UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems which are kept by web hosting service providers in their data centers in the event there are interruptions in the main power supply or the current is unsound and unable to maintain the proper operation of the machines based in the facility. UPS refers to Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is a powerful battery which works non-stop. It is connected to both the power network and the servers constantly, so when 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 literally an engine that can provide you with the necessary energy to keep the web servers working for a longer period of time. If there is an outage, the UPS gives 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 Shared Website Hosting

The 99.9% network and server uptime warranty which we offer is, somewhat, a result of the electric power backup setup which we have in every of the three data centers where we provide shared website hosting plans - in Chicago (USA), in Coventry (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you purchase a new account to build or move your Internet sites, it'll be created on a modern cloud platform that consists of several clusters dealing with your content. Every web server in the particular cluster offers its own highly effective enterprise-class UPS to keep it working no matter what, until several electrical power generators boot up and give the necessary power for the whole center to stay operational for a lot of hours. You won't notice anything even in the event there is an interruption, as our backup units could power all of the devices and we will not need to reduce the number of working servers or the network equipment which handles the traffic to your sites.

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

The semi-dedicated server accounts we provide are created inside a state-of-the-art data center in downtown Chicago and its power backup system is one of the reasons why we can afford to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the hosting servers which are part of our advanced hosting platform and the network which addresses all the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS device is connected to each machine to keep it online until a variety of generators kick in. The latter are powerful enough to supply electricity for the whole center for several hours with no need to limit the power consumption or the productivity of any hosting server or network device, so even in case there is an interruption, all of the websites hosted on our platform will still be accessible with no interruptions and will operate at top speed.
