Dell manufactures rackmount servers and tower servers. Some of these servers have conversion kits that allow them to be utilized in both configurations, however the R900 is not one of them. The Dell R900 does not have a Rack to Tower Conversion Kit like the PE2900. The PE2900 Rack to Tower Conversion Kit replaces various chassis panels and components and what you end up with is a very nice Tower Server. The R900 requires a 3rd Party Rack to Tower Conversion Kit manufactured by RackSolutions. This kit looks like a small furniture dolly molded to the chassis of the R900. The dolly attaches to either side of the R900 with the shoulder screws that would normally attach the rail kit to the chassis. The casters allow the R900 to be easily rolled around wherever it’s needed. There are several places on the dolly to tie off cables and there’s even four lifting handles built into the dolly itself. This Rack to Tower Conversion Kit for the R900 provides an economical and versatile solution to utilizing the Dell R900 in a Tower Configuration.
