server racksServer racks can be beneficial for any application where servers are used in a business. They can provide a more aesthetically pleasing appearance than just having your servers just lying around anywhere. Here are some of the benefits of installing a server rack within your business setup.

Server Racks Increase Performance

Using server racks can easily help to increase your server’s performance for the better. They are perfect for helping to provide proper airflow ensuring that your server won’t overheat or be pushed against objects causing an obstruction in front of the air vents. Unlike having servers free and lose to move around, server racks are designed to easily keep your servers secure at all times to reduce the risk of movement. They are also customizable to cater for the specific needs of your business.

Easier to Maintain

Another benefit of using server racks is that they are easy to maintain. This is because everything is in order and organized appropriately and cables are bundled in neat and tidy bundles which allows for easy access. Server racks are designed with shelves that slide out or racks which give you even easier access to your servers without having to bump your head when trying to crawl into them. When integrated into your business they provide a cost effect solution for easy maintenance especially if you have to hire someone to come and check them.

Increase Security

Another added benefit of using a rack server is that is can provide a convenient method of increasing security to your servers. Most server rack feature locked panels which help to keep people from accessing the servers without your permission. You can also purchase rack servers without multiple locking options which allows for some servers or sections to be locked while others aren’t.

So if you own a business that uses many servers, then why not take a look at how beneficial a server rack can be to save you both time and money in the long run.

Kendall Howard Performance Plus™ Heavy Duty LAN Racks

kendall-howard-performance-plusThey may call the items in the Kendall Howard Performance Plus™ Series “LAN racks,” but in layman’s terms, they’re really just the ultimate in workstations. These heavy duty modular workstations are designed to be positively loaded with computer equipment, while still giving you a flat work surface to sit at for writing and typing. These bring you the best of both worlds – they give you the benefits of both a desk and an ultra-sturdy server rack.

Performance Plus™ LAN racks come in a standard 80″ height (well, that actually changes to 84″ if you choose to use the optional casters), and can have either a 24″ or 30″ depth (your choice). You can also choose from 4 different widths that range from 36″ to 72″ inches. All of these sizing choices give you great flexibility to find the exact fit for your needs and work environment – there’s even a corner model available for situations where space is tight and there isn’t much real estate available along the walls.

But no matter which option you choose, the one thing that doesn’t change is the incredible weight capacity – each shelf on a Performance Plus™ workstation can handle up to 850 lbs of equipment! With this type of capability, there’s not much reason to keep purchasing desks and server racks separately (unless you really need an enclosure, that is). These LAN racks make ideal work spaces in data centers and IT labs, but they’re not limited to computer applications – with their rugged design and high weight capacity, they also make terrific work benches and shipping stations in factories and warehouses.
