The work presented in this paper aims at developing a vibration control system for fans in data server. The methods used in the work includes numerical, experimental, and analytical approaches with goal placed on developing a mechatronic system that can be used in the data server to reduce structural-born vibrations affecting data access performance in hard disk drives (HDD). It was observed that with the proposed method and system, vibrations of the server structure, the chassis, can be significantly reduced by 88%, which also enhanced the disk drive data access performance.
