The importance of testing a data centre infrastructure prior to going live is widely acknowledged as a key element in ensuring that it achieves optimal performance for the duration of its design life. To do this, heatload.co.uk mimics the electrical and other performance characteristics of the IT equipment as closely as possible using its specialist heat load, load banks and server emulators.
The impressive range of devices on offer from heatload.co.uk includes rack mounted single-phase emulators that are available as 2kW or 3.75kW units. Mobile racks are available in 12, 16 and 30U sizes and allow the load banks and server emulators to be installed in various configurations to meet capacity, density and rack layout requirements. In addition, its floor standing single-phase 2kW and 3kW units or three phase 9kW, 15kW and 22kW offerings are ideal for use in colocation facilities, where racks are often not installed until the customer makes a final decision on their infrastructure needs.
The official launch of heatload.co.uk took place at DatacenterDynamics Converged on 18th-19th November at ExCeL, London. The company is also planning a series of knowledge transfer presentations during 2016, which will offer data centre developers, designers and operators a unique opportunity to find out the best practices, methodologies and products required to effectively test their facilities.
Commenting on this development, Dave Wolfenden, managing director of heatload.co.uk, said, ‘Our new name perfectly represents what we do and will help cement our position as the industry leader in data centre testing.’
