GizMac XRackPro2 to ship
GizMac is planning to ship a new model of its XRackPro2 server cabinet within the next few weeks, according to the company. Designed to combat the noise common to server rooms, the new 6U size will join the existing 4U, 12U and 25U models, which are all said to cut fan and disk noise down by as much as 75-80 percent. The 6U is compatible with all major brand configurations such as Apple, Linux, SGI, Sun, Unix, and Windows. The device boasts a depth of 32 inches, which should allow most rack-mounted hardware to fit. GizMac is targeting the new server rack for a late February release at a price of $750.
