Rack Diagrams visualize the rack mounting of computer hardware and network equipment as the drawing of frontal view of the rack with equipment installed.
They are used for choosing the equipment or racks to buy, and help to organize equipment on the racks virtually, without the real installation.
"A server is a system (software and suitable computer hardware) that responds to requests across a computer network to provide, or help to provide, a network service. Servers can be run on a dedicated computer, which is also often referred to as "the server", but many networked computers are capable of hosting servers. In many cases, a computer can provide several services and have several servers running. ...
Servers often provide essential services across a network, either to private users inside a large organization or to public users via the Internet. Typical computing servers are database server, file server, mail server, print server, web server, gaming server, application server..." [Server (computing). Wikipedia]

Server rack diagrams visualize the rack mounting of a computer and network equipment as a frontal view of the rack with the equipment installed. They are used when choosing which equipment or racks to buy, and to see if a particular configuration works, without having to go through a physical install.
"In the hardware sense, the word server typically designates computer models intended for hosting software applications under the heavy demand of a network environment. In this client–server configuration, one or more machines, either a computer or a computer appliance, share information with each other with one acting as a host for the other[s].

While nearly any personal computer is capable of acting as a network server, a dedicated server will contain features making it more suitable for production environments. These features may include a faster CPU, increased high-performance RAM, and increased storage capacity in the form of a larger or multiple hard drives. Servers also typically have reliability, availability and serviceability (RAS) and fault tolerance features, such as redundancy in power supplies, storage (as in RAID), and network connections."

How to Add a Rack Diagram to a PowerPoint Presentation Using ConceptDraw PRO

Rack diagrams are created to make short work of configuring and documenting the server and network equipment of the rack frameworks. Rack diagrams may be useful when considering equipment purchasing, or installing. Using the ConceptDraw Rack Diagrams solution, you can quickly and easily design a rack diagram from the set of vector graphic objects that are fully consistent with accepted industry standards. The Rack diagram will help you when considering and purchasing a rack of network equipment. When installing equipment, a rack diagram will help you to situate equipment quickly and in a due manner. The PowerPoint presentation on concept of your server room rack layouts can be very informative and helpful. ConceptDraw PRO allows you to easily create wireless network diagrams and then make a PowerPoint Presentation from your diagrams in a single click. Read more
The vector stencils library "Rack diagrams" contains 33 rack design elements for drawing the computer network server rack diagrams.
"A 19-inch rack is a standardized frame or enclosure for mounting multiple equipment modules. Each module has a front panel that is 19 inches (482.6 mm) wide, including edges or ears that protrude on each side which allow the module to be fastened to the rack frame with screws. ...
Equipment designed to be placed in a rack is typically described as rack-mount, rack-mount instrument, a rack mounted system, a rack mount chassis, subrack, rack mountable, or occasionally simply shelf. The height of the electronic modules is also standardized as multiples of 1.75 inches (44.45 mm) or one rack unit or U (less commonly RU). The industry standard rack cabinet is 42U tall. ...
19-inch racks in 2-post or 4-post form hold most equipment in modern data centers, ISP facilities and professionally designed corporate server rooms. They allow for dense hardware configurations without occupying excessive floorspace or requiring shelving." [19-inch rack. Wikipedia]

"An application server can be either a software framework that provides a generalized approach to creating an application-server implementation, without regard to what the application functions are, or the server portion of a specific implementation instance. In either case, the server's function is dedicated to the efficient execution of procedures (programs, routines, scripts) for supporting its applied applications." [Application server. Wikipedia]
"Hardware requirement for servers vary, depending on the server application. Absolute CPU speed is not quite as critical to a server as it is to a desktop machine. Servers' duties to provide service to many users over a network lead to different requirements such as fast network connections and high I/O throughout. Since servers are usually accessed over a network, they may run in headless mode without a monitor or input device. Processes that are not needed for the server's function are not used. Many servers do not have a graphical user interface (GUI) as it is unnecessary and consumes resources that could be allocated elsewhere. Similarly, audio and USB interfaces may be omitted. ...
As servers need a stable power supply, good Internet access, increased security and are also noisy, it is usual to store them in dedicated server centers or special rooms. This requires reducing the power consumption, as the extra energy used generates more heat thus causing the temperature in the room to exceed acceptable limits; hence normally, server rooms are equipped with air conditioning devices. Server casings are usually flat and wide (typically measured in "rack units"), adapted to store many devices next to each other in a server rack. Unlike ordinary computers, servers usually can be configured, powered up and down or rebooted remotely, using out-of-band management, typically based on IPMI." [Server (computing). Wikipedia]
A rack diagram is useful for designing and documenting of network rack server equipment (19-inch or 23-inch rack, rack cabinet, rack unit, network switch, router, KVM switch, server) of data centers, ISP facilities and corporate server rooms.

Rack Rate

The Rack Diagram visualizes in details the rack mounting of computer and network equipment, so it allows to show what equipment and racks are needed to buy, allows to estimate the rack rate and also helps to organize equipment on the racks virtually, without the real installation. To facilitate the rack diagrams designing, ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software was extended with Rack Diagrams Solution from the Computer and Networks Area. Read more

The Rack

The Rack Diagrams represent the frontal view of the rack with network equipment installed. They are helpful and widely used for choosing the equipment and racks to buy, and give the possibility to visually plan how to organize it on the racks. Now creating of the Rack Diagrams is quite simple and quick thanks to the powerful drawing tools of the Rack Diagrams Solution from the Computer and Networks Area. Read more
