That last photo, he just looks too excited holding those cables. Is there something you wish to tell us about him and his cables?

He probably knew he was close to being done and about to go party in NYC all night :slight_smile:

You guys rock. Seriously. That cabling is just perfect. I cannot compete with such cabling and awesomeness.

@HIVELOCITY Were the IPMI cards feeling blue?

cheesy jokes with dawgy at 2am!

checking for bad cables must be fun !

When the cable management is done right it makes troubleshooting so much easier.

Was hoping everyone would share their pics as well. Surely everyone has at least one good pic…

Here is more hardware porn to get you going. GPU server for an AI customer.

Reminds me of the time I bought a poweredge 2850 off of Craigslist. Powered it up and heard the “wind turbine”, put it in the closet and haven’t powered it up since :stuck_out_tongue:

I am going to keep bumping this thread with my pics until you guys start showing off your gear. Here are some pics of some of our dedicated server cabinets at the TPA1 data center. Live feed of TPA1 and TPA2 data center here Data Center Live Cam - Hivelocity Hosting. LA1 feed coming soon.

I reckon no one is going to show their gear. Keep bumping!

Hardware porn indeed. Those pics look as good as stock photos :+1:

Just noticed - first picture, third rack from the left, unit 27 - that does not look like a happy server

I just remembered that Hivelocity used to send us pics of our servers, that was really nice of them.

Dug these pics up from mails received in 2013, seems like an eternity ago:

We will go have a talk with it now and see if we can cheer it up.

Wow that is really cool.

Didn’t know you guys expanded to LA, I’ve been looking at some LA colo options, might need to add Hivelocity to the list.
