Open rack or closed cabinet? The decision of whether to go for an open rack or a closed cabinet for your servers depends largely on the cooling setup of your data centre – the environment itself from which the data centre operates.
Data Centres continuously cram more computing power into their networks to meet the growing demand for more IT resources. The need for more computing power is increasing continuously. Cooling has become a very serious concern.
Which one do you need? In order to know what cabinet you should purchase it is important to know what each one offers. Failure to pick the right “housing unit” for sensitive or even heat-generating equipment can lead to huge losses in both data and money.
