UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems which are kept by hosting companies within their data centers in case there are interruptions in the main power supply or the current is shaky and unable to maintain the appropriate running of the servers situated within the facility. UPS refers to Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is an effective battery that works non-stop. It is connected to both the power network and the servers constantly, so if the power stops, the UPS is already operational, which helps prevent the web servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is an engine which can give you the required energy to keep the web servers up and running for a longer period of time. In the case of an outage, the UPS provides the needed time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the main source is restored.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Cloud Website Hosting

The 99.9% network and server uptime warranty that we provide is, to some extent, a result of the electrical power backup setup we have in every of the three data centers where we provide cloud website hosting packages - in Chicago (USA), in London (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you get a new account to build or move your Internet sites, it'll be set up on an innovative cloud platform that consists of several clusters handling your content. Each hosting server within the particular cluster features its own potent enterprise-class UPS to keep it working no matter what, until a lot of electric power generators boot up and give the necessary power for the entire center to remain functional for several hours. You will not notice anything even if there's an outage, due to the fact that our backup units could power each of the devices and we will not have to limit the total number of working servers or the network equipment that handles the traffic to your sites.

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

The semi-dedicated server accounts we offer 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 can afford to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the hosting servers which are part of our highly developed hosting platform and the network that manages all the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS unit is connected to every single hosting server to keep it online until several generators kick in. The latter are potent enough to supply electricity for the whole data center for many hours without the need to minimize the power consumption or the efficiency of any web server or network device, so even when there is an outage, all of the Internet sites hosted on our platform shall still be available without any disturbances and will operate at top speed.
