I came across a really good blog article posted by Matt Simmons, author of the Standalone Sysadmin blog which gives any budding  System Administrator a really useful insight into the concepts, practicality and pitfalls of Server racks and rackmounting, a subject that is rarely covered in books or training course.

Thank you Matt for putting “finger to keyboard” and giving us all an insight into the lessons we all learned early on in our career’s
