Rack Integration and Design Services

Consult, design, build, test, deliver.

Put simply, Rack integration is the act of building computers (and ancillary parts) into a 19" cabinet, allowing for a fast and efficient deployment. The not so simple part is doing it well.

At our dedicated and secure facility in Hampshire, Novatech has been designing and manufacturing specialised and advanced compute, simulation, network and storage solutions for close to 30 years.

Integrated Racks are deployed mainly in industries and mission-critical applications where continuous operation is crucial and downtime is costly. Therefore it is vital that the planning, design and installation is carried out with the highest level of technical expertise, understanding and precision.

We offer a complete end-to-end project management service. From consultation, design, build and test, through to the delivery and installation of pre-configured, ready to go racks.

To ensure the optimum reliability and consistent quality, we take care of the following:

  • Power and cooling requirements
  • Cable layout and coding
  • Complete rack integration, imaging and testing
  • Hardware and networking configuration to your spec
  • Specific software requirements
  • Documentation and detailed labelling
  • Global logistics
  • Installation, support and maintenance options


save time and money

Save time & money

Rack integration can be expensive and a huge drain on resources, as can sourcing the components required from a variety of suppliers. Novatech manage the whole build process and supply chain for you, giving you one point of contact for the entire project.

work faster

Get results faster

Deploying complicated IT hardware can take up a lot of time and resources at the design, test, build and installation phases. Our solutions are delivered ready to go, straight out of the box, built and configured exactly to your spec.

compliance testing

Fully compliant

We have established a Quality Management System in accordance with the requirements of ISO 9001:2008. Our processes and procedures ensure we meet and exceed our customer's compliance requirements and expectations.

How it works

As with everything we do at Novatech we start with a consultation, this may also include a site visit to take into account in any factors that may affect the build and installation. From there your designated project manager will work alongside our solutions architects to create a detailed layout and integration plan that will meet your requirements and suit your environment. We also take care to ensure that we only select components that can deliver longevity to avoid obsolescence

Once your build has been assembled, racked, cabled and labelled, it is then extensively tested at both the server and rack level. Depending on the project plan we also go beyond basic tests to include thermal testing, power usage effectiveness and extended burn-in times.

To ensure safe transport we ship all of our racks in custom built shock resistant crates. Depending on your preference the racks can either be shipped unpopulated, where the components are individually boxed, then re-integrated on your premises (which is often the safer method). Or we can supply you with a fully populated complete rack, ready to go straight out of the box. Either way, we can supply you with all the documentation and support to ensure that setup and installation run as smoothly as possible.
