When purchasing racks for your data center or colocation, you’ll need to understand several factors, including the maximum size rack that will fit in the room as well as the maximum size rack that can be transported into the room. Related factors include ceiling height, conveyance infrastructure clearance, fire protection, lighting, loading dock size, elevator size along with doorway widths and heights.
From there, it’s down to choices of color and size (48U x 24” x 48” for server racks and 48U x 30” x 48” for network racks, for example). You’ll also want to consider static and dynamic load ratings and whether you need two-post or four-post racks before finalizing your choice.
