How to represent racks and machines?

I need to model racks, machines and jobs in a data center. Each job is an instance, which runs on one machine inside a rack. I think to use server group in OpenStack but it seems to me very limited. Now I work on an API over OpenStack to manage this datacenter. But I need to know what is the best OpenStack concept to use? Or would an outside solution to OpenStack be better?

How about host aggregates?

With host aggregates, I can modeling jobs inside a machine. And availability zones for racks, but all the racks are in the same datacenter.
