The RPi's are all housed in a nine drawer cabinet with rear exhaust fans. Each drawer has an independent 5V 10A power supply. There is a 48-port network switch in the rear of the cabinet to provide the necessary network fabric.
The HDDs are double-stacked five wide to fit 10 HDDs in each drawer along with five RPi 4's. A 2" x 7" x 1/8" aluminum bar is sandwiched between the drives for heat dissipation. Each drawer has a custom 5-port USB power fanout board to power the RPi's. The RPi's have the USB PMIC bypassed with a jumper wire to power the HDDs since the 1.2A current limit is insufficient to spin up both drives.
