UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems which are kept by website hosting service providers within their data centers in case there are interruptions in the main power source or the current is unstable and unable to sustain the proper running of the web servers located in the facility. UPS is short for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is a powerful battery that works non-stop. It's connected to both the electric power network and the web servers consistently, so when the power stops, the UPS is already operational, which prevents the servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is literally an engine which can deliver the needed electrical power to keep the machines operational for a longer period of time. In case of an outage, the UPS gives the required time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the primary source is restored.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Shared Website Hosting
The 99.9% network and server uptime guarantee that we provide you with is, somewhat, a result of the power backup setup which we have in each of the three data centers in which we offer shared website hosting plans - in Chicago (USA), in Coventry (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you obtain a new account to develop or move your Internet sites, it shall be set up on a cutting-edge cloud platform which consists of many clusters handling your content. Every web server within the particular cluster offers its own potent enterprise-class UPS to keep it operational no matter what, until quite a few power generators boot up and provide the required power for the whole data center to be working for a lot of hours. You'll not notice anything even if there is a disruption, since our backup units can power each of the devices and we won't need to limit the quantity of working web servers or the network equipment that handles the traffic to your websites.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you get a semi-dedicated server account from us, it will be created on a cutting-edge hosting platform in a data center with a superb infrastructure. The Chicago-based center uses an independent UPS for every hosting server or network switch located there to ensure that the ideal operation of any unit will not be disturbed until efficient generators start supplying the required electrical power. The latter are able to power the whole center for quite a long time with no need to turn off any equipment, so all of the websites hosted on our hosting servers shall continue to work at optimum speed and without any effect on their efficiency. These power backup options permit us to ensure that a possible outage will never be a reason for your Internet sites to go offline or to have lowered functionality.
