While designing a data center, rack configuration is one of your major concerns. It is essential for reliable and efficient operation of IT equipment. In this article we will guide you how you can choose the right rack size and also highlight the specs and features of HPE Proliant DL60 Gen 9.
Height determines how many rack spaces are available for equipment, so it is an important consideration. That is why we even express the height in terms of available rack spaces. So, height is one of the most important considerations. It would be also great to find the external measurement for ensuring that the rack will fit through the doors in your facility.
42U, 45U, and 48U are the common heights for floor-standing racks and rack enclosures. Custom sizes are also available even up to 58U for some high-density data center applications. Also, you can leave the extra space for horizontal cable manager, or for future expansion plans if you like to. Remember these things when determining the height.
Ensure that both your equipment and rack follow the EIA-310-E standard. This part is easy since the width of the rack's mounting rails and rack equipment comes standardized in the market. However, you should also take the external width of rack into account. 24 inches or 600 mm is the standard width for rack enclosures. Standard for removable floor tiles in a raised floor data center is the same.
Also, you can have extra-wide rack enclosures (30 inches or 750 mm). They are available with or without extra depth. Enclosures with extra width come with side channels for accommodating PDUs, and also high-density cabling and cable managers that do not obstruct airflow. It is great for network switches with side-to-side airflow and forward-facing ports.
You may find modified vertical mounting rails with built-in cable channels and extra-wide rack measures.
It is also an important parameter since you have to be sure that the rack is deep enough for your equipment. It is not difficult to adjust the depth of vertical mounting rails in a four-post rack or rack enclosure, but within limits. 42-inches is the standard depth of rack enclosure. You can, however, get extra deep as much as 48-inches.

The Proliant DL60 Gen 9 chassis is 1 rack unit in height, has a depth of 24 inches and will fit in standard EIA 19 inch racks.
Rails allow for the most efficient use of space when mounting servers. RackSolutions specifically designed a slide rail kit to fit the shoulder screws of the DL60.
Universal rails that have a height of 1U and support up to 24 inches of depth will be compatible with the Proliant DL60. A benefit of these is the ability to re-use them for different servers or future upgrades. Plus, it’s easy to slide your server in and out of them for maintenance.
