LONDON--()--Technavio has announced the top seven leading vendors in their recent global data center rack market 2017-2021 report. This market research report also lists 16 other prominent vendors that are expected to impact the market during the forecast period.

Competitive vendor landscape

According to the research analysis, the global data center rack market comprises of several vendors who offer a variety of rack solutions for data center facilities worldwide. 42U racks are offered by almost every vendor and are the most preferred product. Vendors also include customized racks to support the specific requirements of data center operators. The upcoming facilities are more likely to support the higher rack heat density, which will require the support for advanced rack-level cooling. The need for rack enclosures with accessories will be high for better cable management. Open frame rack architecture is adopted in small and enterprise-owned facilities. However, this will depend on the requirement of end-users.

Many data center rack vendors offer rack enclosures that support the mounting of IT equipment. As server and storage equipment grows inside a data center, there will be a need for taller rack architecture that can support more equipment and adjust to increased cable management and cooling requirement.

“Almost all the vendors in the data center rack market offer rack enclosures to containment solutions that support industry standards with strong expertise through several commercial deployments,” says Navin Rajendra, lead data center analyst from Technavio.
