I’m at it again but this time I’m shooting for 80, and yes, I’m that crazy. I’ll be using a 2-post relay rack with 10 single-sided shelves on one side (that’d be 9 Minis per shelf). This means I’ll deal with the following nightmares:
- 80 freakin’ power bricks, power cords
- 80 ethernet cables and no horizontal (or vertical even!) cable management trays
- 80 freakin’ power bricks
- Power cycle requests for non-remotely-management “servers“
Why someone can’t make me some better way to power 80 Mac Minis is beyond me. 50 Minis draws something around 15 Amps (@110V). Maybe I should look into powering this rack through induction? Or revive Tesla’s Wardenclyffe Tower?
