UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems that are kept by website hosting companies inside their data centers in the event that there are interruptions in the primary power supply or the current is shaky and unable to support the appropriate operation of the web servers based in the facility. UPS stands for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is a powerful battery that works non-stop. It is connected to both the electrical power network and the web servers constantly, so when the power stops, the UPS is already operational, which prevents the web servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is an engine which can supply the required electrical power to keep the servers up and running for a longer period of time. In the event of an outage, the UPS provides the required 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 Hosting
The 99.9% network and server uptime guarantee that we offer you is, to some extent, a result of the electric power backup setup which we have in every of the 3 data centers where we provide cloud hosting packages - in Chicago (USA), in London (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you obtain a new account to build or move your websites, it'll be set up on a modern cloud platform that consists of numerous clusters dealing with your content. Every single machine inside the specific cluster features its own highly effective enterprise-class UPS to keep it functioning no matter what, until several electrical power generators boot up and give the necessary power for the entire data center to remain functional for many hours. You'll not notice anything even in the event there is a disruption, since our backup units will be able to power each of the devices and we shall not need to restrict the quantity of working servers or the network equipment which addresses the traffic to your sites.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you purchase a semi-dedicated server account from us, it shall be created on a cutting-edge hosting platform inside a data center with an outstanding infrastructure. The Chicago-based facility uses a separate UPS for every server or network switch located there to ensure that the proper functioning of any piece of equipment shall not be interrupted until powerful generators start supplying the needed electric power. The latter can power the whole facility for quite a long time without having to shut down any equipment, so all of the Internet sites hosted on our servers will continue to operate at optimum speed and without any effect on their capabilities. These power backup options permit us to guarantee that a potential outage will never be a reason for your Internet sites to go offline or to have reduced functionality.
