Rackmount Monitor Basics: Choosing the Right Setup

What is a Rackmount Monitor?

While there are different styles of rack mount monitors, their main purpose is to provide a quick and convenient window into your servers. Since they mount directly to the server rack, they give you access to the console video without requiring a remote connection. Now, let’s talk about your options when purchasing a rackmount monitor system from General Technics.

I’m Looking for Ease of Use

Coming in 8U size with both 17 inch and 19 inch monitor options, the General Technics LCD monitor and frame combo allows you to easily monitor your system’s information as frequently as you need to without having to open the rack. In keeping with ease of use, these displays can also be purchased separately for easily installed replacements and upgrades. In addition, touchscreen models are available in the 17 inch size.
