Carbon Balanced Green Web Hosting


At Web Wiz we take steps to reduce our emissions at source and are committed to saving energy and recycling wherever possible to reduce the impact of our services on the environment.

The web hosting industry will always have a negative impact on the environment due to the nature of the business but we can try and limit the impact where possible by offsetting any unavoidable emissions.


Carbon Offsetting

Web Wiz will always require the use of energy during our business operations due to the nature of the technology services we provide. To mitigate the effects we are offsetting all our Data Centre, office and transport carbon emissions making Web Wiz a Carbon Balanced Company.
The World Land Trust Carbon Balanced
Web Wiz have chosen The World Land Trust to offset our carbon emissions. The World Land Trust are a UK Registered Charity who have for over 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.

Web Wiz’s Carbon Balanced contributions 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

For more information on The World Land Trust Carbon Balanced Programme please take a look at www.worldlandtrust.org/eco-services/offsetting.


Energy Efficient Green Servers

To reduce the amount of power consumed by our servers we no-longer buy ‘off-the-shelf’ general purposes servers instead we choose to build each server in-house for the job at hand.

This allows us to select components that are more energy efficient such as low voltage Intel Xeon Server Processors. This is more expensive but the power savings are over 60% compared to the traditional servers we replaced while at the same time delivering improved performance.

Some of the benefits of our Eco-Friendly Servers include:
Bullet Each Server is built for a specific job to give optimal performance and reduced power consumption
Bullet Intel Quad-Core Xeon Server Processors (Green Low Voltage versions)
Bullet Intel Solid State NVMe Hard-Drives (low energy and improved performance)
Bullet Supermicro Energy Efficient Motherboards
Bullet Low Voltage DDR4 EEC Memory
Bullet Up to 90% Efficient Certified Switching Power Supplies
Bullet Energy Efficient Cooling with cold isle containment
Bullet Replaced servers and equipment is always recycled

By building our own in-house servers it also has the advantage that our engineers know our servers inside out (literally). This allows us to quickly fix any hardware issues using spare parts that we keep in stock rather than waiting on warranty replacements from 3rd party manufactures.


The Web Wiz Dynamic Cloud Data Centre

To further reduce power Web Wiz have built a Dynamic Cloud Data Centre with Highly Available Servers that are continuously duplicated to redundant hardware. This has environmental advantages as well as improving the availability of services and reduce outages.

From an environmental perspective our Dynamic Cloud Data Centre allows us to reduce the amount of physical servers we require while utilising the hardware more fully. This has allowed us to reduce the amount of servers we use by over 75% compared to a regular Data Centre, thus reducing the amount of power consumed.

The management, uptime and backup of servers is also improved. Servers are able to failover (switch) to redundant servers within our Cloud in the event of hardware failure or maintenance. Servers can pull more resources from our Dynamic Cloud Data Centre if they require extra CPU or memory resources without any downtime to services.
