At Servebolt, our clients’ satisfaction is our main focus, and we strive to provide the best possible service. To ensure this, we have been carefully assessing our Oslo data center over the last few months, taking into account aspects such as networking, hardware and software quality, and server configuration.
Great web performance starts with low network latency between client and server. Today, we are excited to further extend our long-term partnership with our high-performance and availability network and data center provider, Blix Solutions, and announce the move of our current Oslo data center to a new state-of-the-art facility. The choice of our new Oslo data center location offers arguably the best combination of space, power, connectivity, and sustainability in the Nordics.
On October 29th, 2023, 23:59 – October 30th, 2023, 08:00 CET, we will physically move all servers and network equipment in our current Oslo data center to the new state-of-the-art facility in Oslo. The physical move is scheduled during the night, as this is the least active period for the majority of our Oslo-based customers/websites. Customers will receive additional information via email for details about what to expect during and after the move, as well as notifications as we close in on the time of the assigned migration window.
Bolts and websites hosted in other locations will not be affected during the process.
Our new Oslo Data Center
The new data center is above the best industry standards and will encompass the currently used one with:
- Improved Connectivity & Efficiency
We ended up choosing this exact data center due to its focus on revolutionizing the data center industry through sustainable practices, unrivaled connectivity, and unparalleled energy efficiency. Each rack is seamlessly integrated with abundant fiber, creating a symphony of data transfer possibilities.
- Pioneering Sustainability
Our commitment to sustainability drives every aspect of our operations. Our data center exclusively houses the most advanced, energy-efficient equipment, ensuring optimal performance while significantly reducing power consumption. The facility has many innovative solutions, such as solar cell-powered network equipment and recycling of waste heat from the data center, which also provides heating to the other tenants in the building. By harnessing waste heat, the new Oslo data center closes the loop on energy consumption, minimizing our carbon footprint and contributing to a circular economy. On top, all non-network components are powered by hydroelectric power.
The move to the new facility is one of our most exciting tech projects this quarter and has been carefully planned in detail over the past month, as it will mark the beginning of the migration path of the new Servebolt NextGen platform that will follow in the upcoming months. Stay tuned!
