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.
