The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 means for keeping a web server functional in case there are issues with the main power source - an outage 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 frequently referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source also. The UPS is, basically, a highly effective battery that's attached to the web server and to the electric power network at all times, so in the event of any disturbance, it is already operating, which allows the hosting server to continue running without losing any information. The diesel generator is an engine which can power up an entire data center. It does take some time to start working and it's the UPS that provides that time. These two power solutions are fundamental for any facility or service provider that wants to avoid info 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, somewhat, a result of the power backup setup that we have in each of the 3 data centers in which we offer shared hosting
plans - in Chicago (USA), in London (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you purchase a new account to build or move your websites, it'll be created on a modern cloud platform that consists of numerous clusters taking care of your content. Each server within the selected cluster provides its own highly effective enterprise-class UPS to keep it up and running no matter what, until quite a few electric power generators boot up and supply the required power for the whole facility to remain functional for several hours. You will not notice anything even if there is an outage, due to the fact that our backup units will power each of the devices and we shall not need to restrict the amount of working web servers or the network equipment that deals with the traffic to your websites.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers
The semi-dedicated server
accounts we offer you are created in a state-of-the-art data center in the town center of Chicago and its electrical power backup system is one of the reasons why we are able to afford to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the hosting servers that are part of our highly developed website hosting platform and the network which deals with all the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS device is connected to every single machine to keep it online until a number of generators kick in. The latter are powerful enough to deliver electricity for the entire center for a long time without the need to reduce the power consumption or the functionality of any server or network device, so even when there is a blackout, all the websites hosted on our platform shall still be accessible without disturbances and will operate at top speed.
