What to look for in a 2U rack mount

A 2U rack mount computer provides an upgrade in storage capacity and computing power from a 1U rackmount PC while reducing the cost of acquisition, cooling and power consumption. At the same time, a 2U rackmount offers greater flexibility than a 4U rackmount PC, enabling IT teams to more easily build a server rack that can accommodate computer needs both today and tomorrow.

When choosing a 2U rack mount computer, essential features should include:

  • International certifications that provide assurances for the quality and performance required for specific applications such as fire & life safety and industrial automation.
  • Long product lifecycles with available upgrade paths that enable IT teams to standardize on specific configurations.
  • Accelerated lead times that can accommodate the urgent need for mission-critical technology.
  • Superior reliability that ensures a 2U rack mount computer can deliver reliable performance despite temperature extremes, shock and vibration, electromagnetic interference, exposure to water and the presence of dust and dirt in the workspace.
