UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
Learn more details on UPSs & diesel backup generators and learn why every hosting data center features them.
The UPS and the diesel generator are two means for keeping a web server functioning if there are troubles with the primary power source - an outage or shaky current which cannot keep the web server working correctly, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, though it is frequently called Uninterruptible Power Source too. The UPS is, essentially, a highly effective battery that's attached to the hosting server and to the electric power network all the time, so if there is any blackout, it is already functioning, which allows the hosting server to continue working without losing any info. The diesel generator is an engine which will power up the entire data center. It needs some time to start working and it is the UPS that gives it that time. Those two power solutions are fundamental 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 Cloud Hosting
The 99.9% network and hosting server uptime guarantee which we provide is, to some extent, a result of the power backup setup we have in each of the 3 data centers in which we offer cloud hosting
plans - in Chicago (USA), in London (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you purchase a new account to create or move your sites, it'll be set up on a modern cloud platform which consists of many clusters dealing with your content. Each and every hosting server inside the selected cluster provides its own effective enterprise-class UPS to keep it up and running no matter what, until a number of electric power generators boot up and give the required power for the entire center to remain working for many hours. You won't notice anything even in the event there is an interruption, as our backup units will be able to power all of the devices and we won't have to restrict the amount of working hosting servers or the network equipment that addresses the traffic to your websites.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you purchase a semi-dedicated server
account from our company, it will be set up on a cutting-edge hosting platform within a data center with a fantastic infrastructure. The Chicago-based data center uses a different UPS for each hosting server or network switch located there to ensure that the proper operation of any device will not be disrupted until highly effective generators start producing the necessary electrical power. The latter will power the entire center for quite a long time without the need to turn off any equipment, so each of the websites hosted on our web servers shall continue to operate at max speed and with zero effect on their functionality. These electric power backup options enable us to ensure that a possible outage will never be a reason for your sites to go offline or to have reduced functionality.
