The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 means for keeping a server operational in case there are issues with the primary power supply - an outage or unreliable current that can't keep the machine working properly, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, even though it is sometimes referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source as well. The UPS is, essentially, a powerful battery which is attached to the web server and to the electricity network constantly, so in case there is any blackout, it is already operating, which allows the web server to keep on operating without losing any info. The diesel generator is an engine that will power up an entire data center. It needs some time to start working and it's the UPS which gives it this time. These two power solutions are a requirement for any facility or provider that wants to avoid info loss and hardware damage as a consequence of an unexpected electrical power issue.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Shared Website Hosting

The 99.9% network and hosting server uptime guarantee which we provide you with is, to some extent, a result of the electric power backup setup which we have in each of the three data centers in which we offer shared website hosting packages - in Chicago (USA), in London (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you get a new account to create or move your Internet sites, it shall be set up on an innovative cloud platform that consists of several clusters dealing with your content. Every machine in the given cluster features its own efficient enterprise-class UPS to keep it operational no matter what, until quite a few electric power generators boot up and give the required power for the entire center to remain operational for a lot of hours. You will not notice anything even in the event there is a disruption, since our backup units will power all of the devices and we won't need to limit the total number of working web servers or the network equipment that addresses the traffic to your websites.

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

The semi-dedicated server accounts that we offer are created inside a state-of-the-art data center in the downtown area of Chicago and its 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 advanced hosting platform and the network that addresses all the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS unit is attached to each and every web server to keep it online until a variety of generators kick in. The latter are potent enough to provide electricity for the whole facility for a long time with no 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 websites hosted on our platform will still be accessible without any disruptions and will perform at top speed.
