Web Wiz - Solar Powered Eco Web Hosting


Web Wiz Eco Data Centre


Solar Powered Data Centre Web Wiz operates our purpose-built Eco-Friendly Data Centre located in Poole, Bournemouth, Dorset on the South Coast of the UK.


The privately-owned facility was designed and built by Web Wiz and completed in May 2018. The Eco Data Centre offers excellent security, resilience and connectivity.


Our Eco Data Centre has been built with three aims in mind, eco-friendly, over-engineering and robustness. We believe that a solid investment in the best energy-efficient infrastructure will allow us to provide reliable and sustainable hosting services.


According to Greenpeace Clean Click 2017 Report, Data Centres will rank by the middle of next decade among the largest users of electrical power on the planet!


We have designed our Data Centre in alignment with the Uptime Institute Tier-III guidelines with systems being N+1 and concurrently maintainable. We have chosen not to have a certified based tiering level so that we have the flexibility to our eco-friendly ethics. An example would be the Standby Power Generator which for environmental reasons is powered by Natural Gas would not meet the guidelines of storing 72 hours of fuel on-site. Although we have not engaged the Uptime Institute to certify our design, we welcome our customers to put us to the test!
