The UPS and the diesel generator are two devices for keeping a web server operational if there are difficulties with the main power supply - an outage or unstable current which cannot keep the web server working properly, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, though it is sometimes referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source also. The UPS is, in essence, an efficient battery that's attached to the machine and to the power network constantly, so in case of any disruption, it's already operating, which allows the server to keep on operating without losing any info. The diesel generator is an engine which will power up the entire data center. It does take some time to begin working and it is the UPS that gives it that time. These 2 power solutions are an absolute necessity for any facility or service provider that wants to avoid info loss and hardware damage caused by an unexpected power problem.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Cloud Hosting

The 99.9% network and server uptime warranty that we provide is, to some extent, a result of the electrical power backup setup we have in every of the three data centers where we provide cloud hosting packages - in Chicago (USA), in London (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you obtain a new account to develop or move your Internet sites, it'll be set up on a progressive cloud platform which consists of many clusters dealing with your content. Each hosting server within the particular cluster features its own effective enterprise-class UPS to keep it working no matter what, until a number of power generators boot up and supply the required power for the whole data center to remain operational for several hours. You'll not notice anything even if there is an interruption, due to the fact that our backup units can power each of the devices and we won't need to limit the total number of working web servers or the network equipment that addresses the traffic to your Internet sites.

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

The semi-dedicated server accounts that we offer you are created in 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 web servers which are part of our innovative web hosting platform and the network which deals with all the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS unit is connected to every server to keep it online until a variety of generators kick in. The latter are efficient enough to supply electrical power for the entire center for several hours without having to reduce the power consumption or the functionality of any server or network device, so even if there is a disruption, all of the websites hosted on our platform will still be accessible with no disturbances and will function at top speed.
