#TechNetTidy Competition

How tidy is your physical environment? Have you any cabling left lying around or temporarily put in place which has now become 'live'?

Being the curious cat's we are, we thought it would be fun to see a few photo's of your server rooms. Chaos or Clean? To find out we have decided to run a monthly competition, kicking off this month we want to see just how chaotic or well maintained our readers keep their server cabinets.  

Prize ‘bundles’ (bundles I hear you say… yes bundles) awarded to both – ‘Tidy’ and ‘Untidy’ server cabinets each month. 

 Type 2 - Super Server Sammy 

  So are you a ‘Super Server Sammy’?



Type 1 - Chaotic Cabled Colin



  Or are you a ‘Chaotic Cabled Colin’?

    Is that a picture of you with a mug of coffee in your network room?  Isn't that a bit risky?  You know; liquids, critical electrical infrastructure…?
