The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 devices for keeping a web server operational in case there are problems with the main power source - an outage or unstable current that can't keep the server working correctly, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, although it is frequently referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source as well. The UPS is, in simple terms, a highly effective battery that's attached to the server and to the electric power network all the time, so if there is any blackout, it is already working, that permits the hosting server to continue operating without losing any information. The diesel generator is an engine that can power up the whole data center. It does take some time to begin working and it's the UPS which gives it that time. These 2 power solutions are an absolute necessity for any facility or hosting company that wants to stop info loss and hardware damage caused by an unexpected electrical power problem.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Cloud Hosting

The 99.9% network and web server uptime guarantee which we offer is, to some extent, a result of the electrical power backup setup which we have in each of the three data centers in which we offer cloud hosting packages - in Chicago (USA), in Coventry (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you acquire a new account to build or move your sites, it shall be created on an innovative cloud platform that consists of a number of clusters dealing with your content. Every single web server within the specific cluster provides its own powerful enterprise-class UPS to keep it operational no matter what, until several power generators boot up and supply the required power for the whole data center to remain functional for a lot of hours. You will not notice anything even in case there's an interruption, due to the fact that our backup units can power each of the devices and we will not have to limit the number of working web servers or the network equipment which manages the traffic to your Internet sites.

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

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 outstanding infrastructure. The Chicago-based center uses an independent UPS for each and every hosting server or network switch located there to ensure that the proper operation of any piece of equipment won't be disrupted until effective generators start providing the required electrical power. The latter are able to power the entire center for a very long time without having to shut down any devices, so all of the sites hosted on our machines will continue to work at max speed and without any effect on their overall performance. These power backup options allow us to guarantee that any outage will never be a reason for your sites to go offline or to have minimized functionality.
