One-Third Rack Benefits and Features

Thinking about moving your IT out of your office space? you can start with a ⅓ rack, a whopping 14U of space from Datanet, your trusted accommodating and helpful Hosting partner.

A ⅓ (one-third) of a full 47U rack gives you 14U of usable space, that is enough for several servers, a firewall a switch and maybe a storage device, quite a lot of space.
