UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems that are kept by hosting providers inside their data centers in the event that there are interruptions in the primary power source or the current is shaky and unable to maintain the appropriate running of the servers based within the facility. UPS is short for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is an efficient battery that works non-stop. It's connected to both the electrical power network and the web servers constantly, so if 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 which can provide you with the necessary energy to keep the machines working for a longer period of time. In case there is an outage, the UPS gives the required time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the primary source is restored.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Hosting
If you host your sites in a hosting account with our company, you'll be able to forget about complications caused by electrical power failures, since, in contrast to many other providers, we don't keep many different servers attached to just one UPS. Instead, each individual hosting server that is part of our avant-garde cloud platform features its own UPS device which will keep it working for hours. Moreover, our data centers in the U.S., in the UK and in Australia have multiple generators which boot up for minutes and which are able to power all of the servers for an extensive length of time. In this way, the performance of your websites or their loading speed won't be affected, so you can enjoy an uninterrupted high-quality service all the time.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The semi-dedicated server accounts we offer you are created inside a state-of-the-art data center in downtown Chicago and its electrical power backup system is amongst the reasons why we are able to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the hosting servers which are part of our highly developed hosting platform and the network which addresses all of the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS unit is connected to each hosting server to keep it online until numerous generators kick in. The latter are powerful enough to supply electric power for the whole center for many hours without the need to minimize the power consumption or the functionality of any server or network device, so even in the event that there is a blackout, all the sites hosted on our platform will still be accessible without disturbances and will function at top speed.
