UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems which are kept by hosting service providers inside their data centers in case there are interruptions in the main power supply or the current is shaky and unable to sustain the correct running of the servers situated within the facility. UPS refers to Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is an effective battery which works non-stop. It's connected to both the electric power network and the web servers consistently, so anytime the power stops, the UPS is already functioning, which helps prevent the servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is certainly an engine that can provide the needed electric power to keep the web servers working for a longer period of time. If there is an outage, the UPS gives the required 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 server uptime guarantee which we provide you with is, somewhat, a result of the power backup setup which we have in every of the three data centers where we provide shared hosting plans - in Chicago (USA), in Coventry (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you purchase a new account to create or move your Internet sites, it will be created on a modern cloud platform that consists of many clusters handling your content. Each and every machine in the particular cluster has its own efficient enterprise-class UPS to keep it operational no matter what, until a lot of electric power generators boot up and supply the necessary power for the entire data center to be working for many hours. You won't notice anything even when there's a disruption, due to the fact that our backup units can easily power each of the devices and we won't have to reduce the number of working servers or the network equipment that manages the traffic to your sites.

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

The semi-dedicated server accounts we offer are created inside a state-of-the-art data center in the town center of Chicago and its electrical power backup system is among the reasons why we are able to afford to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the hosting servers that are part of our sophisticated website hosting platform and the network which handles all of the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS system is attached to each and every server to keep it online until a number of generators kick in. The latter are powerful enough to offer electrical power for the whole facility for many hours without the need to limit the power consumption or the functionality of any hosting server or network device, so even in case there is a blackout, all the websites hosted on our platform will still be available without any interruptions and will function at top speed.
