1U Rackmount Server
Benefits of 1U Rackmount Servers :
High Density Computing Servers can be stacked on top of each other allowing 42 x 1U Servers in a single rackmount server cabinet (about 7 ft tall).
We are regularly asked about providing short depth servers, or DC powered 1U servers to be fitted into vehicles such as vans, yachts and buses .
Twin or Quad 1U Servers are available with up to 4 individual servers in a 1U rackmount space, giving 168 separate servers in a 42U cabinet.
Disadvantages of 1U Rackmount Servers :
As 1U servers are so thin, expansion slots are usually kept to a minimum. Most 1U rackmount servers only have 1 x PCI-Express or PCI Slot available, however we are able to supply 1U rackmount servers with as much as 3 x PCI-Express or PCI slots.
As the fans are much smaller on a 1U server, to keep the Servers cool they need to spin faster to create the right amount of airflow. For this reason some servers can be noisier than larger servers. For our customers where low noise is an issue, we do have some very quiet rackmount servers.
1U Servers are designed for companies that require a large number of servers in a small space. This is also known as High Density servers, allowing typically 42 Rackmount server in a 19inch Rack Server Cabinet standing around 7ft tall.
