If you have been looking at purchasing a new rack enclosure for the servers and support equipment you are assembling for your business, there are a number of decisions and specifications that you need to consider before you make your purchase. One specification that seems to be forgotten more far too frequently is the weigh capacity of the rack that is being bought.
You Should Consider Buying a Server Rack with a Higher Weight Capacity
When you are not sure exactly how much weight you will be placing the new rack enclosure you are buying, it is a good idea to buy one that is rated for more weight than you think you are likely to ever have to deal with. This eliminates the risk of overloading a rack that is not rated for the weight of the equipment you have and watching your servers crash onto the floor and self-destruct.
Of all the details you need to be paying attention to when you are buying a new rack enclosure, the one that you need to pay the most attention to is how well it is set up for ventilation. Nothing can kill a server faster than allowing it to overheat and for one reason or another; this very important detail never seems to be on the minds of many enclosure manufacturers.
Avoid Rack Enclosures with Minimal Ventilation
You will find that there are a number of rack enclosure manufacturers who build their rack enclosure to meet the minimum ventilation requirements as set out by the various server manufacturers. While these enclosures might meet minimum standards, do you really want to risk thousands of dollars’ worth of equipment on minimum ventilation? All of our server enclosures have been designed to provide ample airflow to keep your servers nice and cool.
As you are looking at buying a new rack enclosure for the servers and support equipment you are putting together, you are going to be faced with a number of decisions and specifications to consider before you make your purchase. One spec that many technicians seem to forget more often than not is the weigh capacity of the rack they are buying.
It Is Better to Buy a Heavier Duty Rack Enclosure
If you are not sure how much weight you are planning to add to the new rack enclosure you are buying, you will find that it is far better to buy one that is rated for more weight than you think you are likely to ever add to it. This will eliminate the risk of overloading a rack that is not rated for the weight you have put in it and watching thousands of dollars’ worth of servers crash onto the floor and self-destruct.
