In a typical datacenter several new servers, switches, network and storage devices are ordered and kept in a docking area for a long time before hosting them into rack space units by system administrators or asset management teams.
It is a cumbersome task to refer documents or manually determine and assign free rack space units to host new devices. Currently, there are no effective solutions to instantly identify free Rack space units and assign free Rack units as soon as devices arrived in docking area of the datacenter.
The proposed invention helps identify all the free Rack units in each rack of the datacenter using Ultrasound sensor modules fitted to each racks and effectively manage the rack space unit.
