More about rack space

Rack space is space in professional racks for reliably placing servers, routers and other IT hardware, in standardized server cabinets, in a data center. You can rent an entire rack (full rack) or part of a rack (shared rack, with one or more rack units). Renting a series of racks in a shielded area within the data center is also possible. A private space with server cabinets can be in the form of a private cage, a private corridor or a private suite. The servers and hardware installed by the company that is renting the rack space remain under their own management. But in the shared data center where the rack space is located, you have the benefits of shared facilities, manpower and costs. In addition, renting rack space comes with colocation services surrounding safety, security, commercial (internet) connectivity, redundant networks and backup power.
