Storage servers use shelves, known as sleds, to secure hard drives in place. Sleds frequently include screws or more complicated latching mechanisms to grip storage drives. Such latching mechanisms can be tricky and time consuming for a human to operate and difficult to automate. This disclosure describes a storage-server sled that enables the automated loading and unloading of storage drives into server racks without the use of screws, latching mechanisms, or moving parts.
