Choose Your Server Rack Carefully

As you are drawing up the plans for your server room, you are going to have to take a lot of equipment into consideration. One of the most important items you need to think very carefully about before you go too far is the type of server rack you plan to install all of your servers into. Your servers are going to generate a lot of heat and if your racks are not big enough to provide adequate ventilation you could end up with major problems.

The Best Server Rack Has Built in Warning Sensors and an Alert System

Unless you plan to babysit your servers 24 hours a day, you may find that a server rack that features a built in monitoring system may be your best choice. In most cases, these racks feature a built in system that monitors both temperature and humidity. If either of them go beyond established parameters, you are sent an immediate email alert so that you can address the problem.
