Your server room may be the heart of your business or office, so it’s critical that it is set up in an organized and efficient manner. This isn’t always easy though, and if you’re unsure of how to set your server room up correctly, it might result in a ton of unnecessary stress and mistakes. Here are four tips meant to save you time and trouble when setting up a brand new server room.
1. Choosing Appropriately Sized Racks
It may seem obvious to some, but people often forget to pick the correctly sized server racks. Don’t just think about what your current internal space needs are–you may need to expand in the future, and that means planning ahead. You’ll want to also be sure that you have enough floor space so that you can maneuver around the server room easily.
2. Utilizing Customization
Plenty of server rack manufacturers allow for customization. This includes the addition or modification of shelving, top or side panels, feet, and mounting rails so you can have the server room of your dreams.
3. Considering Power Technology
There are constant updates in the world of power technology and this means you shouldn’t limit yourself to older power strips. There are other options like rack mount strips, remote power products, three-phase power technology, and of course the standard power strips as well. Think about how many outlets you’ll need and the power requirements you really have.
4. Cabling Efficiency
Save yourself some time and trouble and have your cabling installed by a professional, certified organization. Your cabling may be guaranteed this way and could save you from disastrous downtime or money loss. Proper cabling is clean and efficient, so be sure to find a reputable company to work with.
