Mounting Nexus 7K

Recently purchased 2 Nexus 7009 Chassis for our datacenter. We are wanting to mount side by side in two post racks. Is this a supported mounting config since the 7009 uses side to side airflow. The clearance between the chassis is approximately 7 inches.

From the site prep guide:

Required clearances between the Cisco Nexus 7009 chassis and the edge of its rack or interior of its cabinet are as follows:

11  inches (27.9 cm) between the side of the chassis and the interior of  the cabinet or the clearance area for the next rack or cabinet (required  for side-to-side airflow with all types of racks or cabinets).
