The UPS and the diesel generator are two instruments for keeping a web server functional if there are issues with the main power supply - an outage or shaky current that can't keep the web server working correctly, for instance. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, even though it is sometimes referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source also. The UPS is, essentially, a powerful battery that's attached to the web server and to the power network at all times, so if there is any blackout, it's already working, which enables the server to keep on running without losing any information. The diesel generator is an engine which will power up a whole data center. It needs some time to start working and it is the UPS which provides that time. Those 2 power solutions are a requirement for any facility or provider that wants to stop information loss and hardware damage as a result of an unexpected power issue.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Cloud Hosting

The 99.9% network and hosting server uptime warranty which we offer is, to some extent, a result of the power backup setup we have in every of the 3 data centers in which we provide cloud hosting plans - in Chicago (USA), in London (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you get a new account to build or move your sites, it'll be created on a modern cloud platform which consists of several clusters handling your content. Each and every web server inside the given cluster offers its own powerful enterprise-class UPS to keep it working no matter what, until several electrical power generators boot up and give the necessary power for the entire facility to be operating for several hours. You'll not notice anything even when there is an outage, since our backup units can power each of the devices and we shall not need to reduce the number of working web servers or the network equipment that handles the traffic to your Internet sites.

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

The semi-dedicated server accounts that we offer are created within a state-of-the-art data center in the town center of 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 which are part of our highly developed website hosting platform and the network that handles all the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS device is connected to each and every web server to keep it online until a variety of generators kick in. The latter are powerful enough to deliver electrical power for the entire facility for a long time with no need to minimize the power consumption or the overall performance of any server or network device, so even when there is a disruption, all of the sites hosted on our platform will still be available with no disturbances and will work at top speed.
