Finding a rack for my rack-mounted hard drives
on Nov 17, 2014 at 8:03:11 pm

Hello Creative Cow,

I've recently assembled six LaCie 48TB Rack-mounted hard drives. The boxes contained all the materials needed to mount the drives inside of a rack of some kind, but it doesn't provide any recommendations beyond that point (and obviously doesn't include a rack.)

My research so far today has made me more hesitant to order something, as it doesn't seem like a subject that has a lot of attention. Before proceeding I would love to hear from somebody who has done this before!

Here is a link where you can find the exact specifications of the hard drive arrays that I'm working with:

The dimensions of the unit are:

Dimensions (WxHxD) 18.9 x 30.4 x 1.7" / 477 x 772 x 44 mm

It seems like my options are to buy very simple rails, which seem to come in pairs, and that would give me the most flexibility as far as dimensions are concerned.

I would love to have some kind of cabinet that has wheels on it, however, and then I am faced with the situation of finding a setup that fits the correct dimensions. One unit that I'm looking at - and it would be nice to find something similar - is:

Any advice on the situation would be awesome! Thanks in advance. I will continue researching as well.
