Being an active part of the digital age, we are well aware of how annoying can the buzzing noise from an equipment be. It is even more problematic when we are required to be productive, but the constant sound becomes a hindrance. This noise from active IT equipment in a high-technology workspace can lead to health issues like loss of productivity, work slowdown due to depression, and hearing impairment. Prolonged exposure can lead to serious health issues too.

Soundproof rack is an ideal option to minimize this sound. Switching to an acoustic rack can reduce the noise drastically to a level of 30 dBA. The audibility in an office space can vary anywhere between 48dBA to 78 dBA. So, if a device reduces the noise limit up to 30 dBA, it would mean the sound equivalent to that of a whisper's level. Designed specifically to get rid of the equipment noise, an acoustic rack is considered the best soundproof server cabinet as they are lined with a fire retardant, multilayer acoustic material within the inner surfaces to achieve a superior level of noise reduction from high frequency noise. Hence, the Acoustic Rack Active from Netrackis a desirable solution for such noise issues.

Soundproof rack cabinets are also equipped with Active noise-cancelling technology which is highly effective in reducing low-frequency noise. The ASFT (Active Silence Fan tray) in acoustic racks reduces the noise produced by auxiliary fans and installed equipment noise to the surrounding noise level

Is it possible to soundproof a bird cage?

It is possible to cut down the amount of noise coming from the cage, but not to soundproof it 100%. You will need to buy thickly padded sound-absorption sheets around the cage. Here is a great how-to article I found on doing just this.

The product stickers are on the top of each server on the left rear corner. As each series has many variants it is best to look at the sticker. There should be screens on each side of each server these are screwed into the rack brackets. Unscrew them and slide the server out (they are on rails so they shouldn't fall.)
When you have the sticker details you can download and install HP Bulletin it has detailed info on all HP products

Note that you need to have MS370 rack Kit to be able to successfully do the conversion.

Meaning of Symbols on Hd rack?

If the server is configured with split SCSI channels these indicate which bays are part of each of the two channels. The common use for this would be to use the split with two drives for a RAID 1 system drive and the remaining four for RAID 5 data or in some cases two sets of RAID 1.

Hard disk space

Check on the HP website for BIOS updates and Firmware updates for your raid controller. This sounds very odd that there is a 28GB limitation on drive size? What size drives are in there now? They usually step up in size like 9GB, 18GB, 36GB, 72GB, etc.... Your IT guy maybe misinformed.
