In addition to large corporations, telephone companies and computer centers in universities, many medium-sized companies are increasingly using their own servers to store important data, and mobile sound studios in server form are also used at concerts and major events.
A 19-inch rack is a standardized plug-in housing for accommodating several modules whose front panels are 19 inches (approx. 48 cm) wide. Depending on the intended use, these 19-inch modules differ in height and design. The height of the individual modules is specified in U (rack unit) or German HE (height unit), whereby one HE is 1.752 inches (44.45 mm) high.
