UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems that are kept by hosting service providers in their data centers in the event there are interruptions in the primary power source or the current is shaky and unable to support the correct functioning of the servers located inside the facility. UPS stands for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is an efficient battery that works non-stop. It is connected to both the power network and the servers all of the time, so in case the power stops, the UPS is already functioning, which helps prevent the web servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is definitely an engine that can provide you with the necessary electrical power to keep the machines operational for a longer period of time. In case of an outage, the UPS provides the necessary time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the primary power source is restored.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Cloud Web Hosting
If you host your websites inside a cloud web hosting
account with our company, you will be able to forget about complications caused by power outages, simply because, different from all kinds of other providers, we do not keep numerous web servers attached to only one UPS. Alternatively, each and every web server that is part of our avant-garde cloud platform has its own UPS unit that will be able to keep it operational for a long time. Additionally, our data centers in the USA, in the UK and in Australia have a number of generators which boot up for minutes and which will be able to power all of the web servers for an extensive length of time. This way, the performance of your websites or their loading speed won't be affected, so you'll be able to enjoy an uninterrupted high-quality web hosting service all of the time.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The semi-dedicated server
accounts that we provide you with are created inside a state-of-the-art data center in downtown Chicago and its electrical power backup system is among the reasons why we are able to afford to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the web servers which are part of our sophisticated web hosting platform and the network which addresses all of the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS system is attached to every single hosting server to keep it online until numerous generators kick in. The latter are effective enough to supply electric power for the whole center for a long time without having to limit the power consumption or the overall performance of any web server or network device, so even when there is a blackout, all of the sites hosted on our platform will still be accessible with no disruptions and will perform at top speed.
