We currently have our server room in a separate room about 20 feet away from our switching closet. I am building a new rack full of servers and I have a nagging debate on my mind. In order to connect the two rooms for optimal performance and redundancy with ease of management. I plan to run 8 cables to the switching closet from the server room. Should I connect those 8 cables to a patch panel in the server room and then to a patch panel in the switching closet and then connect them to the switch. Or should I just go server room switch, to switching closet switch?
