Data centre racks play a crucial role in server rooms and computer rooms. A data center server rack is essential for storing your servers, UPS, and network infrastructure. They protect your IT equipment and ensure it runs at an optimal level. The term data centre racks are interchangeably used with cabs and cabinets. The units prevent problems with cable and airflow management while also preventing increased downtime and maintenance, which can be a problem when racks are sized incorrectly.
Range of Data Centre Racking Types
The rack centre can be enclosed or open like a shelf and are flexible and changeable. Their core roles are to optimise airflow as part of your temperature management strategy, organise cables with rack hosts, prevent tampering, and situate equipment so that it is easier to reach, inspect, and maintain. To aid this, they are paired with additional parts such as rails, blanking panels, power cords, and cable management systems, optimising data centre rack space.
Data centre racks have typical 1000mm deep dimensions by 600mm for servers or 800m wide for comms. There are various types of racks in data centres, including wall mount and floor standing. Typically, units are categorised as a network rack, Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) rack, Power Distribution Units (PDU), and data centre racks. State-of-the-art acoustic data centre server racks house network equipment and noisy servers situated in an office environment, with great aesthetics.
