products & innovations HEATLOAD’S NEW 200A AND 250A THREEPHASE POWER DISTRIBUTION BOARDS SET NEW STANDARDS IN DATA CENTRE TESTING HeatLoad has announced the availability of 200A and 250A three-phase power distribution boards, as part of the ongoing expansion of its test equipment portfolio. The new products will prove invaluable in ensuring that a facility is able to perform as expected, even if the final power distribution equipment has not yet been installed. The new power distribution boards are supplied pre-wired with eight 32A three-phase outlets. Each unit is capable of powering six or eight 22kW three-phase floor standing heat load units and their use is perfect for facilities that have not completed final fit out but still require infrastructure testing. HeatLoad currently has sufficient stock to power approximately 2MW of load, while the number of units available can be increased to meet customer demand in less than a week. HeatLoad’s 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 Dell SD7000-S combines Scality RING software and Dell systems for high capacity environments, and is an ideal solution for large-scale file and object storage requirements. The SD7000-S with Scality RING expands to multiple petabytes and billions of objects with near linear performance scaling, offering joint customers a single source for acquisition, deployment and support. To date, Scality and Dell have worked together to build software-defined storage infrastructures for managed service providers, government agencies, and media and entertainment organisations. The use of object storage drives better economics, increases scalability and offers flexible data protection. This partnership with Dell is the latest in a series of strategic achievements Scality has secured over the past 18 months, including new customers, distribution agreements, and a global resale agreement. Dell has previously offered Scality RING-based solutions built on its Dell PowerEdge server, Dell Storage and Dell Networking portfolio.
