The Functions of a Rack System

It’s not just cabling services that Keydence offers, we also hold the solution to your storage needs. With mounting slots providing safe bays for servers, hard disk drives and other computing equipment, rack system not only reduces the storage space required but also showcases a neat and stylish look. So what makes a good rack system?

Operating 24/7 is key for many. To determine uptime, take note of your workload rate and MTBF. Workload rate accounts the total amount of user data transferred annually. While MTBF refers to average time of device function before it breaks down.

Thermal control and vibration tolerance is yet another critical consideration. As drives are nestled closely, vibration, noise and heat are a result. These drives usually have a high spindle speeds that allow disks to rotate faster for a quicker data read – this is a contribution too. At the same time, the vibration that it causes can result in data loss. The sweet spot between the ability to read data quickly and preserve data is what determines a good rack system.

An organizing tool that holds, stacks, secures and protects various computer network and server hardware, the rack system basically helps to make a technician’s life easier as it enables them to settle issues much quicker when they are aware of the equipment’s physical footprint. With the rack system there is no need for shelving as the shelving in the rack systems can store switches – UTP, PDU, CCTV recorders. PC and monitors.


There are different types of sizes for rack systems such as the nineteen-inch rack which is used in data centers and server rooms. Therefore, the size of your rack system depends upon the number of equipment you will be installing into the rack.

The fiber optic cable can be protected by the rack system as well. The rack system acts as a protection for these equipment against water and external problems. With an in-built ventilation system the rack system prevents the equipment from overheating.

Useful Information

A PDU is a specific block of information transferred over a network. It is often used in reference to the OSI model, since it describes the different types of data that are transferred from each layer.

A UTP is an unshielded twisted pair (UTP) cables are widely used in the computer and telecommunications industry as Ethernet cables and telephone wires.
