What is a Rack Server?
A rack server is a server specifically designed to be housed in a server rack. Rack mounted servers are known to have higher computing power than tower servers. Rack servers are typically mounted in larger quantities to produce a higher computing efficiency per square foot, as installing the server in a server rack allows for vertical stacking.
What is a Tower Server?
A tower server can best be defined as a server that is housed in an upright standalone cabinet. (See “Beginners Guide to Server Racks” for a detailed explanation of servers and server racks) ” Tower servers are often mistaken for traditional PC’s because of their similar design. Because of this design, tower servers take up a sizeable amount of space and typically are seen in smaller environments.
There are some situations where a traditional rack mounted server needs to be set up like a tower server. RackSolutions provides a Universal Rack-to-Tower conversion kit for this type of scenario. Rack-to-tower servers take up a lot less space than a traditional tower server because of their slender design.
