I think all racks from Sun come like that. Our E4800 came rack mounted
in the same type of rack as E6800. It was tied down with grade 10
hardware on two heavy steel tracks and nice ramps with a metal bracket
and side ramps. Later style racks came with plain cut 2x4 ramps, no
sides and velcro to hold to the pallet instead of the bolted metal
brackets in the case of the E4800/E6800.
