Announcing Our New Hyper-V Servers15 February 2017 - by Web Wiz Customer Care Team
Web Wiz is pleased to announce that we have recently completed our £80,000 ($105,000) upgrade replacing all our Hyper-V Servers for our Shared Hosting and Cloud Server Customers to provide Customers with the best possible performance and uptime.
We build our own servers in house using the latest SuperMicro and Intel parts that we have found 100% reliable over the last 8 years since we switched to building servers ourselves.
By building our own Servers we have complete control over the quality and testing of servers within our own purpose built lab, building each server to the task required.
This allows us to build more power efficient green servers rather than using general purpose off the shelf servers. It also allows us to have spare parts in stock for every eventuality allowing us to quickly swap out any failed parts within minutes rather than waiting for manufactures next day engineer support that once they diagnose the problem can take weeks to return with the replacement parts.
Our new Hyper-V 2016 Servers are built using the latest SuperMicro Motherboards and Chassis, these are paired with the latest Intel Xeon Server CPU’s and DDR4 ECC Server Memory. Storage for our new Hyper-V Servers use next generation NVMe Data Centre Solid State Drives which use the PCIe bus to give 5 times the read and write performance of SATA Solid State Drives that we previously used.
In case things do go wrong with our Hyper-V 2016 Servers we use replication to mirror Servers every 30 seconds to redundant Hyper-V Servers of the same spec and performance allowing very fast recovery of Services in the event of hardware failure.
We hope that these changes improve your hosting experience with Web Wiz, with faster response times, better uptime and minimal service impact if anything does go wrong.
