After my slash dot many have asked about the cost and the amount of time I spendt building it.

 
 
 
Rack V1 Cost
Chipboard and screws 123,84 dkr
Rack fittings 566,25 dkr
 
 
Rack V2 Cost
MDF and hinges 290,00 dkr
Various wood 210,00 dkr
Rack fittings 207,00 dkr
 
 
Servers Cost
Aluminium sheets 2mm Freebie
Aluminium Handles Freebie
Aluminium rods Freebie
20x4 LCD displays Freebie
 
 

I have not included the price of the harddrives, power supplies and Motherboards.

 

The freebies are things I have scavenged from old thrashed hardware/electronics.

 
 
Time

As for the amount of time I have spent:

  • Figuring out an easy way to build the servers

  • Drawing up blue prints

  • Machining the parts

  • Building the servers

  • Fitting the hardware

  • Installing software

I have no idea, its alot more then 100hrs, but I never "punched in" as modding is more or less a hobby for me and I have learned a lot from this project.
