The UPS and the diesel generator are two means for keeping a web server functional in case there are difficulties with the primary source - an interruption or unreliable current that can't keep the web server working properly, for instance. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, although it is sometimes called Uninterruptible Power Source as well. The UPS is, in simple terms, a powerful battery which is connected to the hosting server and to the power network consistently, so in the case of any interruption, it's already working, which allows the server to keep on running without losing any data. The diesel generator is an engine which can power up an 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 necessity for any facility or hosting company that wants to prevent information loss and hardware damage as a consequence of an unexpected electrical power issue.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Hosting
The 99.9% network and web server uptime guarantee which we provide is, somewhat, a result of the electrical power backup setup that we have in every of the three data centers where we provide hosting
packages - in Chicago (USA), in London (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you obtain a new account to develop or move your websites, it shall be created on a cutting-edge cloud platform which consists of many clusters handling your content. Every server in the specific cluster offers its own effective enterprise-class UPS to keep it working no matter what, until several electric power generators boot up and provide the necessary power for the entire data center to be operational for several hours. You won't notice anything even in case there is an interruption, because our backup units can easily power all the devices and we won't have to limit the number of working servers or the network equipment that handles the traffic to your Internet sites.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The semi-dedicated server
accounts we provide are created within a state-of-the-art data center in the downtown area of Chicago and its power backup system is one of the reasons why we are able to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the machines that are part of our highly developed website hosting platform and the network that deals with all of the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS device is attached to each machine to keep it online until numerous generators kick in. The latter are effective enough to supply electrical power for the whole data center for several hours with no need to restrict the power consumption or the productivity of any hosting server or network device, so even in the event that there is a disruption, all of the sites hosted on our platform will still be accessible with no disturbances and will work at top speed.
