Selecting a rack that is right for your business and application could be a difficult task. The reason behind is the long list of different hardware available. In this article, we will discuss one Dell OptiPlex 9020 USFF PC, which is one of the best for server racks. 

Things to Consider When Selecting an IT Rack

Here are the things you should consider when selecting an IT rack:

Rack Size: It is crucial to pick the correct dimensions. It makes sure that you use floor space efficiently taking both present and future requirements in account. Servers need greater depth racks than usual industrial enclosures. Switches and routers increase cabling requirements. 

When it comes to wider racks, you have room for cabling even in the zero U space. It is in the area between the 19-in mounting system and the sidewalls that facilitates in moving, adding, and changing.

Flexibility: You can reduce setup time and labor costs with the help of adjustability power of the 19-in. mounting system. You may have to adjust 19-in. rails to avoid equipment or cabling interference with the doors or other installed hardware.

Cable Management: Cable entry and egress points should be positioned for easy access to equipment. Also, they should be of sufficient size to support the electrical and data cabling.

Accessories:  It is more than important to optimize hardware and maximize efficiency. There are two basic categories of in-rack accessories. First is airflow management, and second is cable management. The duty of airflow management is to prevent hot air emitted by IT equipment from blending into the cooled air at the front of the rack. Cooling costs make up a total 40% of IT energy costs. It is best to direct the chilled air solely to the IT equipment to protect the equipment and decrease energy costs.

Security: With the rise of IP-based controls, vulnerabilities are also increasing. Rack is the first line of defense in protecting the value of equipment. The same goes for processes they enable.

Logistics: Remote integration and testing can help you speed up deployments and maintain the consistency of design. Another benefit is reduction of onsite troubleshooting. Yet, you should be careful in considering the in the shipment of integrated rack. Proper packaging is critical in protection of rack and equipment housed inside.
