UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems that are kept by website hosting providers within their data centers in the event there are interruptions in the main power source or the current is unsound and unable to maintain the proper functioning of the machines based within the facility. UPS stands for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is a highly effective battery which works non-stop. It is connected to both the electrical power network and the servers all of the time, so if the power stops, the UPS is already working, which helps prevent the web servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is literally an engine which can supply the required energy to keep the servers operational for a longer period of time. In case there is an outage, the UPS gives the necessary time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the main source is restored.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Shared Web Hosting

The 99.9% network and web server uptime warranty which we offer is, partly, a result of the electric power backup setup we have in each of the 3 data centers where we offer shared web hosting plans - in Chicago (USA), in Coventry (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you get a new account to develop or move your Internet sites, it will be set up on an innovative cloud platform which consists of numerous clusters controlling your content. Every single hosting server inside the particular cluster offers its own highly effective enterprise-class UPS to keep it functioning no matter what, until several electric power generators boot up and give the required power for the entire facility to remain operational for a lot of hours. You will not notice anything even in the event there's a disruption, due to the fact that our backup units could power all the devices and we won't need to reduce the number of working web servers or the network equipment which addresses the traffic to your Internet sites.

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

The semi-dedicated server accounts we provide are created inside a state-of-the-art data center in the downtown area of Chicago and its electrical power backup system is amongst the reasons why we are able to afford to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the servers that are part of our sophisticated website hosting platform and the network that handles all of the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS system is attached to each hosting server to keep it online until a variety of generators kick in. The latter are efficient enough to deliver electricity for the whole data center for a long time without having to minimize the power consumption or the productivity of any 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 without disruptions and will operate at top speed.
