The UPS and the diesel generator are two instruments for keeping a server operational in case there are difficulties with the primary source - an outage or unreliable current which cannot keep the machine working properly, for instance. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, although it can often be called Uninterruptible Power Source as well. The UPS is, basically, a powerful battery that's connected to the server and to the power network constantly, so in the case of any blackout, it is already functioning, which allows the hosting server to carry on doing the job without losing any data. The diesel generator is an engine that can power up a whole data center. It needs some time to begin working and it is the UPS which gives it that time. Those two power solutions are an absolute necessity for any facility or hosting company that wants to avoid information loss and hardware damage resulting from an unexpected power problem.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Shared Hosting

The 99.9% network and web server uptime guarantee which we provide is, somewhat, a result of the electric power backup setup we have in each of the three data centers in which we provide shared hosting plans - in Chicago (USA), in London (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you get a new account to build or move your sites, it'll be created on a cutting-edge cloud platform which consists of a number of clusters handling your content. Each web server inside the selected cluster features its own potent enterprise-class UPS to keep it up and running no matter what, until a lot of electric power generators boot up and supply the required power for the entire data center to remain functional for several hours. You'll not notice anything even in the event there's an interruption, since our backup units will power all the devices and we will not have to reduce the number of working web servers or the network equipment which deals with the traffic to your websites.

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

The semi-dedicated server accounts which we offer you are created inside a state-of-the-art data center in downtown Chicago and its power backup system is one of the reasons why we are able to afford to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the hosting servers that are part of our sophisticated hosting platform and the network which addresses all the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS device is connected to every web server to keep it online until a number of generators kick in. The latter are effective enough to deliver electrical power for the entire center for many hours without the need to reduce the power consumption or the productivity of any server or network device, so even if there is an outage, all of the Internet sites hosted on our platform shall still be available with no disruptions and will function at top speed.
