When you are building a new server system for one of your clients, you are probably planning on buying at least one computer cabinet to house their servers. Servers have evolved over the years and many of today’s servers are designed to take up only 1U-4U of space in the racks. For the most part this was done so that you could get more servers in a single rack, but it did create a new problem.
The Wrong Computer Cabinet Can Cause Their Servers to Overheat
The latest blade style servers are deeper than the older taller units and because of this they tend to run much hotter. If the computer cabinet you choose does not allow for plenty of airflow by being deeper than those designed for older servers, you could end up with significant overheating and subsequent damage to your servers. You need to always be sure the cabinets you choose are made to accommodate the servers you will be using.
