I am dabbling into the world of rack servers and trying to teach myself a thing or two.
I have come to a roadblock about the width of a rack server, I have read that the standard width for a rack server is 48.26 cm/19 inches (Therefore rack server cabinets will have a width of 19 inches) yet I see many rack servers out there that have different widths.
My question is that if the width varies depending on each server then how do you get it to fit in the cabinet if they have been made to hold 19 inch servers?
I know its a silly question but it just completely baffles me.
The server here is 43 cm/16.9 inches:
In what scenario would this server be useful? How would you rack it?
