Network Cabling in SoftLayer Data Centers ... With Zip Ties?!?! ≡

"Cabling a SoftLayer Data Center Server Rack" ( surpassed 210,000 views, and it has sparked a healthy debate in the comments section. Why does SoftLayer use zip ties in our data centers? Don’t we know that zip ties are evil?! What happens if a single cable needs to be replaced?!?!

In this video, we document the process of how we restore physical connectivity when a network cable fails (which happens very rarely), and we show how long it takes to physically replace a network cable in one of our zip-tied bundles.
