   I'm all in favor of more development as far as weeding out the corner
   cases is concerned.  I just don't want one of those cases to be found
   on my production server.

   Physical security is their problem; just make sure you point that
   out so you're not on the hook for it.  The UPS is essential; power
   isn't terribly clean (from an IT perspective) where I work, and I'm
   not exactly in the backwoods of America.

   Make sure your rack has plenty of room for ventilation.  My only
   complaints about racks are too much server crowding and noise.
