Rack Servers Overview
What are Rack Servers?
A server is a high powered computer designed to store, retrieve and send computer files and data. It processes requests from client computers or programs and delivers the data via the internet or local network. Rack servers, or rack-mounted servers, are servers that are designed to be installed in a low-profile enclosure (rack) designed to hold IT equipment.
These racks contain multiple vertical bays where the servers are installed, minimizing the need for floor space and simplifying supplying power; however cooling the confined space where the servers are crowded is a necessity. When a server is mounted in a rack, it is usually done so with a rail kit that allows the server to slide in and out of the rack to provide easy in-rack serviceability.
