Array Overview
The left-side cabinets (as viewed from the front) are referred to as racks onezero, one-one, and one-two, rather than racks ten, eleven, and
twelve.
Although it is possible to cable the array so that racks 10, 11, and 12 are on
the right (as viewed from the front), that configuration would not be supported.

Note that the DKCs are 1U larger than the DKUs.
There are up to 8 DKUs per DKC. Each DKU features up to 64 drives in front
and 64 drives in back, for up to 1024 drives per DKC.
There are only two cable lengths: one for DKU0 to DKU01 (for example, and
one for DKU01 to DKU02 (for example).
