The UPS and the diesel generator are two means for keeping a web server operational if there are problems with the main source - an interruption or unstable current that cannot keep the machine working correctly, for instance. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, though it is oftentimes called Uninterruptible Power Source as well. The UPS is, basically, an efficient battery which is attached to the web server and to the electricity network constantly, so in case there is any disturbance, it is already operating, that permits the server to continue doing the job without losing any data. The diesel generator is an engine which will power up the entire data center. It does take some time to begin working and it's the UPS which provides that time. Those 2 power solutions are fundamental for any facility or hosting company that wants to prevent information loss and hardware damage caused by an unexpected electric power issue.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Shared Website Hosting

The 99.9% network and server uptime warranty which we provide is, partly, a result of the electric power backup setup which we have in each of the 3 data centers where we offer shared website hosting packages - in Chicago (USA), in London (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you acquire a new account to develop or move your Internet sites, it shall be created on a progressive cloud platform which consists of several clusters dealing with your content. Every single machine inside the specific cluster has its own highly effective enterprise-class UPS to keep it working no matter what, until a lot of electrical power generators boot up and give the required power for the whole data center to remain operating for several hours. You'll not notice anything even in case there is a disruption, since our backup units can power each of the devices and we will not have to restrict the total number of working web servers or the network equipment which manages the traffic to your sites.

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

The semi-dedicated server accounts which we provide are created within a state-of-the-art data center in the downtown area of Chicago and its electrical power backup system is one of the reasons why we are able to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the hosting servers that are part of our highly developed hosting platform and the network which handles all of the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS unit is connected to every server to keep it online until several generators kick in. The latter are potent enough to deliver electric power for the entire center for many hours without having to restrict the power consumption or the functionality of any hosting server or network device, so even in case there is an outage, all of the sites hosted on our platform shall still be accessible without any disturbances and will operate at top speed.
