UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems which are kept by web hosting companies inside their data centers in the event there are interruptions in the main power source or the current is unsound and unable to sustain the correct functioning of the machines situated in the facility. UPS refers to Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's a highly effective battery that works non-stop. It's connected to both the electric power network and the web servers all of the time, so when the power stops, the UPS is already working, which prevents the web servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is literally an engine that can give you the needed electrical power to keep the servers working for a longer period of time. In the event of an outage, the UPS gives the needed 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 Web Hosting

The 99.9% network and web server uptime guarantee that we offer is, in part, a result of the electric power backup setup that we have in each of the three data centers in which we offer web hosting packages - in Chicago (USA), in Coventry (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you purchase a new account to develop or move your Internet sites, it'll be set up on a modern cloud platform which consists of numerous clusters dealing with your content. Every web server within the given cluster provides its own effective enterprise-class UPS to keep it operational no matter what, until quite a few power generators boot up and give the required power for the whole center to stay working for a lot of hours. You will not notice anything even if there is an outage, due to the fact that our backup units could power each of the devices and we won't have to limit the quantity of working hosting servers or the network equipment that handles the traffic to your websites.

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

The semi-dedicated server accounts which we provide you with are created in a state-of-the-art data center in downtown Chicago and its electric power backup system is one of the reasons why we are able to afford to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the hosting servers that are part of our innovative web hosting platform and the network which deals with all of the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS system is connected to each and every machine to keep it online until a number of generators kick in. The latter are effective enough to supply electrical power for the whole center for a long time without the need to reduce the power consumption or the efficiency of any hosting server or network device, so even if there is a blackout, all the sites hosted on our platform shall still be accessible with no interruptions and will perform at top speed.
