UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
What is a UPS unit? What exactly is a diesel backup generator? For what reason are they present in each and every data center?
UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems which are kept by web hosting service providers in their data centers in case there are interruptions in the primary power source or the current is unsound and unable to support the correct running of the machines situated within the facility. UPS stands for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's a highly effective battery that works non-stop. It is connected to both the electrical power network and the web servers consistently, so if the power stops, the UPS is already up and running, which prevents the machines from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is definitely an engine which can provide you with the required power to keep the servers operational for a longer period of time. In the case of an outage, the UPS gives the required 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 Hosting
If you host your sites in a shared hosting
account with our company, you can forget about complications caused by power blackouts, due to the fact that, unlike all kinds of other providers, we don't keep multiple hosting servers attached to only one UPS. Alternatively, every single web server which is part of our avant-garde cloud platform has its own UPS device which will keep it functioning for hours. Moreover, our data centers in the USA, in the United Kingdom and in Australia have multiple generators which boot up for minutes and which are able to power each of the servers for an extensive time period. That way, the features of your Internet sites or their loading speed will not be affected, so you can enjoy an uninterrupted high-quality web hosting service all the time.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The semi-dedicated server
accounts that we offer you are created within a state-of-the-art data center in the town center of Chicago and its electrical power backup system is among the reasons why we are able to afford to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the servers which are part of our innovative website hosting platform and the network that deals with all of the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS system is attached to each and every hosting server to keep it online until a variety of generators kick in. The latter are powerful enough to supply electric power for the whole data center for several hours without having to reduce the power consumption or the efficiency of any server or network device, so even if there is an outage, all the websites hosted on our platform will still be available with no disruptions and will work at top speed.
