Eco Data Centre Achieves 100% Uptime Since Opening

20 May 2019, in Web Wiz News, Eco Data Centre

100% Network UptimeIt has been 1 year since we opened our Eco Data Centre on the 17th of May 2018. In this year our Eco Data Centre has accomplished 100% Uptime with no outages to our Network.

To reach 100% Uptime, we have built a Multihomed Network with Diverse BGP Routing using multiple fibre connections from BT OpenReach and Virgin Media entering our facility at opposite ends of the building.

100% Uptime is an incredible achievement for a new Data Centre as there are usually teething issues in the first year, and we are all very proud of this achievement.

Even after dark, our Hosting is still powered by the Sun

09 May 2019, in Web Wiz News, Eco Data Centre

TeslaThanks to our new Tesla rechargeable lithium-ion battery system we are now able to store the excess energy generated by our on-site Solar Panel Array to use overnight, allowing our Eco Data Centre to be powered by the Sun even after the Sun has gone down!

Our Eco Data Centre and Office are powered by our on-site Solar Panel Array of 50 high-efficiency PV Solar Panels which can produce up to eight times more renewable electricity energy than we currently require. 

Our new Tesla rechargeable lithium-ion battery system is able to store this excess energy which is then used to power our Eco Data Centre during the night.

Data Centre Free Air Cooling and Heat Recovery

22 February 2019, in Web Wiz News, Eco Data Centre

Direct Air (DA), Free Air CoolingIn May 2018 when we opened our new purpose-built Eco Data Centre, one of the prime objectives was to build an Ecological Energy Efficient Data Centre.

Since the opening of our Eco Data Centre, we have been working to improve the efficiency, this includes developing a Direct Air (DA), Free Air Cooling and Heat Recovery System.

The system uses the mild climate we have here in the UK to cool our Eco Data Centre using digitally controlled EC Ducting Fans with the waste warm air circulated within our facility. This keeps our Servers cool and our Office at a snug 20C even on the coldest days.  

We have been operating our Free Air Cooling and Heat Recovery system since the start of this winter and during that time have not needed any additional heating in our Office, even during the recent snowy period.

The new system has reduced our facilities Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) rating to just 1.16 making it one of the most efficient Data Centres in the world.

Brexit, Will You Lose Your .EU Domain?

06 February 2019, in Domain Names

BrexitBrexit is almost here and while the politicians cannot make their minds up if the UK will be leaving, staying, no-dealing or dealing with the EU, one thing is for sure, unless the UK ends up staying UK owners of .EU domains will lose their .EU domains in as little as 3 months!

The European Commission who set the rules on who can register .EU domains have told the EURid registry that runs the .EU namespace that they must revoke .EU domains that have a UK registrant address.

This date could be as soon as the end of May 2019 if the UK leave the EU with no-deal or December 2020 if the UK leaves with a deal.

The EURid registry has issued the following notice which has further information on how Brexit will affect .EU domains:


If you are the owner of a .EU domain and live within the UK then it is worth investigating moving to an alternative domain.

At Web Wiz we can help you transition to a new domain name. Just contact us for more information.
