Server Rack Solutions For Offices With Non-Dedicated IT Space

Posted by Gaw Technology on 3/19/2013
Pop quiz: Who/what works harder in your office, your employees or your server?

Trick question -- sorry about that. The answer is both. Both your employees and server equipment work hard and deserve to have spaces that enable them to perform their duties. In a perfect world, every employee would have an office with a door and pricey computer equipment would be safely housed in a dedicated, climate-controlled, locked room.

But as you know, ours is far from a perfect world.

So, you have a small office space in which you have to house humans, desks and computer equipment. Won’t it be loud, crowded and dangerous?

It doesn’t have to be! There are server rack solutions that enable both your workers and workhorse servers to work in the same space seamlessly.

Whether you have a branch office, small office or just don’t have the time or the budget to build a dedicated IT zone, consider custom server racks and cabinets to safely house your equipment. With custom enclosures, you’ll accomplish the following:

  • Reduce your capital costs by avoiding construction
  • Prevent wasted space
  • Keep your business agile

In this technological age, there really is no such thing as a standard rack. They come in all shapes, sizes and colors, fully customized to your needs and budget.

Server rack cabinets are great solutions for organizing multiple servers in a small space, securing your expensive server hardware and managing many pieces of equipment using a single monitor and keyboard.

Server cabinets are offered in various configurations with locking front and rear doors, heat exhaust fans, cable management and transparent doors. There are both floor standing server cabinets, as well as wall-mounted server racks. There are even racks that can fit underneath a desk!

You can add stationary and sliding shelves, storage compartments, wall mounts, power outlet strips, front access cable management systems and cooling devices like fan assemblies and blower units.

With the skyrocketing cost of commercial real estate, floor space is at such a premium that many data centers now pack a huge amount of technology into an increasingly small space. 

This high-density solution is only possible with well-designed cabinets and racks that not only provide efficient storage, but also protect, organize and reduce noise from working servers.

Imagine -- a quiet, effective server rack!

Silence that noisy equipment with an enclosure that offers sound insulation. Cabinets with noise protection are available in a variety of sizes to meet the needs of those with small spaces or those operating high-density server racks. 

Noise-reducing sever racks are also designed to help reduce the environmental impact of your server and network operations by lowering energy costs and your organization’s carbon footprint.

When selecting a data center enclosure manufacturer, be sure to pick one like Gaw Technology -- one that guarantees your finished product boasts flexibility and modularity, allowing you to refine and further customize your setup.

No space? No problem! Gaw Technology’s consultants are here to help you find the best cabinets and server racks for your small space needs. They will guide you every step of the way as you create a quiet data center that will enable employees and servers to function -- and flourish! -- in the same space.
