A server cage is a specific kind of container for physical server hardware; its main use is for security. Providers’ use cages for when a single data center handles operations for multiple clients, is meant to separate client’s hardware to prevent unauthorized crossovers. A major benefit of cages is for example in case of maintenance technicians will only access the client’s particular server cage instead of the entire hardware setup in the server room.
