Design and Strategy, Security and Risk, and Cloud Technology were a few of the hot topics discussed at this year’s 2015 Datacenterdyanmics San Francisco Conference (DCD). Many of the speakers at DCD took concepts and ideas to the next level. DAMAC found our showcased Rack Extension Unit to fit right in with the theme, as a new concept with extending rack height has entered the market place.
The 12U Extension Unit was developed for an international customer who was in search of extending height in their rack while maintaining weight loads.
The proto-type for this rack was created from our FasTrack series. The Fastrack can hold 3,500 pounds of equipment when stationary, enabling it to facilitate growing weight loads. More importantly, it will maintain the EIA specification within the mounting area when shipped fully populated with up to 3,000 pounds of equipment. The unit fits on-top of the existing rack and is easily mounted once the rack has been placed.
The FasTrak also features larger casters than competitive products. This provides greater floor clearance, making it easier to load and unload the rack from a shipping crate and move a fully populated rack on both flat and angled surfaces.
The Rack Extension Unit ships separately from the rack allowing for ease of shipment and deployment into the data center. The unit fits on-top of the existing rack and is easily mounted once the rack has been placed. The Extension Unit is designed with the same standards as the rack it is mounting onto. In this case the 12U Server Rack Extension Unit includes a coffin section, room for accessories and a cabinet top.
Thank you to everyone who stopped by to chat with us. We enjoyed catching up with you and look forward to seeing everyone at the next DCD event!
