Server Rack

Tue Jan 07, 2014 4:55 pm

Hello Pi users!

I have a little question. I am looking for cases, huge cases.
A server rack would be awesome.

I need a case for multiple pi's, like 4.

Does anyone know where to get them?

4 options:

1) 1U blank + 1U tray e..g.that used for hlding keyboards without a slide, and drill holes and mounts as required to fit

2) 1U mini-itx case (60-120UKP), with custom mounting

3) Custom manufactured e.g http://artica.cc/blog/2013/11/07/fm-str ... eport.html for 18 pi in 6U (as 1 row of 10, and 1 row of 8 -the last two is for power). The pi cards are hotswappable.

4) 3D printing

Like Marked said - cheap/easy is and a powered hub.

Or you could try salvaging faulty switches or other existing rackmount equipment.
