The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 devices for keeping a server functional in case there are problems with the primary source - an interruption or unreliable current that can't keep the server working properly, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, even though it can often be referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source also. The UPS is, in simple terms, an efficient battery that's connected to the web server and to the electric power network consistently, so in case of any blackout, it's already working, which enables the server to continue working without losing any info. The diesel generator is an engine that will power up a whole data center. It does take some time to start working and it's the UPS that gives it this time. Those 2 power solutions are absolutely essential for any facility or service provider that wants to prevent info loss and hardware damage caused by an unexpected electrical power problem.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Shared Website Hosting

The 99.9% network and hosting server uptime guarantee that we provide is, somewhat, a result of the electric power backup setup that we have in every 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 purchase a new account to build or move your sites, it'll be set up on a progressive cloud platform that consists of several clusters taking care of your content. Every machine inside the specific cluster features its own effective enterprise-class UPS to keep it functioning no matter what, until a lot of electric power generators boot up and give the necessary power for the whole facility to stay operational for a lot of hours. You will not notice anything even in case there is an interruption, since our backup units can easily power all of the devices and we won't have to restrict the quantity of working servers or the network equipment which manages the traffic to your Internet sites.

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

If you buy a semi-dedicated server account from us, it'll be set up on a cutting-edge hosting platform inside a data center with an excellent infrastructure. The Chicago-based data center uses an independent UPS for each server or network switch located there to ensure that the correct operation of any device shall not be disrupted until effective generators start providing the required electrical power. The latter can easily power the whole data center for quite a long time without the need to turn off any devices, so all the sites hosted on our web servers will continue to function at max speed and with no effect on their functionality. These electric power backup options permit us to ensure that a potential outage will never be a reason for your websites to go offline or to have reduced functionality.
