I think you will need a sound-proofed rackmount cabinet which is purposely designed to enclose noisy equipment, such as servers, audio and networking equipment, etc. A sound-proofed rackmount cabinet traps and absorbs unwanted noise generated inside.

This question shows a fundamental lack of understanding of hardware, RAID arrays, storage, monitoring, and general IT best-practices. I read this question and can't help but think: Who is actually responsible for this server hardware? Where is ...


With RAID 5 you can only lose 1 disk and have your data remain available. You have lost 3 so you will need to rebuild the RAID and then restore the data from backup. We have a canonical Q&A about RAID levels that may help your understanding.
