VSP 9000 Network Rack
« on: June 20, 2013, 01:02:12 PM »
Just out of curiosity does anyone have suggestions on Network Racks for the VSP 9000? Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Any rack will do, but go for a decent rack with enough room to mount the chassis and accessories, cable guides etc..

There are severel brands available, but we work a lot with Rittal. eg the TS IT: http://www.rittal.com/com-en/product/list/variations.action?categoryPath=/PG0001/PG0800ITINFRA1/PG0039ITINFRA1/PGR10466ITINFRA1/PRO29845ITINFRA1&productID=PRO29845

Any rack will do as it only requires two posts.  It doesn't require a 4 post rail system.  However, the VSP 9000 is extremely deep so if you plan on getting an enclosed rack make sure it's deep enough. 

Also, make sure you buy a proper data comm rack.  Seen too many people use server racks for switches and it never ends well.

Height: 61.91cm (24.375in.) or 14RU
Width: 44.45cm (17.5in.)
Depth: 82.55cm (32.5in.)

Weight (empty): 73kg (160lb)
Weight (fully loaded): 131kg (288lb)

Thank you for your inputs. Johan does that rack support the correct heating/cooling? I know the VSP 9000's run very hot and I just would like to make sure that there is enough air flow and cooling.

I think those racks all come with perforated metal doors to allow for correct cooling, like in most server racks.

But they have other models also with integrated fans if needed.

I use the Liebert/Emerson/Knurr racks in my data center along with the Emerson PDUs and they work great.

Good Luck!

In my past data centers for the network gear we used Rittal racks.  Very nice to use if you have the ones with the extra space on the sides to allow lots of cables to be run.
