3U Rackmount Servers

3U Rackmount Servers are available with up to 16 x 3.5" drive bays

Servers designed to be fixed in a 19" Cabinet are typically described as rackmount, rack mounted, rack server, rack mountable, or occasionally simply shelf server. The height of the server is standardized as multiples of 1.75 inches (44.45 mm) or one rack unit or U. for instance a 3U Rackmount Server is 5.25 inches high. The depth of a 3U rackmount server is not so standard and can vary depending on the amount and type of processors, drive, bays, expansion cards and if you require redundant power supplies.
3U Servers can give much more expansion capabilities than a 1U or 2U rack server. A 3U Rack Server is the smallest Rackmount System that can incorporate Full Height and Full Length PCI or PCIe Expansion Cards in a Vertical Position without the need for a Riser card. There are also options for upto 16 drive bays on the front of the rackmount chassis.

3U Rackmount Server

Benefits of 3U Rackmount Servers :

3U Rackmount Servers usually have more room for expansion that smaller 1U and 2U servers. with up to 16 x 3.5" Hard drive bays, and up to 8 PCI-E or PCI Slots available

We are regularly asked about providing short depth 3U servers, or DC powered 3U servers to be fitted into vehicles such as vans, yachts and buses .

Disadvantages of 3U Rackmount Servers :

As 3U servers are larger than 1U and 2U servers, they take up a lot more room in a rackmount cabinet. Therefore you can only install 14 x 3U servers in a 42U Cabinet

As the fans are much larger on a 3U server, to keep the Servers cool they can spin slower to create the right amount of airflow. For this reason some 3U servers can be quieter than smaller 1U or 2U servers.
For our customers where low noise is an issue, we do have some very quiet rackmount servers.

Industry departments that tend to favor 3U servers are typically:
