To get a picture of how the datacentre consumes power day-by-day, Telecity has hundreds of server-simulators (pictured) available that it uses to mimic the expected power load. This helps them find kinks in their power distribution systems before customers put their racks in. The modelling lets Telecity stress-test the power systems' response to demand spikes and expected loads.
