Server housing guide

On server housing is a special computer case in the form of a tower or a slide-in housing. The latter is pushed into a server rack and can be used to save space. In most server rooms are 19 inches large server housing used for insertion and these provide space for multiple hard drives and other hardware. In the trade, the server housing still offered in other versions. Before buying, users should look into the various variants in detail so they know what kind of case they need.

Which server housing are offered in the trade?

Most server housing 19 inches (48.3 cm) in size and have a rectangular desktop shape. As a rule, the housings are made of aluminum and have a black or silver color. Alternatively, there are also server housing with the shape of a tower. This is similar to a normal mini or midi tower. There are both housing and housing without power adapter, If you decide for a server housing with power supply, then you save in comparison to the single purchase some money. In general, the server enclosures are compatible with different power supplies and are suitable for the standards micro ATX, mini ITX and ATX. The number of available installation options are also crucial when purchasing. Inside the server case several hard disks have space and are from one case Fanscooled. In addition, there are also external bays for more hard drives. The bays are accessible from the front and so changing the hard drives is a breeze. Since there are several hard disks in a server housing, a rather high level of heat is generated during operation. For this reason, each housing has a ventilation system in the form of individual fans. The more and larger the fans, the more effective the cooling. Some server enclosures have one or more USB ports on the front.

What must be considered when buying?

Before buying, users must first make some important decisions. How should ask yourself what kind of housing they need and how much money they want to spend. Based on the following questions, each user will find a custom server enclosure in a short time. What is the existing server room or parking space? Is better a 19-inch server chassis suitable for insertion into the server cabinet or makes a tower housing better? Generally, the 19 inch variants are more popular and are sold commercially in a larger selection. In direct comparison to the tower, the 19 inch housings take up less space and can be used to save space in a server cabinet. Tower-shaped server enclosures are less likely to be used by businesses and more likely by private households in the form of a NAS server. In a private environment makes a 19-inch case makes little sense, otherwise buyers would have to order a server cabinet. Which power supply and which motherboards does the user want to use in the server chassis? If the user does not know in advance which hardware he needs, then it is an advantage if the server chassis supports all common standards. How many hard drives are needed in the case? Do only internal or external hard drives need to be connected to the server chassis? As a rule, up to 7 hard drives can be connected externally to the case internally behind the front of the case and a maximum of 3 hard drives. If many hard drives are used in a server chassis, then this should definitely have an effective ventilation. 2 or better 3 fans with a size of 40 mm x 20 mm are sufficient for most purposes. Especially handy is a front USB port and thanks to this, external devices can be connected to the server chassis.
