The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 devices for keeping a server working in case there are issues with the main source - an outage or unstable current that can't keep the web server functional, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, though it can often be called Uninterruptible Power Source as well. The UPS is, in essence, a highly effective battery that's attached to the machine and to the electricity network consistently, so in case of any disturbance, it is already functioning, which allows the hosting server to keep on running without losing any data. The diesel generator is an engine which will power up the entire data center. It needs some time to begin working and it's the UPS that gives it this time. Those two power solutions are a requirement for any facility or hosting company that wants to avoid information loss and hardware damage resulting from an unexpected electrical power issue.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Web Hosting

The 99.9% network and server uptime warranty which we provide is, in part, a result of the power backup setup we have in every of the 3 data centers where we provide web hosting plans - in Chicago (USA), in London (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you obtain a new account to create or move your websites, it'll be created on a cutting-edge cloud platform which consists of many clusters taking care of your content. Every single hosting server inside the particular cluster has its own effective enterprise-class UPS to keep it functioning no matter what, until a lot of electrical power generators boot up and supply the required power for the entire data center to stay functional for many hours. You'll not notice anything even in the event there's an outage, because our backup units can easily power all of the devices and we shall not need to limit the amount of working servers or the network equipment which handles the traffic to your websites.

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

The semi-dedicated server accounts which we provide are created in a state-of-the-art data center in downtown Chicago and its electric power backup system is amongst the reasons why we are able to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the web servers that are part of our sophisticated hosting platform and the network that manages all of the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS system is attached to each and every machine to keep it online until several generators kick in. The latter are effective enough to provide electrical power for the entire center for several hours without the need to minimize the power consumption or the functionality of any server or network device, so even when there is an outage, all the Internet sites hosted on our platform will still be accessible without any disturbances and will operate at top speed.
