The UPS and the diesel generator are two means for keeping a web server functional if there are problems with the main power source - an outage or unreliable current which cannot keep the server functional, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, even though it is sometimes called Uninterruptible Power Source as well. The UPS is, in essence, a highly effective battery that's attached to the hosting server and to the electricity network all of the time, so in case there is any disruption, it's already working, that permits the server to continue operating without losing any information. The diesel generator is an engine that can power up the entire data center. It needs some time to start working and it's the UPS that gives it that time. These two power solutions are a necessity for any facility or service provider that wants to prevent info loss and hardware damage as a consequence of an unexpected electrical power problem.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Shared Web Hosting
The 99.9% network and server uptime warranty that we offer is, to some extent, a result of the electric power backup setup that we have in each of the 3 data centers where we offer shared web hosting plans - in Chicago (USA), in London (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you acquire a new account to build or move your sites, it'll be created on an innovative cloud platform which consists of several clusters dealing with your content. Each and every web server inside the selected cluster provides its own efficient enterprise-class UPS to keep it operational no matter what, until quite a few power generators boot up and provide the required power for the whole facility to be functional for several hours. You will not notice anything even in the event there's a disruption, due to the fact that our backup units can power all the devices and we won't have to limit the total number of working hosting servers or the network equipment that manages the traffic to your Internet sites.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you purchase a semi-dedicated server account from our company, it shall be created on a cutting-edge hosting platform within a data center with a superb infrastructure. The Chicago-based facility uses a different UPS for every single web server or network switch located there to make certain that the correct functioning of any piece of equipment shall not be disturbed until powerful generators start producing the necessary electrical power. The latter will power the entire facility for quite a while without having to shut down any devices, so all the websites hosted on our servers shall continue to function at optimum speed and with no effect on their performance. These electrical power backup options allow us to guarantee that any outage will never be a reason for your sites to go offline or to have lowered functionality.
