Daily Tip: Data Center Furniture

5000-3-100-CR-SIFF01When adding data center furniture to your environment don’t jump to the Swedish store for the cheapest available. The area you will be working in requires furniture that is flexible, durable, and typically has a variety of accessories to work with as you expand or adapt. Start by considering the quality. This piece of furniture isn’t for a college dorm room, this LAN Rack will be used as a tech bench, holding heavy equipment and possibly require mounting capabilities for monitors and tools so it’s best to find something quality, made in the USA, with a Lifetime Warranty.

Purchasing furniture also requires some forethought on shipping logistics. Are you purchasing something pre-assembled? Will it fit through doorways and hallways? Is this shipped knocked down, saving cost, but requiring you to put it together? How difficult and how long will it take to place together? These are all questions that need to be considered before you purchase. We recommend an easily assembled, knocked down version of quality IT furniture.

Find furniture that is modular. Having the ability to adjust to new demands, add sections, or add components down the road will save massive amounts of money. Also having the ability to built vertically will save you valuable space in your data center.
