The UPS and the diesel generator are two devices for keeping a web server working in case there are issues with the main source - an interruption or shaky current that cannot keep the web server functional, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, though it is frequently called Uninterruptible Power Source too. The UPS is, basically, an effective battery that is connected to the hosting server and to the electricity network all the time, so in case there is any disturbance, it's already operating, that permits the web server to carry on running without losing any data. The diesel generator is an engine that will power up a whole data center. It does take some time to begin working and it's the UPS which provides this time. Those two power solutions are an absolute necessity for any facility or hosting company that wants to avoid data loss and hardware damage caused by an unexpected electric power problem.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Cloud Hosting

The 99.9% network and server uptime warranty that we provide is, partly, a result of the power backup setup we have in every of the 3 data centers where we provide cloud hosting plans - in Chicago (USA), in Coventry (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you purchase a new account to build or move your sites, it'll be set up on an innovative cloud platform which consists of several clusters dealing with your content. Every single web server within the given cluster has its own efficient enterprise-class UPS to keep it up and running no matter what, until a number of electric power generators boot up and provide the necessary power for the whole facility to be operating for a lot of hours. You won't notice anything even when there's a disruption, because our backup units can power all of the devices and we will not have to reduce the total number of working web servers or the network equipment that deals with the traffic to your sites.

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

The semi-dedicated server accounts which we provide are created inside a state-of-the-art data center in downtown Chicago and its electrical power backup system is one of the reasons why we are able to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the hosting servers which are part of our sophisticated website hosting platform and the network which 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 numerous generators kick in. The latter are potent enough to supply electric power for the whole data center for many hours without the need to restrict the power consumption or the productivity of any hosting server or network device, so even if there is an outage, all of the sites hosted on our platform will still be accessible without interruptions and will function at top speed.
