When are Four- post racks used?
Four-post racks allow for mounting rails to support equipment at the front and rear. These racks may be open in construction or enclosed by front and/or rear doors, side panels, or tops. Four-post racks can provide both robust support and security.
When are Two- post racks used?
Two-post racks provide just two vertical posts. Equipment can be mounted either via its front panel holes, or close to its center of gravity, depending on the design of the rack. Two-post racks are most often used for telecommunication installations.
What are the Applicable Standards for Server Cabinet design and manufacturing?
It is standardizing features like the Rack Unit, vertical & horizontal hole spacing, rack openings and front panel width for sever csbinets.
IEC 60297 (IEC 60297-3-100, -101, -102, -104, -105 and IEC 60297-5) standardize the dimensions and the mechanical structure of the 19 inch server cabinet.
What is the significance of the Server Cabinet Depth?
Server cabinet depth is important not only because it has to allow room for the depth of the particular equipment to be rack-mounted (deep servers vs. routers or switches), but also it has to allow sufficient room for cables as well as airflow.
What server cabinet options for front and rear doors are available?
Front as well as Rear doors are available in many different materials, sizes and with various ventilation options. Locking systems are also available on most doors. Choosing a ventilated front and rear door is key in air circulation by creating a front to back flow pattern.

What is the most economical Server cabinet cooling technique?
Our approach to efficient cooling of datacenter server cabinets begins with a sealed separation between the cold isle in front of the equipment row and the hot isle in the back of the equipment. The sealing between hot and cold is done at the front rail level of the server cabinet. We implemented this solution, for instance, for a wide variety of servers and Cisco routers: 2821, 7613, 3560E, 3845, 2911, 6509E, 4507R, 4510R, 4510E, 4900M.
Since the router is designed to intake cold air from the side, which is now left by our separation in the hot isle, we needed to create a duct that would connect the router's intake to the cold isle in front of the cabinet. We accomplished the whole task by designing a cold air intake plenum mounted under the router, and connecting this plenum through a duct to the intake on the side of the router.
