    A small datacenter build and other projects

    Huh? UCS chassis are rack mountable. From an infrastructure management standpoint UCS is the the way to go. Best investment our company has ever made.

    Small datacenter build-out

    I would agree on the CRV statement. You have the space to extend the rack row for 2 of them if you remove the DS unit. Otherwise if your building can supply chilled water you can go that route. I use APC in row chilled water units and they are great.

    Netflix Secretly Cropping Movies?

    Its not like people watch stuff on netflix for the image quality anyways. If you are that big of a cinophile that something like this pisses you off then buy it on bluray so you can see it in proper cinescope format.

    single cable vs multi-cables

    I hope you are using Plenum rated cable if you are running it through air ducts. If not it can create very poisonous gasses if it ever catches fire and now it is blowing around your house since it is in the air ducts.

    LOL @ the people who don't understand broadcast video in this thread. Have fun trying to edit a 4k video stream when it is stored on a SAN with your thunderbolt adapter. Fiberchannel is alive and well in big production houses. And to answer whoever asked yes a decent SAN can saturate several...

    flat ethernet cables ??

    They will work fine, but are more susceptible to interference and crosstalk. I would keep them to short distances if you really need them.

    PWs when you die?

    Put all your logins in a KeePass file. Put the master password to the KeePass file in an envelope in a safety deposit box. List the envelope in your will as to who you want to have your passwords. You could even go as far as to keep a copy of the KeePass file in your safety deposit box.

    Training Vouchers

    We have a bunch of training vouchers that I have to use up before we renew our EA with Microsoft. Where are you guys doing your training with your vouchers? I don't believe I can redeem vouchers on CBT or Train Signal or the like can I since they went to a subscription based model?

    Network pics thread

    everything is redundant and hot swappable, even the backplanes. Also generally you have more than one chassis, and the shared fabric between the cabs will move the failed units to other blades in another cab.

    Cradlepoint Routers

    Used to use them. Hate them. They are very picky about what air cards they work with. The newer ones might be better but the ones I used a couple years back were shit. Personally I would just get a dual WAN router and buy a backup dsl or cable line. It will be much faster too.

    Talk to me about Cisco UCS

    We have 4 UCS blade enclosures here. AMA. Probably my favorite feature of the UCS is the ability to move service profiles from blade to blade. This moves the physical server installed on the blade to another blade, but not only that it also moves the MAC address of all the adapters so as...

    Cisco question.

    How is the port on the HP configured? Normally from Cisco to Cisco I would run a trunk port. Keep in mind that a trunk port in Cisco lingo =/= trunk port in HP lingo. From your Cisco port config it looks like a single access vlan port, but if the HP is passing multiple vlans this could...

    Looking for a 10gbe Switch.

    Is this only for connecting your SAN to some servers? If so have you considered fibre channel instead? It can be cheaper and faster depending on how you go. If you must use ethernet physically how close are the boxes? You could look into using a cx4 cable instead of utp or fiber cabling...

    Cisco related educational books or e-books?

    Todd Lammle's CCNA books are good. So are the Cisco Press books obviously. I recommend 2 or more sources of reading. Buy the books used on Amazon and you can get several different books for the price of one new one at the bookstore.

    Cellular WAN Routers

    Opengear cellular stuff is tip top quality. The other thing to keep in mind is operating temperature range. Some of the Opengear units will run at -20 or 30C. Most consumer stuff like cradlepoint would not.
