The Rack Diagram visualizes in details the rack mounting of computer and network equipment, so it allows to show what equipment and racks are needed to buy, allows to estimate the rack rate and also helps to organize equipment on the racks virtually, without the real installation.
To facilitate the rack diagrams designing, ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and vector drawing software was extended with Rack Diagrams Solution from the Computer and Networks Area.
Example 1. Rack Rate - Virtualized Computer Center
First of all the Rack Diagrams Solution includes collection of predesigned templates and samples of various rack diagrams which is offered in ConceptDraw STORE. You can choose any of them which meets your requirements and change it for your needs.
Example 2. Rack Diagrams Solution in ConceptDraw STORE
Any template or sample can be changed using the vector shapes from the Rack Diagrams library included in the Rack Diagrams Solution. It's the fastest way of the rack rate diagrams designing. Or you can create your own rack diagram at new document.
Example 3. Rack Rate - Typical Server Rack Diagram
The samples you see on this page were created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM using the Rack Diagrams Solution for ConceptDraw DIAGRAM Solution Park. These rack rate diagrams successfully demonstrate solution's capabilities and professional results you can achieve. An experienced user spent 5-10 minutes creating every of these samples.
Use the Rack Diagrams Solution for ConceptDraw DIAGRAM software to create your own professional looking rack diagrams quick, easy and effective.
All source documents are vector graphic documents. They are available for reviewing, modifying, or converting to a variety of formats (PDF file, MS PowerPoint, MS Visio, and many other graphic formats) from the ConceptDraw STORE. The Rack Diagrams Solution is available for all ConceptDraw DIAGRAM or later users.
THREE RELATED HOW TO's:
When describing any computer network, we imagine a set of devices and nodes, arranged in some way. Talking about network structures, we should distinguish physical and logical network topologies, as physical topology is about devices location and logical topology illustrates data flow. In the same time, they do not have to match, and some devices, such as repeaters, may have a physical star layout, but a bus logical topology.
There are two main types of computer network topologies: Physical topology that show the physical organization of a network - equipment and types of connections. Star network topology involves a set of devices that is connected to a single hub (router). Ring network topology means that, devices connected according this topology have two connections, connecting with nearby devices to make a loop. Bus network topology is the topology presented at the current diagram. It is similar to a ring topology. The difference is that data moves up and down a linear connection, copying itself where network equipment works as bus-stations along the way. This network topology can be used for small network, or when adding an extra device into a network.

Drawing workflow diagrams combines both creative and analytic practice. To be the most effective in this process you should find a software that suites this kind of practice. Using ConceptDraw DIAGRAM software for drawing workflow diagrams you get support of features, libraries, templates and samples boosts you creativity and keep you focus on analytic practice, not drawing specifics.

Creating a detailed network plan can cause a lot of headache to an unexperienced user. And it is worth mentioning that ConceptDraw DIAGRAM is a decent tool for creating a network diagram, a tool that is easy-to-use. To get an accurate diagram use the vector shapes from the special libraries that represent workstations, network appliances, wiring systems and connect them with smart-connectors, just as simple as that.
This communication network diagram displays the way different components of a computer network communicate with each other. When representing network information, such as depicting all the equipment in a large network, it is helpful to make visual representation. Network diagram provides an easy way to show the way the connections between an equipment in a large network. This diagram of a communication network depicts a network composed of three sub-networks. It uses a network equipment symbols to represent the different devices that make up a network communication including routers, Ethernet devices and end-point equipment.
