UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems which are kept by web hosting providers within their data centers in the event there are interruptions in the primary power source or the current is unstable and unable to sustain the proper functioning of the machines situated in the facility. UPS stands for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's an efficient battery which works non-stop. It's connected to both the electrical power network and the servers consistently, so when the power stops, the UPS is already working, which prevents the servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is literally an engine that can give you the necessary electrical power to keep the web servers working for a longer period of time. In case of an outage, the UPS gives the necessary time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the main power source is restored.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Cloud Hosting
The 99.9% network and hosting server uptime guarantee which we offer you is, partly, a result of the electric power backup setup we have in every of the 3 data centers in which we provide cloud hosting plans - in Chicago (USA), in Coventry (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you get a new account to develop or move your sites, it shall be set up on a progressive cloud platform that consists of a number of clusters taking care of your content. Each machine inside the specific cluster provides its own highly effective enterprise-class UPS to keep it functioning no matter what, until a number of electrical power generators boot up and provide the necessary power for the whole data center to stay operating for many hours. You will not notice anything even when there is an interruption, because our backup units could power each of the devices and we shall not have to restrict the number of working servers or the network equipment that handles the traffic to your sites.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you order a semi-dedicated server account from us, it shall be set up on a cutting-edge hosting platform inside a data center with an excellent infrastructure. The Chicago-based data center uses a separate UPS for each web server or network switch located there to make sure that the correct functioning of any piece of equipment shall not be disrupted until powerful generators start supplying the needed electric power. The latter are able to power the entire data center for quite a while with no need to shut down any equipment, so all the websites hosted on our web servers shall continue to function at top speed and without any effect on their performance. These power backup options allow us to guarantee that a potential outage will never be a reason for your sites to go offline or to have lowered functionality.
