UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems that are kept by web hosting companies within their data centers in the event that there are interruptions in the main power supply or the current is unstable and unable to sustain the appropriate functioning of the servers situated inside the facility. UPS refers to Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's an efficient battery that works non-stop. It's connected to both the electrical power network and the web servers constantly, so if the power stops, the UPS is already up and running, which helps prevent the machines from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is an engine which can provide you with the needed electric power to keep the machines working for a longer period of time. In case there is an outage, the UPS gives the required 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 Hosting

The 99.9% network and hosting server uptime guarantee that we offer is, partly, a result of the electrical power backup setup that we have in every of the 3 data centers in which we provide hosting plans - in Chicago (USA), in London (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you get a new account to create or move your Internet sites, it'll be set up on an innovative cloud platform that consists of many clusters dealing with your content. Each and every web server within the given cluster provides its own powerful enterprise-class UPS to keep it working no matter what, until quite a few electric power generators boot up and supply the necessary power for the whole data center to stay working for a lot of hours. You'll not notice anything even in case there is an outage, since our backup units can easily power each of the devices and we won't have to reduce the number of working servers or the network equipment that manages the traffic to your sites.

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

The semi-dedicated server accounts which we offer are created inside a state-of-the-art data center in the town center of Chicago and its electric power backup system is among the reasons why we are able to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the machines that are part of our highly developed hosting platform and the network that handles all the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS system is attached to each and every server to keep it online until a variety of generators kick in. The latter are effective enough to deliver electricity for the entire facility for many hours without the need to minimize the power consumption or the efficiency of any hosting server or network device, so even in the event that there is a blackout, all the sites hosted on our platform will still be accessible without disturbances and will function at top speed.
