Server Rack Requirements

Server Rack Requirements

Depending on your specific requirements, the size and type of server rack will differ significantly. A big factor in this decision not only includes the size of the installation but also, importantly, foreseeable growth factors. Whether it be a 1000 rack data centre build, a 10-20 rack commercial fit-out or even a home office upgrade, several needs must be met to ensure your installation meets the required specifications.

  • Strong, robust design to handle the required loads of equipment
  • Reinforced shelving is needed to handle heavy equipment safely, such as a UPS
  • Cable management provisions at sides, top, front and rear of the server rack
  • Cable entry holes at the top and bottom of server racks. Multiple entry holes required depending on installation
  • Cable management allowing free flow of air within the server rack to meet cooling requirements
  • Ease of cable access for moves, adds, and changes.
  • Ease of equipment access for removal, additions, or changes to equipment position.
  • Integrated power supplies within the frame of the server rack
  • Multiple positions within sliding rails for front and rear rail positioning
  • Lockable doors, top, and sides for security reasons
  • Clear doors for equipment identification without the need to access the server rack
  • Ventilated door provisions for airflow requirements
  • Air handling units placed at the bottom of the rack to bring in the cool air; and top of the rack to dispose of warm/hot air
  • Appropriate outdoor IP rating if required
  • Security door lock
  • Multi-point locking - if required
  • Installation of cable chimneys from top of the rack and through the ceiling to contain cables
  • Adjustable feet or castors for ease of positioning
  • Provision for appropriate cable and equipment labeling
  • 3-year Warranty
