in my case, it takes 12U for both the MDD and its array of disks, and it's not stupid if you consider how irritating is when people can access a computer without authorization: rackmount is mandatory! :D

The rackmount kit for an HP 7937 hard drive included a small crane that fastened to the top of the rack. I shit you not!

This kit can be built, it requires good skills at soldering steel tubes and plates.
Maybe it will cost a quarter.

It’s just cut sheet metal and bolted together. Any decent (or even not so decent) welder could make you a better version for under an hour. Including paint.
