UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems which are kept by website hosting service providers within their data centers in the event that there are interruptions in the primary power supply or the current is unstable and unable to sustain the appropriate running of the machines situated 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's connected to both the electric power network and the servers all of the time, so anytime the power stops, the UPS is already operational, which prevents the servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is an engine which can provide you with the needed energy to keep the servers operational for a longer period of time. In the event of an outage, the UPS gives the necessary time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the main power source is restored.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Shared Website Hosting
The 99.9% network and web server uptime guarantee which we provide is, in part, a result of the power backup setup we have in each of the 3 data centers in which we offer shared website hosting packages - in Chicago (USA), in Coventry (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you get a new account to develop or move your Internet sites, it'll be set up on an innovative cloud platform that consists of many clusters dealing with your content. Each hosting server within the selected cluster offers its own effective enterprise-class UPS to keep it operational no matter what, until several power generators boot up and provide the necessary power for the whole facility to stay operational for many hours. You will not notice anything even in case there's an outage, since our backup units will be able to power all of the devices and we won't need to restrict the quantity of working web servers or the network equipment which addresses the traffic to your websites.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you buy a semi-dedicated server account from us, it'll be created on a cutting-edge hosting platform in a data center with an excellent infrastructure. The Chicago-based center uses an independent UPS for every single server or network switch located there to ensure that the correct functioning of any piece of equipment won't be disrupted until effective generators start providing the required electrical power. The latter are able to power the whole facility for a very long time without having to turn off any machines, so all of the websites hosted on our web servers shall continue to operate at maximum speed and without any effect on their functionality. These power backup options enable us to guarantee that a potential outage will never be a reason for your websites to go offline or to have lowered functionality.
