Glad you covered this
Advanced rack and ToR cabling projects like these may not be as sexy as a new wearable, but they're important. Kudos Charlie for giving ElectroRack, Delta Computer, and CPS a shout out.

I'll strongly second Lorna's sentiment, since the tag line for InformationWeek is "Connecting the Busines Technology Community."  Way too much ink is spilled on the latest phone or consumer toy.  This topic is truly relevant; more like this, please!

Interesting to see an end-user company like Fidelity investing the time in this level of data center equipment. That's what it takes to get open source innovation. I wonder if there's enough appetite out there among companies to sustain and broaden the open hardware movement.
