1U Storage Server

The flexibility of a 1U storage server

As organizations struggle to keep pace with rapidly rising volumes of data and constantly changing storage requirements, a 1U storage server provides flexibility and computing power in a space-saving design. A 1U storage device is ideal for space-constrained environments, delivering greater agility for IT teams as they work to deploy the most efficient and effective solutions for managing data.

When you're seeking a 1U storage server that offers exceptional reliability, outstanding support and highly competitive pricing, you'll find a wide range of custom rackmount options at Thinkmate.

Advantages of a 1U storage server

While a larger storage rack server would seem to offer greater capacity and computing power, a 1U storage server provides significant advantages over servers with other form factors.

  • A space-saving design. A 1U storage server is the ultimate space-saving device, providing IT teams with more flexibility to add capacity as needed and to manage evolving storage requirements in data centers with a limited footprint.
  • Increased productivity. As the size of motherboards, power supplies, drives and processors continues to shrink, the computing power of a 1U storage server can be equal to or greater than that of a larger device, enabling higher productivity per 1U space on a rack.
  • Lower costs. A 1U server is typically more affordable to purchase and maintain, and because it contains fewer components, it consumes less power, providing additional savings.
