Skinless Servers

Skinless servers are designed with a reduced amount of rack, chassis and, in some cases, even motherboard components to maximize server density potential and reduce material use and power consumption. Typical designs involve a lack of outside sheet metal coverings (hence the term “skinless”) over individual servers, as well as shared power and cooling resources within the rack frame.
