UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems which are kept by hosting service providers inside their data centers in the event that there are interruptions in the main power supply or the current is unstable and unable to maintain the proper running of the machines based in the facility. UPS refers to Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's an efficient battery that works non-stop. It is connected to both the power network and the web servers all of the time, so when the power stops, the UPS is already up and running, which prevents the web servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is definitely an engine that can deliver the needed energy 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 supply is restored.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Shared Hosting
The 99.9% network and hosting server uptime guarantee which we provide you with is, partly, a result of the power backup setup which we have in every of the 3 data centers where we offer shared hosting plans - in Chicago (USA), in Coventry (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you purchase a new account to build or move your sites, it will be created on a modern cloud platform which consists of several clusters handling your content. Every hosting server in the given cluster offers its own effective enterprise-class UPS to keep it functioning no matter what, until several power generators boot up and provide the required power for the entire facility to be operational for a lot of hours. You'll not notice anything even if there's a disruption, because our backup units could power all the devices and we won't have to restrict the quantity of working web servers or the network equipment that 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 will be set up on a cutting-edge hosting platform inside a data center with a superb infrastructure. The Chicago-based center uses an individual UPS for each and every server or network switch located there to make sure that the ideal functioning of any unit won't be interrupted until highly effective generators start providing the necessary electricity. The latter are able to power the entire data center for a very long time without the need to turn off any machines, so all the websites hosted on our web servers will continue to function at top speed and without any effect on their efficiency. These electric power backup options permit us to guarantee that any outage will never be a reason for your sites to go offline or to have limited functionality.
