To determine these qualities, consider what kind of equipment will be placed in the lack and the quantity. Standard sized racks are normally selected because the standard size devices are easily integrated in the rack. The server rack depth is the distance from front rail to the back of the back rail.

The Rack Unit (U or RU) is the unit of measurement used to define the vertical space available in an equipment rack.  It is applied to the server rack as well as the devices they hold. It is standardized as multiples of 1.75 inches (44.45 mm) or one rack unit or “U”. Most racks are sold in the 42U form, which means a single rack can hold forty-two (42) 1U devices, or any combination of 1U, 2U, 3U or other rack unit heights that add up to 42 or less.
