    My guys just informed me that its all down to the power allocation per cabinet. Our GS2 site currently has 8KW per cab, so we install with no gaps. High Density. If you have lower power allocations, then you will most likely need a 1U gap between hardware.
    It has everything and nothing to do with power

    If you don't have enough power to be densely packing your racks, don't put as much tin in there. If you space out your tin, it isn't going to save power (unless you are doing this over ALOT of racks, so much so that it is affecting air flow).

      If you have gaps, you should install blanking panels to fill them! ;-)
