Our server racks & cabinets
Whether running a small business or a large enterprise, effective data storage and access are essential for company operation. A common solution is a dedicated data server for in-house hosting of client data, website back-end database or application environment.
A computer server rack is an essential part of any network. It is its physical backbone that sits at the center of the system. It has to be stable, secure, yet easily interchangeable. Since most servers require non-stop network operation and access, using quality server enclosures for your IT equipment and data centers is essential.
Server enclosure types
There are two main types of network racks, each having its advantages and best use-case scenarios:
- open frame racks
- server cabinets
Open server racks, besides having simpler construction and thus being more budget-friendly have the major benefit of easy access and wiring. They also allow natural heat dispersal, essentially levelling the unit’s temperature with that of the room.
Cabinet-type of server racks allows for precise control of temperature range in data centers as they can be fitted with an air control system, usually consisting of a number of fans. They can also be fitted with a lock and key for greater security. Finally, since servers tend to produce noise that increases with the size of the unit, this type of rack can be made sound-proof, as do several of our new models. Server cabinets for network, in turn, come in several types, each offering its own advantages:
- floor-standing rack cabinets can often be handled without additional installations, much like a regular computer, with greater ease of access
- wall-mounted rack cabinets are more space-efficient as they can be installed in unused spaces and also be more physically isolated from the human environment, granting the possibility of extra protection and security as well as more precise control of temperature and noise levels.
Computer server rack dimensions
Using enclosures of standard dimensions and type greatly facilitates the process of installation, maintenance and repairs, while also making the process of upgrading more seamless. There are several common sizes of server racks that are most widely used by businesses worldwide. The industry standard, however, is a storage cabinet that is 19 inches wide, rack mount rails being 17 3/4″ (480.85 mm) apart and with a new shelf, section added every 1.75″ (44.45 mm) in height. Each section is called a rack unit (commonly abbreviated as U or RU). The height is usually measured in its increments and expressed as a multiple of a single rack unit. For example, 4U or 4RU means that the enclosure is 7″ in height (1.75″ X 4).
We build our server boxes in all common types of height (6U, 9U, 12U, 15U, 18U) and depth: (6″, 14″, 18″, 21,5″, 24″, 27,5″). Furthermore, the rails are internally adjustable to accommodate special network equipment of the cabinet or custom cabling solutions.
