Features and Capabilities

Optimized for Cisco Unified Computing System (Cisco UCS)

  • Custom-designed for Cisco infrastructure, including computing, network, and power
  • Offers ample room for power, cooling, cable management, and serviceability
  • Compatible with Cisco UCS Integrated Infrastructure solutions

Advanced rack for the modern data center

  • 16-fold fully welded frame supports 2700 pounds of static load
  • 80 percent perforation on both the front and rear doors
  • Locking front and rear doors and side panels offer added security
  • Top panel with brush baffled cutout for large cables

Tailored fit with power distribution units (PDUs)

  • Compatible with industry standard and tested with Cisco RP-Series PDUs
  • PDU trays for tool-less installation of 0U PDUs
  • Deeper frame and deeply inset PDU tray reduce PDU interference

Easy installation and use

  • Stabilizer feet for safe installation of IT equipment
  • Tool-less cable management options
  • U markings for faster hardware installation
  • A joining kit connects adjacent racks within a row

Cisco R-Series standard and expansion racks are ideal for single and multiple-rack Cisco UCS installations at customer sites. Cisco R-Series dynamic racks and supplemental Cisco UCS integration hardware from certified integrators are required for shipping preracked Cisco UCS systems. Preracking Cisco UCS products in racks not from Cisco voids the Cisco UCS warranty.

Cisco Certified Integrators:

  • Avnet (US and EMEA)
  • Ingram (US)
  • TechData (US)
  • WWT (US)
  • CompuCom (US)
