Sonnet RoHS RackMac Mini Rackmount Enclosure (Green Friendly)
Rack 'Em Up!
Mac mini computers make sweet servers for most applications. However, integrating them into a rack poses some challenges. How do you securely mount the minis? How do you keep them cool? How do you turn them on without pulling them out of the rack? How do you plug in a thumb drive for a quick update? Sonnet's RackMac mini solves all these challenges and more!
Server Room Sociable
This fully-assembled rackmount solution for the latest line of Macģ mini servers and computers supports the installation of one or two Mac minis side-by-side into 1U of rack space. Constructed of rugged steel, the RackMac mini places the computers behind a smart front panel. The RackMac mini's design manages airflow through the computers to keep them as cool as ambient air. Stack them close and stack them high for a Mac mini server farm. The RackMac mini provides a front panel power switch and front panel USB port for each computer; built in panel-mount cables connect the ports to your computers' USB ports!
Road Trip Ready
Do you need to take your mini on the road? The RackMac miniís internal rubber bumpers holds your computers firmly in place even during transport in portable racks. Combine this with a shallow 11-inch mounting depth, and you have a product perfect for use in transportable rack applications, such as those from Gator Cases. The RackMac mini is a perfect solution for musicians or DJs! The RackMac mini's design also allows normal WiFi and Bluetooth wireless operation in most configurations (depending on rack type and position in rack), so you can use iPhone or iPod Touch application control apps.
For each Mac mini, the RackMac mini includes front panel access to each computerís DVD (if present), IR receiver, power indicator, power switch, and one USB port. At the front panel you can turn on each Mac mini, plus connect a keyboard, mouse or USB drive.
RackMac mini allows open access to the computers' ports in the rear of the enclosure. Holes for cable ties enable you to secure all cables, keeping them tidy while avoiding accidental disconnects.
Cool as a Cucumber
RackMac mini secures your Mac miniís without trapping them in recirculating hot rack air. A strategically designed chamber directs cool air in a one-way path through front panel openings to the computersí air intakes, and then out the back.
Super Accessory for a SuperDrive
Believe it or not, some people still use DVDs and CDs, but the latest Mac mini and Mac mini Server don't have a disc slot. Apple does offer a standalone optical disc drive, better known as the Apple MacBook Air SuperDrive, which connects to a USB port and allows you to play and burn CDs and DVDs. Sonnet has created an easy to install bracket for this optical drive that enables you to securely install the device in the left bay of the RackMac mini with no fuss; like the SuperDrive, it's the essence of simplicity.
