What is 1U

What is 1U

Your server(s) will be mounted in the rack. A rack is a metal framework that houses electronic equipment and usually contains bays designed to piece of equipment like a server.

The space used by your server(s) is measured in Rack Units (RU or "U-Space"). This is the unit of measurement used for defining the vertical space used. A 'U' is equivalent to 1.75 inches (4.45cm).

  • 1U Server= 1.75" of Vertical Rack Space
  • 2U = 3.5" of Vertical Rack Space
  • 4U = 7.00" of Vertical Rack Space

    A full rack can contains 40 to 42U 1/4 Rack=10U (10 servers of 1U) Half rack =20 U (20 Servers of 1U)

    So, if you have to buy your own server you have to choose a rackmount server (or rack mounted server) it has been designed to live on a rack.
