How much space does your business require?

A full ‘rack’ comprises of 42 units inside a tall cabinet, that are rented as proportionate areas of space – often referred to as a ‘U’. The amount of units (U’s) that your business requires depends on the number of servers and other equipment, necessary to operate your applications effectively. For smaller businesses this could be 3U of rack space, with larger companies operating data heavy services, requiring a full rack or more. Most rack mounted servers take up 1U of space. This is an approximate area of 1,75” within the 42U full rack cabinet.

Rack space costs are based on two main factors:

The amount of rack space your business requires (U’s)
The amount of power outlets your co-located equipment needs.
