UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems that are kept by web hosting providers inside their data centers in case there are interruptions in the primary power supply or the current is unstable and unable to support the correct functioning of the machines based within the facility. UPS stands for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is a highly effective battery that works non-stop. It's connected to both the electric power network and the servers consistently, so if the power stops, the UPS is already operational, which helps prevent the servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is literally an engine which can provide the necessary power to keep the machines working for a longer period of time. If there is an outage, the UPS provides the required time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the main source is restored.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Hosting

The 99.9% network and web server uptime warranty that we provide is, partly, a result of the electric power backup setup that we have in every of the 3 data centers in which we provide hosting packages - in Chicago (USA), in London (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you get a new account to create or move your Internet sites, it will be created on a modern cloud platform that consists of several clusters controlling your content. Every machine within the given cluster provides its own effective enterprise-class UPS to keep it working no matter what, until several electric power generators boot up and provide the necessary power for the whole facility to be functional for many hours. You'll not notice anything even in the event there is an outage, due to the fact that our backup units will be able to power all the devices and we will not need to limit the quantity of working servers or the network equipment which handles the traffic to your websites.

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

If you purchase a semi-dedicated server account from us, it shall be set up on a cutting-edge hosting platform in a data center with a superb infrastructure. The Chicago-based data center uses a separate UPS for every single server or network switch located there to make sure that the proper functioning of any device will not be disrupted until efficient generators start producing the needed electrical power. The latter can easily power the entire facility for quite a long time without the need to shut down any devices, so each of the sites hosted on our hosting servers will continue to function at optimum speed and with no effect on their performance. These power backup options permit us to ensure that a possible outage will never be a reason for your Internet sites to go offline or to have limited functionality.
