If you work in the IT field, you might already know how important your server cabinets are. After all, your cabinets ensure many different factors of organization, efficiency, and performance for both your customers and staff.

Part of keeping your business operating in a smooth manner involves the proper maintenance of your equipment, especially when it comes to a server cabinet. With a server cabinet, additional space is provided for quality cable management and front-to-rear airflow solutions.

If you are interested in preventing your servers from crashing, here are a few rack and cabinet tips.

  • Consider customized solutions. With customized server cabinets, your specific power and cooling needs will be met. Before choosing a customized server cabinet, think about what your specific  shelving, top panels, side panels, mounting rails, and feet options will be. 
  • Look into cooling solutions. When overheating occurs, servers can crash quickly. It will be highly beneficial to you and your company to take preventive measures before they happen.
  • Organize your cables. Having an array of tangled cables will cause a lengthy amount of confusion. In order to keep your IT business operating in a functional manner, try to label your cables and keep track of them.
  • Determine what the height of your server racks should be. Proper server storage depends on height. Racks have been getting taller, wider and deeper according to IMS Research, which is a part of the need to place more servers into data centers. Typically, a standard server rack is seven feet high and can fit roughly 42 units of equipment in a 19-inch space. Width also plays an important role when utilizing your rack space. The standard server cabinet width is 600mm.

These four tips will help to keep your servers running in an organized and efficient manner. In order to keep your servers from crashing, having properly heated and accurate storage conditions are essential.
