Mafi Mushkila’s data centre testing division has been renamed heatload.co.uk in a move designed to better reflect its activities in this area. As an established and respected supplier of monitoring tools and state-of-the-art heat load, load banks and server emulators within the IT space, Chichester based heatload.co.uk will continue to provide equipment to projects around the world and educate end users about the vital role of data centre testing.

Since its formation in 2002, the company has gained an enviable reputation for its expertise and heatload.co.uk will build on this success. As well as a new website, all of heatload.co.uk’s products will be rebranded using a freshly designed corporate identity, which combines two internationally recognisable symbols – the wavy lines which indicate heat and the circular loading symbol that is synonymous with information gathering on IT devices. The new logo provides a visual interpretation of the services the company offers and will appeal to customers around the globe.

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.

These products have been successfully employed in data centres across a diverse array of vertical sectors including finance, petrochemical, military, pharmaceutical and telecommunications, as well as some of the world’s leading colocation facilities. All units can be supplied on a rental only basis or as part of a managed load testing service package.

The official launch of heatload.co.uk will take 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 exciting 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. DatacenterDynamics Converged is a great place to tell the industry about what we have got planned for the company and I’m looking forward to welcoming delegates to Stand 105, where our team of experts will also be available to answer any questions and demonstrate how our products can help them benefit from highly efficient and robust data centres.’

After designing and building data centres for the financial services industry in the 1990s - when the term `data centre' was still in its infancy - Mafi Mushkila has adapted its services to the changing needs of its clients. Most recently, this has evolved into the specialist area of server emulators - rack-mounted systems that provide heat and electrical load testing facilities before costly servers are installed in a data centre. Developing specialised technology to meet the server load testing requirements of clients, Mafi Mushkila now provides extensive consultancy and testing services to companies, many of whom need to operate their data centres in remote locations with minimal staffing. This makes robustness and self-reliance a watchword in modern data centres - effective testing before the server equipment is installed helping to ensure good IT systems reliability and longevity. www.mafi-mushkila.co.uk.
