The Last Jedi Home Network Rack

This has to be the end.

Started with 5U, then 9U before pushing through the Spinal Tap limit and hitting 12U for my current rack. Thought that would be enough but here I am, starting to build a new 16U rack and (for the first time ever) it will be fitted with go-faster-wheels:

So far I have bolted the rack together, dropped in a new UPS and started to fit the dumb accessories. My current rack is still up and running and needed for work so sequencing the down-time for the things that will be moved over will be a challenge.

I could do a story of the build if anyone is interested. I'm in the UK where space for home racks and associated cabling is always at a premium, so everything about my rack builds to date have size (especially depth), noise and thermal management as the main considerations.

But I must stop at 16U. 🙃

I'm not sure which is more impressive, the rack or that neatly organized toolkit :)

My wife accuses me of repeatedly buying the same tools because I always lose them.
I need to "streamline" my operations. Time to unleash the full power of Synology's streamlining capabilities.

(Yeah I know. I've unleashed it before but it got interrupted. But this time I'm streamlining the unleashing of the streamlining. Stand by).

That's my 'electrical' bag, rather than my 'network' bag....

...shouldn't have needed it but I had a slight oops moment with the house electrics when I attempted the test fit of the new empty rack into the network cupboard.

Not the best of starts. 😱
