Web Wiz - Solar Powered Eco Web Hosting

Web Wiz Green Data Centre

Solar Powered Data Centre Our eco-friendly data centre, specifically built for our needs, is located in Poole, Bournemouth, Dorset on the south coast of the UK and is operated by Web Wiz.

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

We built our data centre with three goals in mind: being eco-friendly, over-engineered, and robust. We believe that investing in the best energy-efficient infrastructure will enable us to provide reliable and sustainable hosting services.

Our data centre has been built according to the Uptime Institute Tier-III guidelines, ensuring that our systems are N+1 and concurrently maintainable. Although we haven't sought certification from the Uptime Institute, we encourage our customers to test our design.
