The Importance Of Data Cabinets In Data Centres

Sep 12, 2008
Why are data cabinets so important to data centres? After all they are just a cover and nothing more...right? Wrong, they serve as a neat cover yes however they do play a vital part in keeping the machine protected. They can act as a shock absorber, which is why the best quality cabinets are so designed that they protect the server machines. Say for instance there were to be an unpredictable seismic wave which in turn causes a shudder to the building, the machines inside will also be affected, therefore they are at risk of losing vital information.

Data cabinets not only keep the machines protected they also work on keeping the machines clean and free from dust. They are also good for space saving methods and allowing better circulation of cooled air to travel from machine to machine. These can come free-standing or wall mounted - whatever the choice they will allow for a reduced noise level. Yet data cabinets are not only used for rack mounted computers, they can be used for telecommunications equipment or audio and entertainment equipment.

These also help to keep all cables neat and tidy, which is important for people who are networking computers together or for dealing with problems on the machines. Good cable management also reduce problems of using up space for rack mounted machines. Often too many cables can overload the machine, with the weight of each cable increasing and losing connection in some places. Without these measures of security over the machines, these can cause damage and potential loss of vital information.

The cabinets also make it easier to maintain the machines, with easy access from the front and rear of the encasement. They are also relatively light in weight so they are easily transferrable and replaceable. In a data centre, it is always important to maintain and manage it well. Data centres are expensive to build and can be just as expensive keep replacing equipment regularly. There are simple methods of maintaining and managing the centre without having to spend out on lots of money.

Cabinets are just one way of maintaining and managing a data centre, other steps and measures include software maintenance, energy efficiency, power management, security management, management of data centre teams and much more. Making sure that you have the right data cabinets installed is just another step into making sure the centres are running smoothly. As there are multiple machines at the same time, they make for a noisy bunch of machines so the cabinets help to reduce the amount of noise in the building.
