Evaluating a server rack purchasing decision is a multifaceted quality and cost assessment which includes features such as: enhanced thermal management, expandability, multi system compatibility, structural integrity, security, and compliance to internationally recognized standards
Server Rack Thermal Management
The type of server racks chosen should depend on the cooling methods used in the environment where the server racks are to be deployed. With the heat generated by current denser technologies such as Blade Servers, understanding the role that server racks play in the complete data center cooling strategy is essential to the total cost picture. With the cost of energy skyrocketing, the cost of electricity and cooling in the data center can exceed the cost of the equipment itself.
Flexibility / Expandability of Server Racks / Equipment Cabinets
The flexibility for customers to customers to "build their own" server rack by using the frame size needed and adding the components from a broad range of options is of great value to many IT managers. With rapidly changing network environments, datacenter managers also place a high premium on server racks that can be bayed together at time of installation, or sometime in future, providing users with expansion capability to match their needs.
The Breadth of Available Server Rack Options & Accessories
With rapidly changing IT requirements, datacenter managers need to make their server rack purchase decisions with an eye to future network changes and additions. The more options and accessories are available with a given server rack line, the more flexibility and intrinsic future value is built into the product. Among the top considerations are:
Server Rack Shelving:
Examine options such as adjustable or fixed server shelves with
four-point mounting; sliding
keyboard shelves with 2-point
mounting; vented, heavy-duty, or cantilever shelves; and media shelves.
Top and Side Panels: Panels keep equipment clean and offer security. Options include perforated slots for added ventilation, grommet holes for supplementary cable management pathways, and mounting for exhaust fans. Side panels are often available in several options: solid fixed, solid removable, and louvered.
Server Rack Mounting Rails:
In addition to the standard two sets of mounting rails, additional sets
of rails are frequently
needed to accommodate different
depths and facilitate rack loading. Most major server rack manufacturers
recommend rails with square holes and cage nuts.
- Server Rack Anti-tip Feet, Casters, Levelers: Server rack Anti-tip feet options are essential to stabilize mid-to top-heavy loaded racks, casters help maneuver racks in the datacenter, and levelers are used to ensure that the server racks are leveled.
Server Racks Standards Compliance
For easy integration into existing systems and for environmental reasons, it is crucial for server racks to conform to standards such as EIA-310-D, RoHS, IEC-60297-2, etc.
Server Racks Security
In high security organizations and collocation environments, proper server rack security is paramount. Doors and side panels must be equipped with locks. Security panels for bayed server racks must also be available.
Safety Considerations when Buying Server Racks / Equipment Cabinets
When buying server racks, IT managers should pay significant attention to the weight bearing testing of the product and to the recommended load limits. These tests establish upper limits to the amount of weight a server rack can safely support. Static tests are conducted with the rack standing still. Dynamic tests are conducted by physically moving the server rack while under load. In order to pass the tests, the server rack must not only have no structural failure, but its critical dimensions can flex from their original position no more than the QA established strict limits.
