Turn your NUCs
into a server shelf
Are you looking to set up a small web server, an internal file server, a server to host security applications, or a server to host your company’s internal communications? Look no further: the answer is creating a NUC server shelf. We supply the metal chassis to house up to 3 “H” or “K” chassis NUC units. If you aren’t sure which NUCs to use in order to set up a server, we’ve got some suggestions for you.
The Simply NUC 2U Server shelf
This full-metal server shelf conforms to the standard 2U size and will also fit a Telco rack, measuring 5.2″ x 18.9″ x 3.5″ (LxWxH). It’s designed to fit comfortably between neighboring equipment and can be purchased by itself to house up to 3 standard-sized “H” or “K” chassis NUC units. The shelf, itself, is the metal casing which houses the NUC units. The sample configuration in the pictures on this page shows a shelf with three “H” chassis units installed. The shelf chassis has spots designed to secure HDMI cables with panel screws and can be purchased with a package of 3x 1ft HDMI male to HDMI female extension cables.
Getting the Most Out of It
Simply NUC would like to suggest some NUCs for your potential server shelf.
High End Processing
For a high performance server, Simply NUC suggests using a set of 3x Bean Canyon 8i7BEH units. These units feature Intel® Core™ i7-8559U Quad Core, Hyper-thread enabled processors, running at 2.7 GHz with 4.5GHz Turbo Boost, 8 MB Cache, and supporting up to 64 GB of high speed DDR4 RAM and 8 TB of SSD storage. This is one of the most powerful NUC units that Intel® makes, and a group of eight of these should handle most server-based tasks with ease.
If you want remote manageability with an extra layer of security for your NUC server, then Simply NUC would like to suggest picking up 3x vPro enabled, AMT configured Dawson Canyon 7i7DNHE units. The vPro enabled, AMT configured processor lets you access your unit remotely with a layer of hardware-based security to keep your network safe and keep uninvited guests away, and the processor can handle up to 64 GB of DDR4 RAM to get the performance that your server needs.
