UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems which are kept by web hosting companies inside their data centers in the event that there are interruptions in the main power source or the current is shaky and unable to support the proper operation of the servers based within the facility. UPS stands for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is a powerful battery that works non-stop. It is connected to both the electric power network and the servers at all times, so in case the power stops, the UPS is already working, which helps prevent the web servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is certainly an engine that can give you the required electric power to keep the machines up and running for a longer period of time. In the event of an outage, the UPS gives the necessary 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 Web Hosting
The 99.9% network and server uptime guarantee that we offer is, to some extent, a result of the power backup setup that we have in every of the three data centers where we provide web hosting
plans - in Chicago (USA), in London (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you get a new account to create or move your sites, it shall be created on a cutting-edge cloud platform which consists of several clusters controlling your content. Each and every server inside the specific cluster features its own efficient enterprise-class UPS to keep it working no matter what, until several electrical power generators boot up and supply the necessary power for the whole center to stay operating for many hours. You won't notice anything even in case there's an interruption, since our backup units will power all of the devices and we won't have to restrict the total number of working hosting servers or the network equipment that manages the traffic to your Internet sites.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers
The semi-dedicated server
accounts which we provide are created within a state-of-the-art data center in the downtown area of Chicago and its electric power backup system is among the reasons why we are able to afford to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the servers that are part of our innovative website hosting platform and the network which handles all of the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS unit is connected to each machine to keep it online until numerous generators kick in. The latter are efficient enough to supply electricity for the whole facility for a long time with no need to minimize the power consumption or the productivity of any web server or network device, so even in the event that there is an interruption, all the sites hosted on our platform shall still be available without disturbances and will work at top speed.
