UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems which are kept by website hosting companies inside their data centers in the event there are interruptions in the primary power source or the current is shaky and unable to maintain the correct operation of the servers situated within the facility. UPS stands for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is a highly effective battery which works non-stop. It is connected to both the electric power network and the web servers at all times, so if the power stops, the UPS is already operational, which helps prevent the servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is certainly an engine that can provide the necessary electrical power to keep the machines functioning for a longer period of time. In case there is an outage, the UPS gives the needed time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the primary power source is restored.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Cloud Hosting

The 99.9% network and web server uptime guarantee which we provide is, in part, a result of the electric power backup setup that we have in each of the 3 data centers in which we provide cloud hosting packages - in Chicago (USA), in Coventry (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you obtain a new account to create or move your sites, it will be created on a cutting-edge cloud platform which consists of several clusters handling your content. Each and every web server in the given cluster has its own potent enterprise-class UPS to keep it operational no matter what, until a number of electrical power generators boot up and give the required power for the entire facility to stay functional for a lot of hours. You'll not notice anything even when there's a disruption, as our backup units will be able to power all the devices and we shall not have to limit the total number of working hosting servers or the network equipment that addresses the traffic to your Internet sites.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers

The semi-dedicated server accounts that we offer are created in a state-of-the-art data center in downtown Chicago and its electrical power backup system is among the reasons why we are able to afford to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the web servers which are part of our advanced web hosting platform and the network that addresses all of the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS system is attached to each and every server to keep it online until numerous generators kick in. The latter are potent enough to provide electricity for the whole data center for many hours without having to restrict the power consumption or the overall performance of any hosting server or network device, so even in case there is a blackout, all of the Internet sites hosted on our platform shall still be available without any interruptions and will function at top speed.
