Need a datacenter rack but don’t have one? Never fear, someone figured out that the Ikea “Lack” side tables work perfectly with 19″ hardware like Ethernet switches.

The LackRack is the ultimate, low-cost, high shinyness solution for your modular datacenter-in-the-living-room. Featuring the LACK (side table) from Ikea, the LackRack is an easy-to-implement, exact-fit datacenter building block. It’s a little known fact that we have seen Google engineers tinker with Lack tables since way back in 2009.

The tongue-in-cheek LackRack website offers a number of tips and hints, some of which are (seem?) serious.
