The Importance of Server Racks and Enclosures

The Importance of Server Racks and Enclosures
24/09/2019

Even before digitalisation started to touch most aspects of our lives, servers and network equipment have been an integral part of the infrastructure of businesses. Servers store data and carry shared information to users, providing access for all users in an organisation to resources as required. Their importance is evident and so it is vital that any business appreciates them as such.

A vital part of this appreciation is ensuring the servers and other network equipment is well-maintained, cared for and secured properly, and one of the best ways to meet all three of these areas is to consider investing in network rack equipment.

Benefits of Network Racks When servers and network equipment is stacked on the floor or on tables, ventilation to the equipment can be blocked. This can result in the equipment increasing in temperature, which in turn can impact the performance of the equipment and may even result in equipment failure from overheating. Racks maintain an even spacing between the equipment, encouraging ventilation and reducing the need for external cooling.

Racks also make the maintenance of network equipment easier, as everything is in one place and can be organised in a way that makes the equipment as accessible as possible. This can include the organisation of power cords and cables, making it easier to trace these wires and locate potential problems. Being able to arrange cords and cables also makes the server room safer for engineers and technicians, reducing the risk of tripping hazards.
