So what is everybody using to manage their racks. We are currently using MediaWiki with quite a lot of custom templates for the servers/racks and virtualised instances.

I looked at racktables.org and Rackmonkey. Both look quite nice but don't quite do what I want. The feature set I'm looking for:

  • manages physical Servers
    • manages their components (RAM, CPU, HD, Network)
  • locations (Racks)
    • connectivity (contract data like runtime, bandwith, and such)
  • manages virtualised servers
    • on which physical server are they
    • which instances do exist
  • moving components between it's enclosures (CPU is in a Physical server, phys. server is in a rack) should be easily possible

  • Looks interesting, I'm using Racktables right now, but the interface feels like something from 90's. it's a shame there is so few picture of the interface on there site. – Ninja Jul 28 '11 at 10:29
  • It's cheap, developer is really helpful, deployed in a DC environment with 500-1000 servers. – sjas May 16 '16 at 19:40
