Add a data center

You define the physical topology of a data center by first adding a data center and specifying its dimensions. Then, within that space, you add and position racks containing enclosures, server hardware, and power delivery devices. You can now use the appliance to manage and monitor the power and cooling of the enclosures, servers, and power delivery devices in your data center.
