Rack-mount? ... We don’t need no stinkin’ rack-mount

This photo tweeted out yesterday by Barracuda Networks co-founder Michael Perone begged a few questions, chief among them being, “Huh?”

A company spokesperson replied to my inquiry with this explanation:

“It is the former switch for Bigeye, Barracuda’s largest conference/training room.  Earlier this year, we began a total renovation (both inside the building and outside). During the renovation, a new wall was built in that area – and the switch ended up getting stuffed in the ceiling (no one will admit to it!) -- just above the new conference room.

 “Of course, the plan is to recable and replace the switch altogether. Renovations continue. And as you can see, the switch is functional.”

It’s functional. I’m shocked no one wanted to take credit.
