UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems which are kept by hosting providers in their data centers in the event there are interruptions in the primary power supply or the current is unsound and unable to sustain the appropriate running of the machines located within the facility. UPS refers to Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's an efficient battery which works non-stop. It's connected to both the electric power network and the web servers at all times, so if the power stops, the UPS is already up and running, which helps prevent the web servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is an engine which can give you the needed electric power to keep the web servers up and running for a longer period of time. If there is an outage, the UPS gives the needed time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the main source is restored.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Cloud Web Hosting
The 99.9% network and web server uptime guarantee which we offer you is, to some extent, a result of the power backup setup that we have in each of the three data centers in which we provide cloud web hosting packages - in Chicago (USA), in Coventry (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you obtain a new account to create or move your websites, it will be set up on a progressive cloud platform which consists of several clusters taking care of your content. Each web server within the selected cluster features its own powerful enterprise-class UPS to keep it working no matter what, until several electrical power generators boot up and give the required power for the whole center to remain operational for many hours. You'll not notice anything even in case there's an interruption, due to the fact that our backup units will be able to power each of the devices and we shall not have to reduce the number of working web servers or the network equipment which manages the traffic to your sites.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you order a semi-dedicated server account from us, it shall be created on a cutting-edge hosting platform in a data center with an incredible infrastructure. The Chicago-based facility uses an independent UPS for every server or network switch located there to make certain that the correct functioning of any unit shall not be disrupted until highly effective generators start producing the necessary electric power. The latter can easily power the whole center for quite a while without having to shut down any equipment, so each of the sites hosted on our servers will continue to operate at optimum speed and with no effect on their efficiency. These electrical power backup options permit us to guarantee that a possible outage will never be a reason for your websites to go offline or to have reduced functionality.
