UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems which are kept by website hosting companies in their data centers in case there are interruptions in the primary power source or the current is unsound and unable to maintain the appropriate operation of the servers based in the facility. UPS refers to Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's a highly effective battery that works non-stop. It's connected to both the power network and the servers all of the time, so if the power stops, the UPS is already working, which prevents the web servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is literally an engine that can provide the necessary electrical power to keep the machines up and running for a longer period of time. In the event of an outage, the UPS provides the necessary time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the primary power source is restored.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Hosting

The 99.9% network and hosting server uptime guarantee which we provide is, in part, a result of the electrical power backup setup which we have in each of the three data centers in which we provide hosting plans - in Chicago (USA), in London (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you purchase a new account to develop or move your sites, it'll be created on a progressive cloud platform which consists of a number of clusters taking care of your content. Every single machine within the selected cluster features its own potent enterprise-class UPS to keep it functioning no matter what, until a lot of electric power generators boot up and provide the required power for the entire facility to be operational for many hours. You'll not notice anything even in the event there's an interruption, because our backup units will power each of the devices and we will not have to reduce the total number of working web servers or the network equipment which deals with the traffic to your websites.

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

If you order a semi-dedicated server account from our company, it shall be created on a cutting-edge hosting platform within a data center with a fantastic infrastructure. The Chicago-based center uses an individual UPS for each server or network switch located there to ensure that the correct functioning of any piece of equipment won't be disrupted until highly effective generators start producing the needed electricity. The latter will power the entire facility for a very long time without having to shut down any devices, so all of the websites hosted on our web servers shall continue to operate at maximum speed and without any effect on their efficiency. These electric power backup options permit us to ensure that a potential outage will never be a reason for your Internet sites to go offline or to have lowered functionality.
