Announcing Our New Hyper-V Servers

15 February 2017 - Posted by Web Wiz Customer Care Team, in Web Wiz News, Hosting Services

ServersWeb 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.  Intel NVMe Data Centre SSD
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.

Carbon Balanced - World Land TrustHere at Web Wiz it is important to us to protect our environment.

We aim to reduce the amount of carbon that we produce by building our own energy efficient servers and to off-set the carbon emissions that our business produces we have partnered with the World Land Trust for over 6 years.

The World Land Trust are a UK Registered Charity who have for 27 years worked to conserve the Worlds most threatened habitats and through their Carbon Balanced Programme which protects and restores habitats under imminent threat of destruction they deliver measurable offsets for CO2 emissions.

Our Carbon Balanced contributions to the World Land Trust have helped to protect several reserves across Ecuador including the Río Canandé Reserve in the wet Choco and the dry forests at Laipuna.

The programme is currently focussing on the Nangaritza valley in Southern Ecuador, which protects some of the last foothill rainforests around the Podocarpus National Park.

Windows Server 2016 with IIS 10 Web Hosting

15 October 2016 - Posted by Web Wiz Hosting Team, in Hosting Services

Windows Server 2016 Web HostingWeb Wiz is pleased to announce the release of our updated Web Hosting and Reseller Web Hosting Packages based on Windows Server 2016 platform with Microsoft's latest IIS 10 Web Server.

Windows Server 2016 with IIS 10 offers many new features and enhancements over previous versions including support for HTTP/2.

HTTP/2 is the first new revision of the HTTP protocol used in over two decades to deliver web pages to web browsers and is designed to speed up how fast websites load by utilising one connection for multiple requests and header compression.

While HTTP/2 does not require encryption most web browsers including Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Opera, IE, and Edge only support HTTP/2 when used with SSL/TLS websites. Therefore if you want to take advantage of the extra speed you will also need to have an SSL Certificate for your website, which Web Wiz are able to provide.
