An in-home small server rack is popular for home cloud service, media, central backup, home automation, and home security.

Our 8U and 12U network equipment rack cabinets are most common and can be tucked away in a closet or placed on any flat surface or floor.
What is a 12U server rack?
The “U” is a standard measuring unit for rack mount type equipment. 1U is equal to 1.75” in height. So, a 12U server rack would have 21” (12 x 1.75”) of usable space. The 8U server rack, also common for home use, would have 14” (8 x 1.75”) of internal space commonly called a desktop server rack. This type of heavy-duty equipment rack cabinet for home use will help secure your equipment and provide years of service in nearly any environment.
