Holiday to do list or what we are working on now

The holiday season is characterised by lower user activity on the Internet. We can see this in our company by the fact that the pressure on customer and technical support is decreasing. Our statistics show that people just enjoy relaxing and don’t sit in front of computers as much. We always take advantage of this period to move forward with a lot of projects, improve the infrastructure and finish some of the rest. Plus, this year the Czechs decided to start enjoying themselves earlier and so June was a little bit of July for us 🙂

Christmas at WEDOS and how this year has been a mess

This year everything got pretty messed up for us, as it did for most of us. We had to improvise a lot, adapt to the current situation and overcome many problems. Fortunately, we are no longer a small company, but a successful large hosting company with plenty of financial and material reserves and a great team of people who have gained a lot of experience over the past 10 years and this year it was evident.

Project HUPS – Introduction and history of WEDOS oil cooling

We have done a number of experiments with oil cooling servers. Some took literally a few minutes and  other times the whole project took several years to collect enough data for long-term operation. As a result of a series of experiments, our second datacenter will house all of the planned 10,800 physical servers cooled in oil baths using a giant cooling circuit. It includes a project to prove (proof of concept) that waste heat from oil cooling can be used to heat remote buildings. Of course, we don’t stop there, we still have the HUPS project 😉

How the construction of our second datacenter is going

We are not afraid to write that our second datacentre will be one of the Czech technological uniquenesses of which we can all be proud. All servers in it will be cooled in an oil bath. This cooling technology is incomparably more economical than air cooling. In addition, it will allow us to move the excess heat to the nearby municipal swimming pool, where we will use it to heat the pool. This way, the bulk of the waste heat is recovered instead of being vented outside.
