UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. That is a battery which is used to power a personal computer or a web server in order to avoid the loss of data if the main source of energy fails for whatever reason or becomes unstable. A diesel generator practically self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are used as a backup in data centers to back up the power supply and to ensure the consistent functioning of all the machines located there. Due to the fact that the UPS runs at all times, it offers the desired power for the web servers to remain functioning until the generator starts and takes over. Using this type of a backup is vital for any data center or web hosting provider that wants to keep their hardware and data intact in case of a power surge or outage, because it provides them with enough time to react until the issue is resolved and the main power supply is restored.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Shared Website Hosting

The 99.9% network and hosting server uptime warranty which we offer is, partly, a result of the power backup setup which we have in each of the 3 data centers in which we provide shared website hosting packages - in Chicago (USA), in London (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you obtain a new account to build or move your websites, it'll be set up on an innovative cloud platform that consists of many clusters handling your content. Every machine inside the particular cluster features its own potent enterprise-class UPS to keep it functioning no matter what, until quite a few electrical power generators boot up and give the necessary power for the whole center to be working for a lot of hours. You will not notice anything even in the event there is an interruption, as our backup units can easily power each of the devices and we will not have to restrict the number of working servers or the network equipment which deals with the traffic to your websites.

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

The semi-dedicated server accounts we offer 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 can afford to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the hosting servers which are part of our highly developed website hosting platform and the network that manages all of the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS system is connected to every hosting server to keep it online until several generators kick in. The latter are effective enough to supply electric power for the whole facility for several hours without having to minimize the power consumption or the overall performance of any server or network device, so even in the event that there is a disruption, all the Internet sites hosted on our platform will still be available with no interruptions and will perform at top speed.
