There are a number of things to consider when choosing a server rack. One of the main things we need to look at when purchasing a server rack is the built-in cooling systems and the appropriate airflow provided by the server rack. Server racks are designed to cool air and blow hot air. Functions such as rack holders or server rack doors help to reduce the heat produced by the hardware, providing more space for hot air to blow away and prevent heat from being trapped in the server room.
If the hardware used is constantly in use and generates a lot of heat, there are many other ways to cool down the hardware, such as service cabinets with built-in fans, and individual server racks with extra cooling systems. It is also important to ensure that the balance between hot and cold is good. Many server racks have steel panels for front and rear doors to ensure safety and security when something happens, such as in the case of a fire, to keep other server data secure.
Another important thing to consider is not overloading the servers. You need to find out that due to the amount of power required by the server, overload can not only damage it, but can completely destroy it, and even if the server does not appear to be damaged, it may be long-term damage. The typical power requirement is 15-20 amperes, which vertically fits into the server holder or the adapter like the rack mount powerstrip. Although depending on its size and hardware, you need to make sure that the server and hardware have enough power, because if there is not enough power supply, there is a good chance that the server will have many downtime.
Sometimes it is necessary to access and modify the power distribution of the server or any other hardware, the device called Power Distribution Unit (PDU) is used for this purpose. Most quality PDUs allow you to remotely access and change the range of amplifiers between 15 and 30.
