Quiet Racks Vs. Dedicated Server Room

For mid- to small-size areas, purchasing one or two quiet racks instead of building a separate data center is extremely cost effective.

- No raised flooring, No big A/C add-on equipment, No architect or construction fees.

For large areas or existing dedicated server rooms, carve out equipment that can be moved to other areas or labs to alleviate hot spots in the data center. Also provides quieter working environment, allowing employees to concentrate more fully and abating OSHA / insurance claims for hearing loss.
