BELLEVUE, Wash., June 14, 2011 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- H-Squared, LLC today announced the availability of the Mini rack featuring iLumi-a rack mount system for the Apple Mac mini. Created with the server farm in mind, the Mini rack features an all-aluminum rail that holds up to 6 Mac minis on a standard rack shelf and displays key system processes on the iLumi status panel. Unlike other rack mount solutions, the Mini rack is designed to be installed vertically - meaning that on a standard shelf, up to 18 Mac minis can be mounted in just under 5U of space.

"The Mac mini is a great server for cluster computing, render farms, or co-location services. Eighteen Mac minis in just under 5U is perfect for space-constrained server facilities. The Mini rack enables our customers to get the most out of their premium rack space," said Jeremy Hubbell, President of H-Squared. Included with the Mini rack is the immensely popular Mini mount. Each Mac mini is coupled with a Mini mount and then slid into the Mini rack to provide a sturdy mounting solution that not only holds the Mac minis in place, but also features a center "U channel" to organize the multitude of cables.

The iLumi status panel features a series of full-color LEDs that are driven by a small program running on each Mac mini. When a potentially problematic condition develops on the Mac mini, such as high disk usage or higher-than-normal internal temperatures, the iLumi panel will alert IT admins through both light intensity and color. The color, intensity, and even what is monitored is completely configurable by the user.

H-Squared also designed right-angled USB, power, and shielded Ethernet cabling for Mini rack. The right angle reduces the vertical footprint of the cable by up to 50 percent making it possible to mount in under 5U. Each Mini rack will ship with the USB cabling while Power and Ethernet cabling are available separately.
