Wallmount rack for a tower server?
I have a tower format backup server that needs to be mounted securely (with ups) to a wall in one of our remote buildings. Does such a wallmount rack exist, or am I breaking out the mig and some angle iron?
I've seen a couple for 1-2U rackmount servers, but not a lot for tower servers (or something I could modify to accept them safely).
Bonus attached diagram to explain what I mean.

I haven't seem anything like this, the best bet will be to have something made.

Yeah, after ringing around 15 or so people, that's the conclusion I've drawn, was just hoping an Edugeek might have found something similar.
I have the contact details of a guy who does custom fabrication, we'll see how much it would cost to scratch-build.

Does it have to mount to the wall or would bolting to the floor suffice?

+1 for the floor idea. never yet come across a room that doesn't have one.

Dataracks do a 700wx600dx550h coms cabinet with the option of a steel door around £200.Videk Online we have a Dell poweredge sc1430 and ups in one wall mounted if thats any good?

Ideally, I'd prefer mounted to the wall as opposed to taking up floorspace - I'm borrowing space from a dept and they don't have a lot of it to start with.
I recall seeing one of those somewhere in a nearby school. Might have to visit with a tape measure.

I guess you could buy a shelf/tray for the cabinet (one that secures on all 4 corneres in the cabinet to take the weight) and sit the server/UPS on top of it?

That's what Ozzy has got me thinking - in most of our wallmount boxes that isn't possible (2-part swingout jobs), but the datarack cab + shelf looks promising. 45kg load weight is well over what I need.

Yes indeed, with a shelf in for the server and ups to sit on
