Together with the ever increasing demand of companies for
the greatest computing power and space that is needed to run a data center,
server cabinet, and network cabinet – these are usually utilized to establish a
networking hardware and several assemblies in the data center. Among these
equipment, which one is the most suitable for a the need of the company? It is
very important to search for one ultimate answer.
The most commonly utilized server rack type is the on with
open frame together with the mounting rails. However, this comes with no sides
or even doors. It can be easily applied to conveniently accommodate some
equipment like servers, monitors, or storage. The server racks can come in
several shapes and sizes.
The size of the width of the server rack will always stay
the same. It comes with the standard or the traditional size of 19 inches. It
also has a height and depth that can also be different. Besides, this server
rack has two basic types: the 2-post and 4-post rack.
With this in mind, a network rack is very similar to the
server rack when it come to its shape and sizes. These are called relay rack or
the open rack. Its metal frame chassis can effectively hold, stack, secure, and
protect different interconnected computer networks. As well as the server
In line with this, there are many advantages when it comes
to server and network racks:
Improved Air Flow inside the rack – the server
rack is designed to be an open structure that has no doors. Which makes
provision for abundant and unobstructed airflow to help the equipment to cool
Very good for cable management – ever since the
server rack can give just enough open space and easy accessibility, it is more
convenient for the engineers to install and manage just a few hundreds or event
thousands worth of devices and cables inside the open rack.
However, there are some serious disadvantages given its good
advantages. Here are the cons for server and network rack:
Not secured access – any personnel can gain
access to the network or server rack. This is the very reason why the equipment
inside the rack lacks security.
High exposure to dust – the equipment is
installed on the rack and has the high tendency to be fully exposed to dust,
debris and other possible contaminants. With exposure to these elements, it has
the possibility to acquire damage over time.
I believe this has already happened to majority of us: you
have purchased a product that you really want for the longest time and you have
been patiently waiting for it to arrive for days – or even weeks. When the
product finally arrived it looks like a prop from the first few seconds of the
show Ace Ventura: Pet Detective.
Even if it is very entertaining to watch (both in movies and
in real life scenario) I am pretty confident that there can only be a handful
of people who will truly appreciate seeing a product that was treated so
poorly. Either by the delivery man or order fulfillment warehouse or anything
that is uncontrollable in nature. These people are the responsible ones for
holding out everything and stretching their smile very wickedly while they stretch
their hands to readily accept your cash for the replacement of the product they
The majority of the technical savvy people are way so far
behind trusting a $5 worth corrugated box to protect their product from
unexpected damages – especially IT equipment products. And instead of utilizing
a shock-absorbent rackmount shipping boxes when they are shipping out their
servers, they just use other sensitive pieces of gear from one company to the
There are companies that are proud to say that they are the
best distributor of a product used for shipment. They are at par with the
military and commercial grade quality of cases. These cases also have the
slide-out removable racks!
The rail system of these removable racks have their system
slides right out, together with their file cabinet-style system. This mechanism
allows you to have fuller and most complete access to your equipment inside the
case. It also makes the installation and wiring of the equipment easy. These
cases meet the best ATA specs for cases and they have very amazing Million Mile
warranty. They also ship free just by using standard methods.
Also, you can check out some of the companies’ all-purpose
transport cases as well. They are greatly utilized for some of the trade show
displays and they can also be used for musicians’ gear and equipment – gear,
laptops, and almost everything else.
My boyfriend and I are always making sure that we celebrate
anniversaries in the best & most fashionable way, with that in mind, it is
our anniversary next week. For this year’s celebration, I tried putting
together all our memorabilia in a scrapbook for our moments last year. This is
the biggest dates that we celebrate yearly and for this year we went to a
steakhouse. It is one of those places that they regularly print their menu in a
With this in mind, I was able to keep our menu and I used
the last year’s menu for our yearly scrapbooking. I cut out the items that we
ordered from the menu. I have to glue for each of the description on a very
fancy scrapbook paper. This might sound a lot of work, but it is a nice keep
sake. However, getting each of the proper descriptions on a proper line up was
very frustrating. Especially if each one of of the descriptions came in a
This is like having the different cutouts machined
differently on the base to effectively cover on the plastic electronics
enclosure. Several companies have already tried to machine the enclosure in
house. Together with the CNC machining process, there will be precised cutouts
one each of the component (example: the base and cover) and in theory, they
should be able to properly line up. However, if just one piece of a certain
product is just even a couple of millimeters off, a design engineer will not be
able to line up the holes especially if the enclosure is already assembled.
Your electronics equipment will not properly fit inside the
enclosure, and also, the entire piece will be totally discarded. Without having
the proper electronics equipment, the attempt to properly machine these
enclosures and combine them with one complete unit can cause an unexpected
slippage and compression. Which in return, would also cause several holes to
not line up effectively. Now, this should take into account that there are
companies that offers CNC machining not just a drill press. Drill Press will
always have the tendency to produce very uneven holes.
However, there are companies that utilizes advanced
machining techniques in order to produce the right product specific guides that
allows them to properly machine an enclosure as one entire unit. Ensuring that
the placement of the equipment inside the enclosure are of the same size and
measurement. Also, this is not the only most precise method of machining that
is widely available. This is also the most efficient and cost effective method.
This is the very reason why companies are able to pass along the cost savings
to its customers because of the low cost.
