The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 means for keeping a server functioning in case there are difficulties with the main power source - an interruption or shaky current that can't keep the web server functional, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, even though it is frequently called Uninterruptible Power Source as well. The UPS is, in essence, an efficient battery that's attached to the web server and to the electricity network all of the time, so in the case of any interruption, it is already functioning, which enables the hosting server to carry on running without losing any info. 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 that provides this time. Those 2 power solutions are absolutely essential for any facility or hosting company that wants to stop info loss and hardware damage as a result of an unexpected power problem.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Shared Website Hosting

The 99.9% network and server uptime warranty which we offer is, partly, a result of the electrical power backup setup we have in every of the 3 data centers where we offer shared website hosting plans - in Chicago (USA), in Coventry (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you obtain a new account to create or move your Internet sites, it'll be set up on a progressive cloud platform that consists of many clusters dealing with your content. Each server inside the specific cluster features its own efficient enterprise-class UPS to keep it functioning no matter what, until several power generators boot up and supply the required power for the whole data center to stay functional for several hours. You will not notice anything even in case there's a disruption, because our backup units will be able to power all the devices and we won't need to reduce the total number of working servers or the network equipment which handles the traffic to your websites.

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

If you buy a semi-dedicated server account from us, it will be set up on a cutting-edge hosting platform inside a data center with a superb 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 correct operation of any device will not be disturbed until efficient generators start supplying the necessary electrical power. The latter can power the entire data center for quite a while with no need to shut down any machines, so all of the sites hosted on our servers will continue to work at top speed and with zero effect on their capabilities. These power backup options permit us to guarantee that a possible outage will never be a reason for your Internet sites to go offline or to have limited functionality.
