How To Move A Server Rack The Easy Way
Perhaps we should start this discussion with how not to move a server rack. The traditional method has been to power down, remove all connections then painstakingly uninstall every server. Lift them out one at a time using the RackLift™ 600RS and then transport the empty cabinet to its new location only to reverse the process to reinstall and reconnect all the devices. How much time, energy and risk does that create?
