Companies that have a large number of servers will want to keep these in a secure location with adequate air flow. In such an instance, purchasing one or more 42U server cabinets would be the best option.
Features and Amenities
42U rack server cabinets come in various sizes and styles; however, those who are looking for a versatile, top quality model may want to consider Rack Model 151. This particular server cabinet has adjustable shelves, doors and sides and is compatible with Dell, Hewlett Packard, IBM and other common servers. Updated locks can be provided on request and casters are included to ensure that these cabinets can be easily moved as and when needed.
Installation and Use
Setting up a 42U server cabinet is not difficult. To start with, look around your office and choose the best spot for your new cabinet. Such a spot should be accessible and located in an area that is neither too hot nor too cold. Make sure there are electrical outlets nearby, as plugging all your servers into one or two extension cords is never a good idea.
You can select either an open frame server cabinet or a fully enclosed one. Both cabinet types meet EIA standards and OEM air flow requirements. Once you have purchased the cabinet of your choice, adjust the shelves as needed so that servers fit into the cabinet comfortably and can easily be moved if need be. All server cabinets are shipped fully assembled, saving you the time and hassle of having to put a cabinet together from scratch.
There are many reasons why a company would need a large number of servers. Data storage companies, web hosting companies and other firms utilize servers to store vast amounts of important information. Keeping this information in an easily accessible yet safe manner is very important, which is why purchasing a server cabinet can be a very good idea. Such cabinets not only protect your valuable servers from dust, dirt and extreme temperatures but also help to consolidate office space, making it easy for you to arrange your office in a professional, organized manner.
