# Rack diagram template

Server rack diagrams visualize the the rack mounting of computer 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 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." [19-inch rack. Wikipedia]
"A rack unit, U or RU is a unit of measure that describes the height of equipment designed to mount in a 19-inch rack or a 23-inch rack. The 19-inch (482.6 mm) or 23-inch (584.2 mm) dimension refers to the width of the equipment mounting frame in the rack including the frame; the width of the equipment that can be mounted inside the rack is less. One rack unit is 1.75 inches (4.445 cm) high.
The size of a piece of rack-mounted equipment is frequently described as a number in "U". For example, one rack unit is often referred to as "1U", 2 rack units as "2U" and so on.
A typical full size rack is 42U, which means it holds just over 6 feet of equipment, and a typical "half-height" rack would be 18-22U, or around 3 feet high." [Rack unit. Wikipedia]

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.

## How to Create a Rack Diagram

A Rack Diagram represents the rack mounting of network and computer equipment that is installed as a server. Rack diagrams are used by system administrators and network architectors when making a decision regarding the purchase of network equipment. It is used to show how a particular server configuration can be composed, without making its physical installation. ConceptDraw DIAGRAM enhanced with the Rack Diagrams Solution can be successfully used for making various rack diagrams. It's important that the solution used to create a rack diagram contains templates that stick to industry standards, and supplies a big selection of device icons to cover multiple types of equipment for a number of network configurations.
