DATA CENTER HEAT LOAD TESTING EQUIPMENT FOR HIRE

So, why should you use server emulators and heat load units instead of servers to test the operation and reliability of a data center?

Using servers is impractical for the following reasons:

  • Extremely expensive to fill the data center with servers.
  • IT implementation plan (and load profile) may be such that the facility may not reach 100% load for many years.
  • Servers are designed to increase and decrease power consumption depending on the processing requirement of an application. Testing requires stable, predictable loads.
  • Potential for damage to IT equipment as a result of power downs, failed tests and failed cooling.
  • Time to reset servers after each test

Instead of using servers, you can hire heat load and server emulators.
