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.

Web Wiz Carbon Offsetting 2018-2019

16 October 2018, in Web Wiz News, Hosting Services

World Land TrustAt Web Wiz we are committed to cutting our carbon emissions and off-setting those carbon emissions that we cannot eliminate.

While much of the electric power we use comes from our on-site Solar Panel Array we still need to use utility electricity at times.

While our electricity provider uses only 100% Renewable Energy Sources, like everyone else in the UK our electricity comes from the National Grid which uses a mixture of renewable, nuclear, coal, and gas. We therefore still offset all the electricity that we use.

For the 8th year, we have partnered with the World Land Trust through their Carbon Balanced Programme to offset our Carbon Emissions.

For in-depth information on how our contributions help protect carbon-rich wildlife habitats, the World Land Trust has provided us with a Carbon Balanced Report.

UK Solar Powered Data Centre

11 September 2018, in Web Wiz News, Eco Data Centre

Solar Powered Data CentreIn May 2018 we opened our new purpose-built UK Eco Data Centre, one of the prime objectives was to build a Green Energy Efficient Data Centre.

Today Web Wiz are pleased to announce the completion of our on-site PV Solar Array that will generate electricity to power both our Eco Data Centre and our Office.

Our PV Solar Array consists of 50 high efficient German made Hanwha Q.Cell Solar Panels able to produce 305 Wp each. To increase the performance further a SolardEdge system has been fitted that uses Power Optimisers on each Solar Panel coupled with a SolarEdge Inverter allowing each Panel to work independently increasing the amount of power generated by up to 25%.

Our Solar Panel Array can provide 7 times more power on a sunny day than is used by our Facility and over a year will produce 80% of the electricity we use in our Data Centre and Office.

Being in the UK sunshine is rather limited especially during the winter months, so we are unable to have a 100% Solar Powered Data Centre, therefore there will be times when we will need to use Utility Power.

For carbon emissions from the use of Utility Power, we have since 2010 partnered with The World Land Trust through their Carbon Balanced Projects to off-set all our carbon emissions.
