Be Sure Your New Rack Enclosure Can Handle the Weight

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.
