Rugged Rackmount Server Case

Client: Microsoft
Application: Business, IT
Description: Microsoft came to us looking for a rackmount server case that was shock-resistant and tamperproof, while allowing the equipment to operate inside the case.
Customization: Custom Cooling, Custom Fit, Custom Data & Power Ports

Most servers live in data centers where the environment is rigorously controlled. Air handlers, large-scale cooling systems, micron-level air filters, strict physical security controls and vibration-dampened flooring all work to make sure that the servers are working in optimum conditions. 

But sometimes, servers need to operate in less than ideal conditions. Whether it’s for the needs of the mobile military, disaster relief, oil and gas exploration or other high-power mobile computing requirements, these servers need to operate in conditions that would make most data-center operators feel faint. 

When Microsoft needed a rugged rackmount server case, they initially went to Pelican-Hardigg. Once Pelican-Hardigg learned about the scope of the customizations that would be required, they referred Microsoft’s engineers to us.

Our team worked with Microsoft to develop a custom case that met their exact requirements. This involved modifying the fit of the case to house their servers, implementing custom cooling fans to keep the servers running efficiently and building in custom ports for both data and power connections.

The cases were also designed to be tamperproof and shock-resistant.  


Microsoft’s team was thrilled with the custom rackmount server cases. They met Microsoft’s needs perfectly, and are still in use today.
