PeaSoup Hosting, a disruptive cloud company focussing on delivering innovative and eco-friendly cloud solutions, has been shortlisted as a finalist of the SDC Awards 2019 in the “Hyper-convergence Innovation of the Year” category. We are delighted to receive this prestigious award nomination after years of hard work that has gone into our the new eco-cloud data centre.
The winner will be announced in a glamorous awards ceremony at London’s Millennium Gloucester Hotel on 27 November 2019.
Hyper-convergence Innovation of the Year

Following 50% company growth in 2018, PeaSoup has invested greatly in our infrastructure. Our datacentres have seen a complete IT overhaul based on market-leading Fujitsu hardware. This enabled the already performant servers to provide a super modern HCI environment.
What differentiates PeaSoup from other hyper-converged cloud providers?
In addition to the existing datacentres, to enhance the PeaSoup cloud offering the new cloud services are designed and deployed from/using liquid (immersed) cooling. This method of deployment provides an extra cloud resilience as the liquid cooling improves thermal (heat) exchange removing fluctuations or hot spots and allowing the hardware to operate in a more efficient state. Immersive technology condenses IT hardware, removes the risk of hardware failure from dust contamination minimalising at the same time the risk of overheating and electromagnetic interferences. Liquid cooling offers additional environmental benefits, require much less power to run but also creates a transferable heat source that can be used to heat and power a datacentre and surrounding buildings.
Apart from the environmental benefits, there are many advantages to our cloud infrastructure. Our hyper-converged SSD infrastructure supports applications and complex workloads demanding better performance and availability. The submerged IT infrastructure helps to achieve this and high delivery of service-level agreements (SLAs) in comparison to standard cloud deployments.
As the complexity of workloads constantly increases and mission-critical applications are being added the ability of the cloud infrastructure to adapt to workload needs and self-healing infrastructure will become more essential. More and more businesses will choose HCI driven datacentres to support applications where artificial intelligence and autonomous decisions are part of the product offerings.
A cloud infrastructure powered by liquid cooling technology offers the performance and resilience necessary to support a high volume of raw and real-time data, integration, analysis and algorithm-driven resolutions.
