While most servers are located in a separate room for most businesses, there are occasions when you are going to be asked to install a server rack cabinet in a location where it will be in close proximity to those who must use it. When you have an installation such as this, you are going to have to take noise into consideration along with other considerations such as cooling.
Choose Your Server Rack Cabinet Carefully
As you are looking for a server rack cabinet for this type of installation, you need to keep in mind that while you can use an enclosed cabinet to help keep the noise to a minimum, it must allow for proper cooling. Most modern servers are relatively quiet, but you should look for cabinets that provide plenty of cooling air flow and if you are using additional cooling fans, look for those with extremely low noise ratings.
