          • What goes in a server rack?

            Server racks are versatile storage solutions capable of housing a variety of equipment, including rack-mount gear like servers, networking equipment, monitoring equipment, audio-visual gear, and more. They also accommodate non-rackable equipment (Foxtel box, Playstation, & Google Home) using shelves and drawers designed specifically for server racks. This flexibility allows you to customize your setup to suit your specific needs, whether you're setting up a home office, small business network, or a professional live event venue.

          • How do server racks work?

            Server racks function as organisational hubs for your equipment, providing a structured and secure environment. They effectively manage space by vertically stacking servers, networking gear, and other equipment in a compact and orderly manner. This arrangement not only maximizes floor space but also ensures efficient airflow around the equipment, helping to maintain optimal operating temperatures and prolonging the life of your hardware.

            In addition to organisation and space management, server racks facilitate easy access for maintenance and troubleshooting. Their open design allows technicians to reach equipment quickly without disrupting the entire setup. This accessibility is crucial for minimizing downtime and ensuring smooth operation of critical IT infrastructure.

          • How tall is a server rack?

            Server rack height is measured in rack units (RUs), with each RU equivalent to 44.45 millimeters (1.75 inches). For example, an 8RU rack can hold equipment that occupies 8 rack units of space. This measurement standardizes the vertical space in server racks, making it easy to determine how much equipment can fit into a specific rack size. For more details on selecting the right size rack for your needs, feel free to check out our blog post on Tips for Setting Up Your New AV Server Rack.

          • How deep is a server rack?

            Our AV server racks have an adjustable depth of 410-510mm, making them versatile and suitable for various equipment. This feature allows you to customise the depth to fit your gear perfectly, ensuring efficient space usage and enhanced airflow. 

            Additionally, the adjustable depth future-proofs your setup by accommodating evolving needs. Whether you're upgrading your home office, small business network, or live event venue, this flexibility ensures your open server rack can adapt to new equipment without requiring a complete overhaul. This feature also improves cable management, making it easier to access and organise your network server rack components.

          • How wide is a server rack?

            Most server racks, including ours, stick to the 19-inch industry standard width. This standard has been around since the early 20th century, ensuring that your gear from different brands fits perfectly every time. Are all server racks the same width? Yes, adhering to this standard means your 19-inch rack mount equipment, like servers and network switches, will fit seamlessly, simplifying your setup. Plus, a standard width makes organising and managing cables a breeze, keeping your setup neat and efficient.

            However, some server racks' widths may vary depending on the type you choose; for example, server cabinets include a bigger housing that surrounds the rack mount frame. For the most streamlined fit, open server racks are your best bet.

            So, whether you're setting up a home server rack, a small business network, or a live event venue, the 19-inch standard width ensures everything fits and works together perfectly.

          • What size server rack do I need?

            Choosing the right size server rack depends on several factors, including the dimensions and number of devices you plan to mount. Assessing the physical dimensions of your equipment is crucial to ensure it fits comfortably within the rack without overcrowding or wasted space.

            Consider the number of rack units (RUs) required for each piece of equipment, as this determines the vertical space needed. For instance, a server may require multiple RUs, while smaller devices like switches or audio equipment may need fewer RUs.

            It's also essential to anticipate future growth and expansion of your IT infrastructure. Selecting a server rack with additional capacity allows room for future equipment upgrades and expansions, preventing the need for frequent replacements.

          Frequently Asked Questions

          A server rack is like a special house for all your electrical equipment such as servers, routers, switches, monitoring equipment, hard drives + devices like your Foxtel box, Playstation, and Google Home. They are ideal for organisation as the vertical racks provide ample storage for all your digital equipment to reside in one place. Plus, it helps with things like airflow, cable management, and keeping tech things safe. It's a smart move if you want to make the most of your space and leave room to grow down the line.

          When you're picking out a server rack, you want to consider a few things. First off, take a look at how much space you've got. You need a rack that fits nicely in your area. Also, think about the size of your equipment. You don't want anything sticking out or being too cramped. If you plan on expanding later, keep that in mind too.

          Are all server racks the same width? Yes, most rack-mounted equipment have a ‘rack standard’ mounting width of 19 inches measured from one hole to another. That way, your equipment can easily fit and get mounted in the rack. 

          Racks are vertically measured in these things called rack units (RU). Each RU is around 1.75 inches tall. So, if you've got a big piece of gear that's 4RU, it's gonna take up about 7 inches of space in the rack. Oh and don't forget to check the depth and weight capacity of the rack. You wanna make sure it can handle your gear without any issues. If you’d like to learn more about picking the right server rack for you, checkout our blog.

          Yep, weight and load limits are important to keep things from getting overloaded and damaged inside your server rack. Each rack has its own weight capacity. Take into account the heaviest equipment you have and any extras like shelves. It's a good idea to leave a bit of extra space for future gear too. That way, your rack can handle the load without any problems and everything stays in one piece.

          Having organised cables in your server rack is a big deal. It keeps things tidy, prevents cable mishaps, and makes it easier to fix stuff if something goes wrong. Use cable management solutions like rails, lacing bars, and brush panels to keep those cables dust free and in line. You can even label them and use different colored cable ties to make things easier to find. Good cable management also helps with airflow and makes it simpler to add or change equipment later on.

          Absolutely! You can often customise or modify your server rack to make it just right for you. Some racks have adjustable mounting rails so you can move things around. Others have removable shelves, drawers, and panels to fit different gear sizes and shapes. And there are plenty of accessories like power units, cable organisers, and blank panels that you can add to customise your rack system.

          Open racks and enclosed cabinets are like two different styles with their own pros and cons.

          Open frame server racks have a simpler design, are more compact (ideal for tight spaces) and show off your gear. They're good if you need to get to your equipment a lot, and they're usually cheaper.

          Enclosed racks, on the other hand, have more security, and protect your gear from dust. They're great if you want extra protection or if you're in a place where cooling is really important. Think about what you need, how secure you want things to be, and how much space you have before making your choice.

          There are loads of cool extras you can get to level up your server rack. Cable management stuff like trays, ties, and bars will keep everything organized. Power distribution units (PDUs) give you more outlets and surge protection.

          Cooling options like rack mount and roof mount fans help with temperature control. Shelves and drawers provide extra storage space. Blank panels fill empty spaces and help with airflow. And if you have equipment that doesn't fit in a rack, you can get 19” rack shelves and rails to make it work.
