by ERacks System eRacks Open Source Systems

Are you planning to host Enterprise Servers on your small business’s premises? Do you know that rackmount servers come with plenty of benefits? They don’t only give you full regulation of the server, software and other elements but also the freedom to share and add more terminals and give access to your team outside and inside the premises. 

 

Though you can find various types of servers in the market, however, a Rackmount Server is the best option for all types of businesses. 

 

Rack Mount Server takes up a tiny space in the building and is easy to use and install. These servers can provide improved security and need fewer resources to work. 


Now, your search doesn’t only end at a rackmount server as it is further categorized into different capabilities, sizes and operation environments. 

 

Here are some factors that you can consider when purchasing a rackmount server: 

 

Size 

One of the most crucial things to look for when buying a rackmount server is its size. Consider whether you’re installing it into an existing rack or want to purchase a new one. Would it be free-standing? If you’re planning to put the server into the pre-existing rack, then buying the right size that fits properly is important. 

 

Rackmount Server is characteristically 1.75 (1u) in height and 19 in width. You can also find them in 2U, 3U and 4U heights to make more space for additional components and processors. 

 

Memory 

F0r more enterprises, the server handles all functions of the computer including sharing and storage of files. It indicates that the server would be accountable for storing customer, and financial data, and managing running software, printer, and emails. 

 

The memory amount and storage capacity you’ll require will differ based on the particular demand you’ll give to the server. If you’re buying your first-ever server, consider at least 1 TB storage space, 8B memory and around 8-16 processor cores. Consider the core as similar to the CPU. Thus, a 10-core processor will be equivalent to 10 combined CPUs. 

 

Budget Vs Requirements 

If you’re a startup or a small business that doesn’t have adequate funding, then this factor is crucial for you. In such situations, always try to balance the cost and the quality. There are plenty of dealers such as eRacks that provide world-class quality and affordable rackmount servers. They also provide consultation services to help you find the right solution for your business.
