The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 instruments for keeping a server working if there are problems with the primary power supply - a disruption or unreliable current that cannot keep the hosting server working properly, for instance. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, though it can often be called Uninterruptible Power Source too. The UPS is, basically, an effective battery which is connected to the server and to the electricity network at all times, so in case of any disruption, it's already operating, that permits the server to carry on working without losing any data. The diesel generator is an engine which will power up the entire data center. It does take some time to begin working and it's the UPS which gives it this time. These two power solutions are a requirement for any facility or service provider that wants to stop data loss and hardware damage resulting from an unexpected electric power problem.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Website Hosting
We offer you website hosting in three of the major data centers around the world. They're based in the United States, in the United kingdom and in Australia. Considering that data security and hosting server uptime are our priorities, the 3 facilities have a number of backup systems against power outages. Several diesel generators can keep the servers up and running for hours or even for a few days and each and every machine that is part of our cutting-edge cloud platform includes its own enterprise-class UPS to keep it operational until the generators begin working. This setup is amongst the reasons why we're able to promise a 99.9% web server and network uptime, so if you host your websites within a shared account with us, you will take full advantage of a fast and flawless service without having to worry about any disruptions due to electrical power outages.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers
The semi-dedicated server accounts that we provide are created within a state-of-the-art data center in downtown 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 that are part of our advanced website hosting platform and the network which deals with all of the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS unit is connected to each and every server to keep it online until a variety of generators kick in. The latter are effective enough to supply electric power for the whole data center for many hours without having to reduce the power consumption or the overall performance of any server or network device, so even in case there is an outage, all the websites hosted on our platform will still be available without disturbances and will work at top speed.
