hopefully none of these server moves that people have been talking about
involved spinning disks. If they did, kit damage is one of the likely
outcomes - you seriously do not want to bump active spindles:
SSDs are a different story. In that case it's just a bit odd as to why
you wouldn't want to power down a system to physically move it - in the
sense that if your service delivery model can't withstand periodic
maintenance and loss of availability of individual components,
rethinking the model might be productive.
