SoftLayer Create Time Lapse of “Truck Day”

If you want to know what Truck Day is, it’s the day at Soft Layer where a mass amount of servers are delivered and installed within the day.

This time around Truck Day saw the delivery of 750 rack mountable servers and the whole process from delivery to installation was captured on video in a time lapse.

The video was captured by using three cameras that captured a single frame every 5 second. At the end of the day, the video was converted to play back at 20 frames per second which makes a video 3:36 long and shows the racks being unloaded, unboxed, checked, racked and cabled up.

Check out the video below to see the process. For more details of the process and how it’s all planned, check out the softlayer blog:
