The server room we saw was simply FILLED with cabinets like these. Each server is locked down inside the cabinet, the cabinet is locked, and the room the cabinet is in is locked. Lots of locks. Lots of servers. Some of 'em even run Linux! (The Phantasy Star Online server code runs on Linux, so the servers for it are Linux-based. Microsoft is more concerned with getting it right than with getting it all.)
