Server Rackmount

Gain flexibility with a server for rackmount installation

Data centers today need all the flexibility they can get, as performance and data storage capacity requirements seem to evolve on a daily basis. A server or storage server with a rackmount form factor provides data center teams with maximum flexibility and optimal performance at affordable prices, making it easy to continue to meet today's requirements while future-proofing data center infrastructure.

Thinkmate has been a world-class provider of custom rackmount servers, storage solutions, and workstations since 1986. When you need highly reliable machines at highly competitive prices, Thinkmate offers a wide range of custom server rack technology to meet the needs of any computing environment.

Why choose servers with rackmount form factors?

Rackmount servers and storage solutions offer several key benefits to data architects as they provide equipment that will deliver the performance, product lifecycle, and value that their data center requires.

Servers for rackmount installation pack more computing power and storage density into an existing data center footprint, helping to avoid the capital costs of adding or expanding facilities as additional storage capacity and increased performance is required.

Servers and storage servers in rackmount installations also enable easier cooling for equipment, as the server rack ensures space above and below each unit. Cables and power cords can be more easily managed and organized in a server rackmount infrastructure, making it easier to troubleshoot connections and requiring less maintenance time from data center staff.

Custom server and storage rack server devices provide the additional benefit of precise configuration to the needs of the data center. Rather than settling and overpaying for hardware that only comes close to the ideal features, functionality and capacity, custom rackmount servers and storage solutions enable IT architects to precisely configure their equipment to deliver optimal performance and storage capacity.
