Dell Optiplex 7010 USFF: Specs and Compatibility

What are some of the basic rack options? 

What is the next step after deciding what type and size of rack you need? Well, there are some basic configuration options you have to consider. Of course, every option is not suitable for every rack. The rack type with the most options is floor-standing enclosures.


Mostly floor-standing rack enclosures come with front and rear doors. Their design is made to provide front-to-rear airflow. However, you can also configure them without doors. In most cases, we split the rear doors. The advantage is they reduce the clearance that we need to completely open them. It is also possible to split the front door, but it is not so common practice. 

Side Panels 

You can easily configure floor-standing rack enclosures, both with and without rack enclosures. Servicing the rack enclosure is also easy peasy since modular side panels are split into two pieces on each side. One of the greatest edges is the side panels. They improve the cooling efficiency. They do not let the hot air recirculate via the sides of the rack. Instead, they beautifully maintain direct front-to-rear airflow.


Mostly, floor-standing rack enclosures have come with a removable roof panel that has a number of cable access ports. In many cases, the roof also has attachment points for external cable managers. That includes cable ladders and cable troughs.

Casters and Levelers 

Casters and wheels are also one of the most important parts. They are connected at the bottom of the rack. These floor-standing enclosures come with casters that let you roll the cabinet over a shorter distance during the installation procedure. The role of sturdy feet called levelers starts when the cabinet is in its place. They support the weight of the cabinet and equipment in place of the casters. 

Levelers also let you adjust and level the rack on uneven surfaces. Depending on your needs, you can also equip the racks with larger and heavier casters that support even more weight and allow more mobility. Casters usually do not come with wall-mount cabinets and four-post racks. But if you want, you can add them. The casters easily adapt wall-mount racks to floor-standing and “roll-away” applications under desks, tables, or counters. 


There are keyed locks with rack enclosure doors and side panels. If needed, you can easily replace them with optional combinational locks. You need locking doors and side panels for some security standards, for example, the data security standard of the industry known as PCI DSS.

Hinged Wall Bracket 

The hinged wall bracket is also part of some wall-mount rack cabinets. The benefit is that convenient access to the equipment's rear panels and cabling since you can open the cabinet from the back. It needs more clearance than the same model without the bracket. So carefully decide if your preference is increased access or reduced depth.

Mounting Holes 

Two-post racks typically include round/threaded mounting holes. Four-post racks and enclosures typically include square holes, but some have round/threaded holes. Some vertical mounting rails include both types of holes on alternate sides. 


While most enclosures are black, white enclosures are much more famous these days. Their lightning requirements are lesser, they provide more visibility, and they also reduce the energy costs in larger installations.
