Which is the best 48U Server Rack for me?
We don't currently carry server racks with exactly 48U rack units. With only one less rack unit, you may also want to consider the more standard 47U Server Racks. Comparing racks can be a daunting task. Even comparing racks with similar dimensions can be like comparing apples to oranges. In addition to your dimensions requirements, please also take into consideration the rack's cooling capabilities and cooling options, compatibility, load capacity, cable management options, rack accessories, rail mounting, and overall rack expandability. For additional help, please contact our expert sales engineers at 1-866-722-5776.
42U Server Racks are the most common rack height sold for data centers. 42U = 42 Rack Units on your Mounting Rails = 73.5" of rack mount space available. Please note that actual internal and external height vary depending on rack manufacturer. Depending on your application, requirements, and space limitations, a smaller more specialized rack may be best for your needs. Though it may be intuitive to think that a smaller rack would be less expensive because of less steel being used, but racks in the 42U height range are mass produced and therefore usually have far less production cost.
