APC’s Server Racks and Enclosures

CX, SX and Easy Ranges available at Comms Express

Many of us have been in the a sticky position whereby we would love to have the capabilities of a dedicated server room but we cannot afford the space, or indeed we do not want to be in the same room as a huge monstrosity.

IT spaces in small- and medium-sized businesses are often left unmonitored, unorganised, unsecured, and space-constrained. Properly deployed physical IT infrastructure is critical as your company utilises mobility solutions, virtualises servers and adopts cloud applications.

Another huge inconvenience is the noise that some enclosures can emit. This is where the NetShelter CX comes into its own. The CX range is a soundproofed server room in a box which allows for IT deployment wherever and whenever it is needed, saving space, cost and deployment time. So no more pesky monitor alarms going off!

A great USP, hey?!

We are delighted that our friends at APC are offering a wonderful storage solution for those with small office spaces with the NetShelter CX. After all, why build a dedicated server room when there is space available within your current environment. Your workforce probably won’t even realise it’s a cabinet for servers!

Here are a few tips as to how you can streamline your setup and save space:

Glass-fronted Cabinet to allow monitoring at all times and reduce any downtime.

Uninterruptible power supply (UPS) protecting critical equipment and maintain availability during scheduled and unscheduled power outages. They also protect against power surges potential data loss, which can result in lost revenue.

Respond to changing IT needs and improve efficiency – Use scalable systems to rapidly increase or decrease capacity as needed for power management. Being smart here can lower your expenditure.

Think about upgrades – Add these to pre-installed kit for more cost-effective improvements.

Monitor energy wastage.

Purchase racks and enclosures with pre-installed equipment, ensuring all equipment is pre-tested and thus you time.

Limited for space? always go for a soundproof option – before it drives your colleagues nuts!
