UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems that are kept by hosting service providers within their data centers in the event that there are interruptions in the main power source or the current is shaky and unable to maintain the appropriate running of the web servers situated inside the facility. UPS is short for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is a powerful battery that works non-stop. It's connected to both the electrical power network and the servers all of the time, so anytime 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 certainly an engine that can give you the needed electric power to keep the servers up and running for a longer period of time. If there is an outage, the UPS gives the needed time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the main source is restored.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Shared Hosting
The 99.9% network and hosting server uptime warranty which we offer you is, partly, a result of the electrical power backup setup which we have in each of the three data centers where we offer shared hosting plans - in Chicago (USA), in Coventry (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you get a new account to develop or move your sites, it'll be set up on a cutting-edge cloud platform that consists of many clusters controlling your content. Every machine within the given cluster offers its own powerful enterprise-class UPS to keep it up and running no matter what, until several electric power generators boot up and provide the required power for the whole data center to remain operational for several hours. You won't notice anything even in case there's an interruption, since our backup units could power each of the devices and we will not need to reduce the total number of working hosting servers or the network equipment that deals with 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 in a state-of-the-art data center in the town center of Chicago and its electrical power backup system is one of the reasons why we can afford to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the servers which are part of our highly developed hosting platform and the network that deals with all the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS unit is attached to every single server to keep it online until a variety of generators kick in. The latter are efficient enough to provide electric power for the whole data center for several hours without the need to limit the power consumption or the efficiency of any server or network device, so even in case there is an outage, all the Internet sites hosted on our platform will still be available with no interruptions and will work at top speed.
