Managing a data center is no easy feat. From cable-management challenges to space and cooling concerns, there’s a lot to contend with. To get the job done, your data center customers need cabinets and enclosures that are easy to assemble, fit a wide range of layout specifications, reduce labor and energy costs, and meet unique thermal and cable-management requirements.
To help you address the needs of individual data center customers, we’ve wrangled up a few of our most popular cabinet and enclosure solutions:
Legrand Ortronics Q-Series Cabinet
In the data center, there’s a lot to juggle, and assembling and installing cabinets should be the least of your worries. In a perfect world, you’d get your hands on a cabinet that could be fitted with ease for all layout specifications. Ideally, you’d also avoid the headache that comes with mounting depth, measuring space at front and rear, and avoiding obstructions.

NetShelter™ SX From APC By Schneider Electric
Data center managers are tasked with cutting energy costs and quickly integrating racks into the environment—all while increasing cable, heat, and power densities. For today’s data center, that’s a tall order. But all-white cabinets allow for lower, more energy-efficient lighting, without sacrificing performance. Because Schneider Electric believes that efficiency and performance shouldn’t be black and white.

In real life, all white isn’t exactly practical: T-shirts amass mustard, jeans get dirty, and trucks collect dust. But in the data center, all-white cabinets allow workers to see in low light. When it comes to installation and energy efficiency, the NetShelter SX is a time-saving, energy-slashing powerhouse. This all-white, feature-rich enclosure allows IT managers to quickly integrate racks into the environment and cut energy costs—all while increasing cable, heat, and power densities.
