What is the standard rack for a server?

A standard server rack organizes and stores multiple servers in an IT setting or data center. The vertical format conserves floor space and simplifies cabling. The racks have sides and doors.

For server applications, a standard rack comes in standardized dimensions that accept mounting of all brands of servers. The rack width is 19 inches and the vertical rails have mounting holes set to standard ECIA spacing. At Bud, our server racks come in two standard depths: 28 inches and 36 inches. Heights range from 27 U to 45 U (1 U equals 1.75 inches).

What is the difference between a server rack and a network rack?

As servers lie at the heart of any business, they are usually housed in racks that offer a high level of protection. Typically, server racks include sides and a locking door to deter tampering. Because servers generate heat that can cause premature failure of electronic components, server racks need cooling such as a fan box, and the sides and shelves are ventilated.

In contrast, a network rack is usually open in the back and front. This is useful for holding communications equipment such as network switches and patch panels. The open format improves ventilation and provides lots of room for cabling. It also allows for easy, frequent access for management of internal components. See Bud’s ValuRack here.

How do I choose a server rack?

To choose a server rack, consider its dimensions, configuration, and capacity.

  • How many servers do you need and what size are they? A 45 U rack will accommodate 45 1-U servers but only 11 4-U servers. This calculation will tell how tall the rack needs to be. How deep is the server? Will a 28-inch-deep rack be deep enough?
  • How the server rack is configured is also important. How many fan trays, shelves, and other components does the application require? Where in the rack will these be located?
  • What will be the weight of the servers? The maximum load capacity of the rack should be greater than the equipment weight.
  • Softer, but equally important, considerations include price, delivery time, and ability of the manufacturer to customize.

Bud’s server racks include as standard many features that other manufacturers charge extra for. These include a four-fan fan box, fully vented sides, ventilated shelves, a locking front door, split rear door, and six cable management brackets. The result is a highly functional yet economical rack that is ready for server installation.

If desired, Bud offers a full range of server rack accessories such as temperature controls, drawers, slide-out shelves, power strips, panel blanks, and casters. As part of our customization services, we will be happy to install these accessories before shipping.
