Interesting...

1000 computers, assume it takes 30 seconds to remove from the box and 
walk to the rack. that's 30,000 seconds, or about 500 minutes.. call 
it 8 hours.  Assume you've got 10 racks and 10 people, so you get 
some parallelism... an hour to unpack and rack one pile.


What wasn't shown in the video.. all the plugging and routing of 
network cables?
