UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems that are kept by web hosting companies in their data centers in the event there are interruptions in the main power supply or the current is shaky and unable to support the appropriate functioning of the servers based inside the facility. UPS is short for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's a powerful battery that works non-stop. It is connected to both the power network and the servers constantly, so anytime the power stops, the UPS is already functioning, which prevents the web servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is definitely an engine which can provide the necessary energy to keep the servers operational for a longer period of time. In case there is an outage, the UPS provides the needed time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the primary power supply is restored.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Hosting
We offer you hosting in three of the largest sized data centers worldwide. They are based in the USA, in the United kingdom and in Australia. Due to the fact that data integrity and hosting server uptime are our priorities, all three facilities have a few backup systems against electrical power outages. A number of diesel generators can keep the hosting servers functional for hours or even for several days and each and every machine which is part of our cutting-edge cloud platform provides its own enterprise-class UPS to keep it working until the generators kick in. This setup is amongst the reasons why we're able to ensure a 99.9% hosting server and network uptime, so if you host your sites within a shared account with us, you'll take advantage of a fast and outstanding service and never having to worry about any disruptions due to power outages.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The semi-dedicated server accounts that we provide are created in 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 guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the machines that are part of our advanced hosting platform and the network which handles all the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS unit is connected to every web server to keep it online until a number of generators kick in. The latter are effective enough to supply electric power for the entire center for many hours without having to restrict the power consumption or the functionality of any server or network device, so even in case there is an outage, all of the websites hosted on our platform will still be accessible without disturbances and will function at top speed.
