To ensure satisfaction with your rack server, there are a few things to keep in mind.
Our guidelines will help you select the right rack server for your needs.
Key questions before making a purchase
To find the right rack server, it is important to know what exact requirements you have for the system, such as:
- Where will the rack server be situated? Will the system be part of a data center or will it be used for your company?
- For what purpose will the server be used? Thanks to low entry costs and flexible expansion possibilities, rack systems are ideally suited for virtualizing a company’s IT for instance.
- Is there something that is particularly important to you? Such as energy efficiency, expandability or performance?

The right rack server for your requirements
What size should your system be?
Height units (U) are a measurement used to describe the height of a rack server with a width of 19 inches. One height unit corresponds to 1.75 inches or 44.45 mm. Depending on how high your rack server is, the system can offer various benefits in the areas of efficiency, flexibility and expandability.
Rack systems with one height unit (1U) are ideal for those seeking an affordable server with balanced performance. 2U rack servers are energy-efficient all-rounders. These systems can be used for practically any application. Some of our 2U servers have shorter installation depths and are therefore especially compact, making them ideal for use in data centers. 3U and 4U servers are powerful, flexible and specially built for permanent use. Thanks to their impressive computing power and exceptional storage density, 3U and 4U rack servers are the perfect devices for computing-intensive applications and requirements.
Energy-efficient power supplies and high power densities make our rack servers very economical. Since we place an emphasis on making our systems as quiet as possible, we only use high-quality components, such as low-noise fans. Many of our rack systems are therefore suitable for use directly in the work environment.
Tips for the RAID configuration of your rack server
Depending on requirements, our rack systems can employ various RAID setups. As a long-standing IT standard, RAID is particularly recommendable when fail-safe reliability and speed are priorities. Do you have questions regarding the RAID configuration of your system? We are happy to help!
