The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 instruments for keeping a server functioning in case there are issues with the main power source - a disruption or shaky current that can't keep the hosting server working correctly, for instance. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, even though it is oftentimes called Uninterruptible Power Source too. The UPS is, essentially, a powerful battery that's connected to the hosting server and to the electricity network at all times, so in case of any interruption, it is already operating, which allows the server to continue doing the job without losing any data. The diesel generator is an engine which will power up a whole data center. It needs some time to begin working and it's the UPS which provides that time. These 2 power solutions are a requirement for any facility or hosting company that wants to prevent data loss and hardware damage as a result of an unexpected electrical power issue.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Shared Website Hosting
The 99.9% network and web server uptime warranty that we provide you with is, somewhat, a result of the electric power backup setup that we have in each of the three data centers in which we provide shared website hosting
plans - in Chicago (USA), in London (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you get a new account to create or move your websites, it shall be created on a modern cloud platform which consists of many clusters controlling your content. Each machine inside the given cluster offers its own potent enterprise-class UPS to keep it operational no matter what, until quite a few power generators boot up and provide the required power for the whole facility to remain operating for a lot of hours. You won't notice anything even in case there is a disruption, as our backup units could power all of the devices and we won't have to limit the number of working web servers or the network equipment that addresses the traffic to your websites.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers
The semi-dedicated server
accounts we provide you with are created within a state-of-the-art data center in the downtown area of Chicago and its power backup system is amongst the reasons why we can afford to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the servers which are part of our advanced website hosting platform and the network which deals with all the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS system is connected to every single hosting server to keep it online until numerous generators kick in. The latter are effective enough to offer electricity for the whole facility for a long time with no need to reduce the power consumption or the functionality of any web server or network device, so even in case there is an interruption, all the Internet sites hosted on our platform shall still be available without any disruptions and will perform at top speed.
