The UPS and the diesel generator are two devices for keeping a server functional in case there are issues with the primary power source - an interruption or unreliable current that can't keep the web server functional, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, though it is frequently referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source as well. The UPS is, in essence, an efficient battery which is attached to the hosting server and to the electricity network consistently, so if there is any interruption, it's already working, which enables the server to carry on doing the job without losing any info. The diesel generator is an engine which will power up a whole data center. It needs some time to start working and it's the UPS that gives it that time. These 2 power solutions are fundamental for any facility or provider that wants to avoid data loss and hardware damage as a result of an unexpected electrical power issue.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Cloud Web Hosting

If you host your sites inside a cloud web hosting account with our company, you'll be able to forget about issues caused by electrical power outages, simply because, in contrast to many other providers, we do not keep many different hosting servers attached to a single UPS. Alternatively, each and every hosting server that's part of our avant-garde cloud platform features its own UPS unit that shall be able to keep it functioning for hours. Also, our data centers in the U.S., in the UK and in Australia have a number of generators that boot up for minutes and that can easily power all of the servers for an extensive period of time. In this way, the functionality of your Internet sites or their loading speed shall not be affected, so you can enjoy an uninterrupted high-quality web hosting service all of the time.

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

The semi-dedicated server accounts which we offer are created inside a state-of-the-art data center in the town center of Chicago and its electric power backup system is one of the reasons why we can afford to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the web servers that are part of our advanced web hosting platform and the network that deals with all of the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS device is connected to each and every server to keep it online until a number of generators kick in. The latter are potent enough to offer electricity for the entire center for many hours without having to restrict the power consumption or the functionality of any web server or network device, so even in case there is a blackout, all of the sites hosted on our platform shall still be available with no disruptions and will work at top speed.
