UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems that are kept by website hosting providers within their data centers in case there are interruptions in the main power supply or the current is unstable and unable to sustain the appropriate running of the servers located inside the facility. UPS refers to Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's a powerful battery which works non-stop. It is 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 prevents the servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is an engine which can deliver the needed power to keep the machines working for a longer period of time. In case of an outage, the UPS provides the required time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the primary source is restored.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Shared Hosting
The 99.9% network and server uptime guarantee which we provide you with is, to some extent, a result of the electrical power backup setup we have in every of the three data centers where we offer shared hosting plans - in Chicago (USA), in London (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you acquire a new account to build or move your websites, it will be created on a modern cloud platform that consists of many clusters dealing with your content. Every machine within the particular cluster features its own powerful enterprise-class UPS to keep it up and running no matter what, until a number of power generators boot up and supply the required power for the entire facility to be operating for several hours. You won't notice anything even when there is a disruption, due to the fact that our backup units can easily power each of the devices and we will not need to restrict the number of working servers or the network equipment which addresses the traffic to your 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 in a data center with a fantastic infrastructure. The Chicago-based center uses an independent UPS for every web server or network switch located there to make certain that the ideal functioning of any unit won't be interrupted until powerful generators start supplying the required electrical power. The latter can easily power the entire center for quite a while with no need to shut down any devices, so each of the websites hosted on our machines will continue to work at max speed and with zero effect on their performance. These power backup options enable us to guarantee that any outage will never be a reason for your Internet sites to go offline or to have lowered functionality.
