Rack space is the area where computer servers along with audio and video equipment are located in the data center and form an integral part of a computer server cabinet installation. Placing server along with the audio, video equipment is useful as it saves energy. Rack space is not a new concept as it has been around for years and with the process adopted by the centralized network resources, this has become quite popular for storing server and central equipment. The need of rack space arises in colocation where a client place their server machine in the space alloted by the colocation service provider.
