No matter what name they go under or you choose to call them server racks are nothing more than enclosures that are designed to hold your servers in a secure location. Whether you choose to call them server racks, network equipment enclosure, network racks or server cabinets, they are all the same and as long as you buy the right one to fit in with your specific needs all is well.
Choosing the Right Size Server Racks for You Needs
When you are looking at the various server racks in our online catalog, you will find that there are two factors that are going to affect your final choice. These are the brand of equipment you are planning to use and how much equipment you are planning to install in each rack. You need to make sure you plan ahead and buy racks that leave you room for expansion or you may find that you end up having to replace them as you grow.
When the time comes to start shopping around for new server racks, keep in mind the fact that as you are looking at the different models, size definitely counts. In the IT equipment industry, you will find that the standard height for a server rack is 42U with each U measuring 1.75 inches thus the rack is 73.5 inches tall. You need to try and stick to units that meet industry standards unless you have a very specific reason not to.
Server Racks Offer Two Different Widths and Depths
In the IT industry you are going to find that there are two standard widths for server racks, the narrowest ones measure 19 inches and are more for computer and entertainment industry use. The wider 23 inch racks are intended more to be used in the heavy telecommunications industry usage. For many years the average depth for server racks was 20-25 inches, with the introduction of the blade server in recent years, new racks measuring 35-42 inches deep have become very common.

Cheap server racks are often efficient for smaller hardware and servers
Economical editions of server cabinets or cheap server racks are available in most styles that are similar to expensive models. Less expensive models are often smaller and more compact, and they may not have the ability to hold as much weight as more expensive models. Each model that we sell lists the weight capacity and the dimensions of hardware and components that can be stored in the server cabinet or rack.

We have hot deals on used server racks
Purchasing used server racks is often a great solution to getting the materials needed, while remaining cost efficient. Many of the used racks have been gently used for short periods of time, until companies changed the layout of their office and purchased new server cabinets or computer racks. Because racks maximize space and are sold in many different styles, it is not uncommon for a business to replace fairly new racks with replacements, if they remodel their computer layout or office plan.
Used server racks with great options
Racks are also sometimes replaced by companies who find that the layout that they have chosen is not working as they thought it would.
The time has come to add more servers to your system and you have been shopping for server racks to hold your new servers. The problem is that as you look around, you can’t help but notice the huge price range depending on where you are looking. While it can be tempting to simply go for the cheapest rack you can find, this is usually not the best alternative.
The Server Racks You Choose Must Be Built to Last
The main thing you need to keep in mind is that any server racks you buy, regardless of cost must be built to last. Although you may not be moving your racks or working on them frequently, you want racks that are not going to collapse over time with the weight of your servers or fall apart the first time you have to swap out servers. While you do not have to pay ridiculous amounts of money to get a good rack, avoid the ones that are priced at the bottom end of the scale as well.
If you are in the market for new server racks, you need to keep in mind that when you are looking at the different models, size definitely counts. In the industry, you will find that the standard height for a server rack is 42U with each U measuring 1.75 inches. It is highly recommended that you try to stick to units that meet industry standards unless you have a very specific reason not to.
Width and Depth Vary with Server Racks
There are two standard widths when it comes to server racks, the narrower ones measure 19 inches and are more for computer and entertainment industry use. The wider 23 inch racks are more for heavy telecommunications industry usage. Up until recently the average depth was 20-25 inches, but thanks to the introduction of the blade server, those measuring 35-42 inches deep are very common. The best way to find out what size racks you need is to measure all of your equipment before you order.
When you get right down to it, server racks are simply enclosures that have been designed to hold your servers in a secure location. Whether you call them server racks, network equipment enclosure, network racks or server cabinets, it really does not matter as long as you buy the right ones to fit in with your specific needs. Perhaps the most important thing to remember is that you have to buy are racks that your servers are going to fit into.
Deciding What Size Server Racks You Need
As you look at the different server racks in our online catalog, there are two factors that will affect the ones that you end up buying. These are the brand of equipment you are planning to use and how much equipment you are planning to put in each rack. Try to plan ahead and buy racks that leave you room for expansion or you may find that you end up back at square one before you are really ready to buy yet more server racks.
