The time has come this year to reconfigure my 44U rack server.
1. do I break it down and go with 22U and consolidate?
2. replacement of my edge routers?
3. update power protection or not?
Easy questions with answers if you are like me, always expanding and compressing.
For #1, I will relocate all my 2U and 4U servers to the bottom of the rack since I am adding storage which is heavy.
For #2, I will get with SonicWall and consider trade-in and trade-up since I have: 2 each Cisco RV 320, 1 each TZ210 Wireless-N, 1 each Cisco SOHO, 2 each TZ100, 2 each Cisco RV 4000, 2 each FVS318
For #3, The APC power protection slab is good. Trade-in or trade-up time? It can handle 3 hours at 25% load, 2 hours at 50% load, 1 hour at 100% load.
