Sever tour: Cable management

The back of one of our racks showing how the cable management arms can reduce the amount of cable clutter in the back of a rack thus improving airflow.

A close-up view of the cable management arms behind a HP DL380g5 server. We prefer to tie cables down with Velcro instead of cable ties – Velcro is much easier to work with when re-cabling work needs to be done.

Cable management arms can be easily swung back providing access to ports on the back of the server.
