I’m about to talk about isn’t exactly linked to Halloween, in fact it’s not connected at all, but I think you’ll agree the images do show one or two horrors. We certainly wouldn’t want our server racks or equipment to look like the shocking images captured below.

When we take on new clients, we expect that the previous IT department, whether internal or outsourced, will have had a different way of doing things. As such there is always a transition period which often involves a certain degree of ‘tidying up’ while we migrate to our way of working. However, even after seven years of operating, we are still astonished at how some IT departments run their server rooms and more specifically how they manage and maintain, or not, their IT equipment.

Here’s a few of my favourites that our technicians have captured over the years. If you think you can beat them, please email me on [email protected] and I’ll happily add yours to the collection.

Pick a cable, any cable

Unplug the blue cable you say

Hmm, why is Google offline

In need of some TLC

Now, here’s a few examples of what happens to the server racks once one of our technicians gives them the Priority One treatment.

It’s quite the transformation, I think you’ll agree.
