Server enclosures have changed in the past couple of years, driven not just by the demand for products with greater accessibility but also by a requirement for increased flexibility, as users gain the confidence to open up their server and upgrade the components.
The resulting changes have filtered through, and as the Rittal TS 8 shows, it is possible to satisfy both of these considerations, as well as offering some of the environmentally friendly features that customers have come to expect.
Innovations include the design of the doors, which allows cool air to flow through to the servers and keep the temperature down.
The cabling access has been well thought-out, as has the way the server enclosure is installed, with split side panels that are easier to move.
There is also the option to upgrade the TS 8 to handle high-density
servers with up to 30kW in cooling capacity.
The TS 8 also comes with features that will appeal to the security-conscious. As well as offering four locking points on the front of the enclosure, its electronic upgrades will help to monitor unauthorised access.
Finally, this enclosure can be installed quickly and easily without the need for tools.
For those looking at expanding, upgrading or buying a server enclosure for the first time, the Rittal TS 8 is a good place to start and complete the buying process. It is a product that fulfils both environmental and functional considerations, and will clearly appeal to customers.
