Introduction

Lenovo 42U 1200 mm Deep Static and Dynamic Rack offerings are industry-standard 19-inch server cabinets that are designed for high availability server environments. They are optimized to help maximize floor space, expedite installation, simplify cable management, and increase accessibility for improved serviceability. With a depth of 1200 mm (approximately 47 inches), these racks offer expansive rear channels with tool-less button mounts for virtually effortless installation of up to six 0U vertical rack strip power distribution units (PDU) or can easily accommodate vertical cable organizers or mounting other equipment.

Did you know?

Dynamic Racks enable you to receive your Lenovo solutions fully installed and integrated in the rack and ready to instantly deploy into your data center. Dynamic Racks are designed to affordably, safely, and securely handle shipping fully loaded configurations up to 950 kg (2,100 lbs), which can help to increase your efficiency by reducing the time and cost that is associated with typical server deployments. However, if you do not need to ship the rack fully loaded, Lenovo offers cost-effective Static offerings that are ideal when doing on-site integration.
