Here at MNX Solutions, we’re busy setting up a brand new data center for our hosted services. A large part of our business involves consulting, which means we’re exposed to a ton of different customer environments and an equal number of schemes for naming equipment…not all of them good. It’s a problem that goes back as far as computers have existed, and everyone has their own opinion on the “best” way to name hosts. Most methods start out fine at the beginning, but quickly become unwieldy as infrastructure expands and adapts over time.
