I am looking for a software tool helping me to find an optimized place where new datacenter components, such as servers and network devices, should be placed.
Important criteria are:
- climate of room and of rack
- output of rack
- power consumption of new device
- rack units
- SAN-Ports free/needed
- LAN-Ports free/needed
There are tools for doing listings to find out which component is where placed (common DCIM tools). But how to find the optimized place for new devices. Which tool (plugin, module) could help ?
