Server Cabinets – What Should You Know Before Purchasing?

What you shouldn’t forget to do, though, is pay the same care and attention to your choice of server cabinet because your server cabinet will play an essential role in ensuring that your server network performs to its optimum capability. When considering what type of server cabinet will best meet your requirements the key areas to focus on are what I call the three S’s: Size, Sound and Style.

The most important one of these three is undoubtedly size. It’s surprisingly common for companies to buy server cabinets and then discover that the servers they’ve bought don’t actually fit inside. This is because the size of the cabinet itself isn’t actually an indication of its usable space, and although the two measurements may be similar, it’s the size of a cabinet’s usable space that you need to focus on initially. When checking the server cabinet’s exterior measurements make sure that it fits in the space you’ve allocated for it. Again, this sounds like an obvious statement but you need to check that you measure the space in which you intend to install the cabinet accurately so that there’ll be no hidden surprises when it comes to installation. When considering the size of cabinet to choose it’s also worth asking yourself whether it’s worth leaving room for expansion. If you’re a rapidly growing business you’ll probably want to have the facility to add more servers to your network at some point and if this is the case then you’ll want to select a cabinet that provides space for additional machines.

In terms of both sound and style the main factor to consider is the location of your cabinet. If your server is going to be situated near members of staff then you’ll need to buy one that offers acoustic dampening or, better yet, soundproofing. Servers produce a significant amount of noise and without some sort of acoustic solution it won’t be long before you have unhappy staff members buzzing in your ear. If your server’s going to be locked away in a cupboard somewhere then sound won’t be an issue and you won’t need to worry about its style either - you just need to choose one that fits!

But if your server is going to be at all visible to clients or employees then you’d do well to select a server cabinet that fits in well with the aesthetics of its surroundings. Fortunately, server cabinets are available in a wide variety of styles, colours and materials, so you should be able to find one that suits a space’s ambiance.

The internet is an excellent place for sourcing your cabinet - not only do you get the best prices but also if you contact companies like Keyzone they’ll be able to provide you with practical advice on which server cabinet will be best for you and in most cases deliver it the very next day.
