The UPS and the diesel generator are two means for keeping a web server functional in case there are troubles with the main source - an interruption or unreliable current which cannot keep the server working correctly, for instance. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, even though it is frequently referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source also. The UPS is, in simple terms, a highly effective battery that's connected to the server and to the electric power network all the time, so in the case of any interruption, it is already working, which allows the hosting server to keep on working without losing any info. The diesel generator is an engine that can power up a whole data center. It needs some time to start working and it's the UPS that gives it this time. Those 2 power solutions are a requirement for any facility or provider that wants to prevent information loss and hardware damage as a result of an unexpected power issue.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Shared Hosting
The 99.9% network and server uptime warranty that we provide is, in part, a result of the electrical power backup setup that we have in each of the three data centers in which we offer shared hosting packages - in Chicago (USA), in Coventry (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you purchase a new account to develop or move your Internet sites, it'll be set up on a cutting-edge cloud platform that consists of a number of clusters taking care of your content. Every hosting server inside the particular cluster provides its own highly effective enterprise-class UPS to keep it working no matter what, until a number of electrical power generators boot up and provide the necessary power for the whole data center to stay working for several hours. You won't notice anything even when there's an interruption, because our backup units will power all the devices and we won't have to restrict the total number of working servers or the network equipment that addresses the traffic to your sites.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you buy a semi-dedicated server account from us, it shall be set up on a cutting-edge hosting platform in a data center with an outstanding infrastructure. The Chicago-based facility uses a separate UPS for every server or network switch located there to make certain that the proper operation of any device won't be interrupted until powerful generators start producing the needed electric power. The latter will be able to power the whole data center for quite a long time with no need to shut down any equipment, so all the Internet sites hosted on our servers shall continue to operate at optimum speed and with zero effect on their performance. These electric power backup options permit us to ensure that a potential outage will never be a reason for your sites to go offline or to have reduced functionality.
