UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems which are kept by website hosting service providers in their data centers in case there are interruptions in the main power supply or the current is unstable and unable to maintain the correct functioning of the machines located within the facility. UPS refers to Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's a powerful battery that works non-stop. It's connected to both the power network and the servers consistently, so in case the power stops, the UPS is already working, which helps prevent the servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is certainly an engine that can provide the needed electric power to keep the servers 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 main power source is restored.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Cloud Hosting

The 99.9% network and web server uptime guarantee that we provide is, in part, a result of the electric power backup setup we have in each of the three data centers where we provide cloud hosting packages - in Chicago (USA), in Coventry (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you get a new account to build or move your sites, it will be created on a modern cloud platform that consists of numerous clusters handling your content. Each and every web server in the particular cluster has its own efficient enterprise-class UPS to keep it operational no matter what, until several electric power generators boot up and provide the required power for the whole data center to remain functional for a lot of hours. You'll not notice anything even in case there is a disruption, as our backup units can easily power all of the devices and we won't need to restrict the amount of working web servers or the network equipment which addresses the traffic to your sites.

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

If you buy a semi-dedicated server account from us, it shall be set up on a cutting-edge hosting platform within a data center with a superb infrastructure. The Chicago-based facility uses a different UPS for each and every server or network switch located there to make sure that the proper functioning of any device won't be disturbed until effective generators start producing the required electric power. The latter can easily power the entire facility for a very long time without having to shut down any equipment, so all the Internet sites hosted on our web servers shall continue to function at optimum speed and with zero effect on their efficiency. These electrical power backup options enable us to ensure that any outage will never be a reason for your sites to go offline or to have minimized functionality.
