The UPS and the diesel generator are two devices for keeping a web server functioning in case there are issues with the primary power source - an outage or unreliable current which cannot keep the machine working properly, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, although it can often be referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source too. The UPS is, basically, a powerful battery that is attached to the machine and to the electricity network constantly, so if there is any blackout, it's already working, which allows the hosting server to carry on working without losing any info. The diesel generator is an engine that will power up an entire data center. It does take some time to start working and it is the UPS which provides that time. Those 2 power solutions are a necessity for any facility or provider that wants to avoid information loss and hardware damage as a result of an unexpected power problem.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Cloud Hosting

The 99.9% network and hosting server uptime guarantee which we offer is, somewhat, a result of the electric power backup setup we have in each of the three data centers in which we offer cloud hosting packages - in Chicago (USA), in Coventry (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you obtain a new account to develop or move your sites, it'll be created on a progressive cloud platform which consists of a number of clusters taking care of your content. Each and every web server inside the particular cluster has its own effective enterprise-class UPS to keep it operational no matter what, until quite a few power generators boot up and give the necessary power for the whole center to stay operating for several hours. You will not notice anything even when there is an interruption, due to the fact that our backup units can power all the devices and we won't need to restrict the number of working web servers or the network equipment which deals with the traffic to your websites.

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

If you buy a semi-dedicated server account from our company, it shall be set up on a cutting-edge hosting platform within a data center with a superb infrastructure. The Chicago-based data center uses a different UPS for every single hosting server or network switch located there to make certain that the proper operation of any device shall not be interrupted until highly effective generators start providing the required electric power. The latter will power the whole data center for quite a long time without the need to shut down any equipment, so all of the sites hosted on our servers will continue to function at max speed and without any effect on their overall performance. These power backup options enable us to guarantee that a possible outage will never be a reason for your Internet sites to go offline or to have minimized functionality.
