10-14" deep 1U or 2u.. If 1u, 2 internal drive bays is fine. If 2u, must have 3-4 hot swap bays, 350watt power supplies.. EVERYTHING must be on the front of the case, in terms of the back of the motherboard, power adapter, ethernet, kvm, etc..
I'd like to buy in an initial quantity of 50-100 depending on the volume pricing.
Anybody know of a place that would have cases like this, or perhaps a contract case manufacturer?
Originally posted by lostpacket rackable systems will put everything in the front of the case on a custom order for you.
I'm actually seriously considering them.. In my other life, I'm an infrastructure architect for a mid-sized marketing company, and we do a lot of business with one of rackable's biggest resellers.. I'm hoping to use that relationship to get some good pricing for myself depending.. Trying to get the funding together to make a 100 server purchase and get some good pricing.
