UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
Learn more info on UPSs & diesel backup generators and discover why each and every hosting data center offers them.
UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems which are kept by web hosting companies inside their data centers in the event that there are interruptions in the primary power supply or the current is unsound and unable to maintain the correct operation of the web servers located in the facility. UPS is short for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is a powerful battery which works non-stop. It's connected to both the electric power network and the servers constantly, so anytime the power stops, the UPS is already operational, which helps prevent the web servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is an engine that can give you the needed power to keep the machines functioning for a longer period of time. If there is an outage, the UPS provides the necessary time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the main power supply is restored.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Website Hosting
The 99.9% network and server uptime warranty that we provide is, in part, a result of the electrical power backup setup which we have in each of the 3 data centers where we provide website hosting
packages - in Chicago (USA), in London (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you obtain a new account to create or move your sites, it shall be set up on a modern cloud platform that consists of many clusters controlling your content. Each and every machine in the selected cluster features its own potent enterprise-class UPS to keep it working no matter what, until a number of electric power generators boot up and give the required power for the whole facility to stay operational for a lot of hours. You will not notice anything even in the event there's an outage, as our backup units could power all of the devices and we won't need to reduce the quantity of working web servers or the network equipment that manages the traffic to your sites.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you purchase a semi-dedicated server
account from us, it'll be set up on a cutting-edge hosting platform within a data center with an incredible infrastructure. The Chicago-based data center uses an independent UPS for every hosting server or network switch located there to ensure that the correct functioning of any unit will not be disturbed until effective generators start supplying the necessary electric power. The latter can power the entire center for quite a while without having to turn off any equipment, so all of the websites hosted on our machines shall continue to function at top speed and with zero effect on their capabilities. These electrical power backup options permit us to guarantee that a possible outage will never be a reason for your websites to go offline or to have limited functionality.
