UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems that are kept by web hosting service providers inside their data centers in the event there are interruptions in the primary power supply or the current is shaky and unable to sustain the proper operation of the web servers based in the facility. UPS refers to Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's a powerful battery that works non-stop. It is connected to both the electrical power network and the servers consistently, so in case the power stops, the UPS is already functioning, which helps prevent the servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is an engine that can provide the needed power to keep the machines functioning for a longer period of time. In the case of an outage, the UPS provides the necessary time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the main power source is restored.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Cloud Hosting

The 99.9% network and web server uptime warranty which we offer you is, to some extent, a result of the electrical power backup setup that we have in each of the 3 data centers in which we provide cloud hosting packages - in Chicago (USA), in Coventry (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you acquire a new account to build or move your websites, it shall be created on a modern cloud platform which consists of a number of clusters taking care of your content. Every single hosting server inside the selected cluster features its own effective enterprise-class UPS to keep it working no matter what, until a lot of electric power generators boot up and give the necessary power for the whole center to be functional for several hours. You won't notice anything even in case there's an outage, due to the fact that our backup units can easily power all the devices and we will not have to reduce the amount of working servers or the network equipment that manages the traffic to your Internet sites.

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

The semi-dedicated server accounts which we offer you are created in a state-of-the-art data center in downtown Chicago and its electric power backup system is amongst the reasons why we are able to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the machines that are part of our advanced website hosting platform and the network that deals with all the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS system is attached to each server to keep it online until a number of generators kick in. The latter are effective enough to provide electrical power for the entire data center for many hours without having to restrict the power consumption or the productivity of any server or network device, so even if there is a disruption, all of the Internet sites hosted on our platform shall still be accessible without any interruptions and will work at top speed.
