The UPS and the diesel generator are two means for keeping a server functioning in case there are problems with the main power supply - an outage or shaky current that can't keep the server functioning properly, for instance. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, though it can often be called Uninterruptible Power Source too. The UPS is, in essence, a powerful battery that is connected to the web server and to the power network constantly, so in case of any blackout, it's already functioning, which allows the server to continue operating without losing any data. The diesel generator is an engine which can power up the entire data center. It does take some time to begin working and it's the UPS which provides this time. These 2 power solutions are a requirement for any facility or hosting company that wants to avoid data loss and hardware damage resulting from an unexpected electric power issue.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Website Hosting
The 99.9% network and hosting server uptime guarantee that we offer is, to some extent, a result of the power backup setup we have in each of the 3 data centers where we offer website hosting packages - in Chicago (USA), in London (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you purchase a new account to develop or move your websites, it'll be created on an innovative cloud platform that consists of several clusters handling your content. Every hosting server inside the particular cluster offers its own efficient enterprise-class UPS to keep it up and running no matter what, until several electric power generators boot up and supply the necessary power for the whole data center to be working for many hours. You'll not notice anything even in case there's a disruption, as our backup units can power each of the devices and we will not need to restrict the number of working hosting servers or the network equipment that manages the traffic to your sites.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you order 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 center uses an independent UPS for every server or network switch located there to make sure that the proper functioning of any unit will not be disturbed until highly effective generators start providing the needed electrical power. The latter will power the whole facility for quite a long time without having to shut down any equipment, so each of the websites hosted on our hosting servers will continue to operate at maximum speed and without any effect on their efficiency. These electrical power backup options permit us to ensure that a possible outage will never be a reason for your sites to go offline or to have limited functionality.
