Datacenter Disaster

Seluxit’s cloud is spread over 5 data centres in different cities in Europe. All data is stored on servers in at least 3 of these locations. In addition, all data is backed up once a day.

This meant that when a major fire engulfed an OVH data centre in France and thousands of websites were lost, it had only a small effect on our customers, even though part of our cloud was also affected.

Our automatic fail-safe routines started by themselves and all services continued to work.
This incident shows very clearly why it pays to use our IoT solution for its data instead of developing its own.

The knowledge needed to develop a reliable system takes many years of experience. To keep up with developments, you must invest continuously in your solution. Seluxit does this continuously to secure its customers.

I am a nerdy person who loves going into depth in diverse areas of knowledge. The less I know about a matter, the more I can learn. I always find it exciting to meet people with a different area of expertise from mine. Solving challenging problems is one of the most exciting things to do and working in a group is always more rewarding than working alone. Working with engaged, driven people, women, men, old, young, different professions, cultures, and religions is a great experience. In my work as co-founder of Seluxit, I have gained in-depth knowledge in the field of the Internet of Things, from wireless communication protocols, over cryptology and security, to cloud services and user interfaces. Doing an IPO with Seluxit in 2018 has been a fascinating journey and taught me a lot about business plans, due diligence, PR/IR, and how to professionalize and grow a listed company. Next to my work, I engage very actively in climate change discussions. My main focus is on finding solutions and the effects that CO2 has on our human body. You can find my articles about this subject on Medium and some videos on YouTube. I enjoy running, playing piano, and socializing to balance my busy work life in my free time.
