How to Choose the Right Rackmount Server
Computing demands are accelerating at speeds never seen before. Rackmount servers provide the flexibility, reduced footprint, and value you need to run an efficient operation. Part of its flexibility comes from the freedom to customize your builds, for example, choosing different blade nodes in a single blade chassis.
How can you determine which rackmount server is right for you? If you’re trying to maximize the amount of computing power and storage density within a fixed space, you need rackmount storage. Instead of indefinitely increasing the footprint your servers take up, you can optimize the capacity you get within a limited area by leveraging a high-density form factor.
Another consideration is your redundancy requirements and software needs since not every server supports every feature you may need, like virtualization. We optimize our rackmount servers for various operating systems and with the ability to leverage powerful system management tools.
