Server Racks / Cabinets & Open-Frame Racks
Data center racks organize IT equipment into standard-sized server cabinets for greater efficiency throughout the data center. Rack styles range from open-frame racks consisting of two or four mounting rails (called posts) without sides or doors to lockable enclosure cabinets with rails, front and rear doors and side panels.
- The height of a rack cabinet is measured in units designated by the letter U (each rack unit is 1.75 inches/44.45 mm) high; racks are available with capacities ranging from 2U to 58U
- Choose floor-standing racks with rolling casters or wall-mount racks for applications where floor space is limited or extra security is important
