The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 devices for keeping a server functional if there are difficulties with the primary power source - an outage or shaky current which cannot keep the hosting server functional, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, although it can often be referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source also. The UPS is, in simple terms, an effective battery which is connected to the hosting server and to the electricity network constantly, so in case there is any blackout, it is already working, which enables the web server to keep on working without losing any information. The diesel generator is an engine which can power up the entire data center. It needs some time to begin working and it is the UPS which gives it this time. Those 2 power solutions are a requirement for any facility or hosting company that wants to avoid data loss and hardware damage as a result of an unexpected power problem.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Shared Web Hosting

The 99.9% network and hosting server uptime warranty that we provide is, to some extent, a result of the power backup setup that we have in each of the three data centers where we provide shared web hosting packages - in Chicago (USA), in London (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you obtain a new account to create or move your websites, it'll be created on an innovative cloud platform which consists of several clusters taking care of your content. Each and every web server within the particular cluster has its own effective enterprise-class UPS to keep it up and running no matter what, until quite a few electrical power generators boot up and provide the necessary power for the entire center to be working for many hours. You'll not notice anything even in case there's an outage, since our backup units can easily power all the devices and we won't need to limit the amount of working hosting servers or the network equipment that addresses the traffic to your sites.

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

If you order a semi-dedicated server account from us, it will be set up on a cutting-edge hosting platform in a data center with an excellent infrastructure. The Chicago-based data center uses a separate UPS for every single web server or network switch located there to make sure that the ideal functioning of any unit shall not be disrupted until powerful generators start producing the needed electrical power. The latter can power the entire data center for quite a while without having to turn off any machines, so all the Internet sites hosted on our hosting servers shall continue to function at max speed and without any effect on their overall performance. These electric power backup options enable us to guarantee that any outage will never be a reason for your websites to go offline or to have lowered functionality.
