Why should you mount your equipment vertically in a data rack?

When selecting a data rack, once you know what size you need in terms of depth and RU, you have the option to mount your equipment horizontally or vertically.

Redback Racks have designed a series of specialty racks where you are able to mount your equipment vertically.

 

 

What are the advantages of mounting your equipment vertically?

Mounting your equipment vertically creates a smaller footprint, allowing the rack to fit into smaller more compact spaces.
