UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
Understand more about UPSs & diesel backup generators and discover why every hosting data center includes them.
UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems which are kept by hosting companies inside their data centers in the event there are interruptions in the primary power supply or the current is unstable and unable to maintain the proper functioning of the web servers based in the facility. UPS refers to Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is a highly effective battery that works non-stop. It's connected to both the electric power network and the servers constantly, so when the power stops, the UPS is already functioning, which helps prevent the machines from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is literally an engine that can provide you with the required electrical power to keep the web servers working for a longer period of time. If there is an outage, the UPS gives the needed 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 Shared Website Hosting
If you host your sites within a shared website hosting
account with our company, you can forget about problems caused by electrical power failures, simply because, unlike many other providers, we don't keep many different servers attached to one UPS. Rather, every hosting server that's part of our avant-garde cloud platform features its own UPS device that can keep it functioning for hours on end. Additionally, our data centers in the USA, in the United Kingdom and in Australia have a number of generators which boot up for minutes and which can power all the hosting servers for an extensive length of time. This way, the functionality of your Internet sites or their loading speed won't be affected, so you'll be able to enjoy an uninterrupted high-quality service at all times.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The semi-dedicated server
accounts that we provide are created within a state-of-the-art data center in the town center of Chicago and its power backup system is one of the reasons why we can afford to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the machines which are part of our highly developed hosting platform and the network that handles all the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS device is attached to every single server to keep it online until numerous generators kick in. The latter are efficient enough to provide electricity for the entire center for many hours with no need to reduce the power consumption or the efficiency of any server or network device, so even when there is a blackout, all of the sites hosted on our platform shall still be available with no disturbances and will work at top speed.
