UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems which are kept by website hosting providers within their data centers in the event there are interruptions in the primary power source or the current is unstable and unable to maintain the correct running of the web servers based inside the facility. UPS is short for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's an effective battery that works non-stop. It's connected to both the electric power network and the web servers constantly, so in case the power stops, the UPS is already up and running, which prevents the machines from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is an engine that can provide you with the needed electric power to keep the machines operational for a longer period of time. If there is an outage, the UPS provides the necessary time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the main power supply is restored.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Cloud Hosting
The 99.9% network and hosting server uptime guarantee which we offer is, to some extent, a result of the electrical power backup setup we have in every of the 3 data centers in which we offer cloud hosting packages - in Chicago (USA), in London (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you get a new account to build or move your sites, it shall be created on an innovative cloud platform that consists of a number of clusters handling your content. Each server inside the selected cluster features its own efficient enterprise-class UPS to keep it operational no matter what, until several electrical power generators boot up and provide the required power for the entire center to be operating for a lot of hours. You will not notice anything even in case there is an interruption, as our backup units could power each of the devices and we will not have to limit the quantity of working servers or the network equipment which deals with the traffic to your websites.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you get a semi-dedicated server account from our company, it shall be set up on a cutting-edge hosting platform in a data center with a superb infrastructure. The Chicago-based data center uses a separate UPS for each and every hosting server or network switch located there to ensure that the ideal functioning of any piece of equipment will not be interrupted until powerful generators start producing the required electrical power. The latter can power the whole data center for a very long time with no need to turn off any machines, so each of the Internet sites hosted on our hosting servers shall continue to operate at maximum speed and with zero effect on their capabilities. These electrical power backup options permit us to guarantee that a possible outage will never be a reason for your websites to go offline or to have minimized functionality.
