UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems which are kept by hosting service providers within their data centers in the event there are interruptions in the primary power source or the current is unstable and unable to sustain the correct operation of the machines situated in the facility. UPS refers to Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is a powerful battery that works non-stop. It's connected to both the electric power network and the servers constantly, so anytime the power stops, the UPS is already functioning, which helps prevent the web servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is an engine which can supply the necessary electrical power to keep the machines up and running for a longer period of time. In the case of an outage, the UPS provides the necessary time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the main source is restored.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Cloud Website Hosting
The 99.9% network and hosting server uptime warranty which we offer is, in part, a result of the electrical power backup setup which we have in every of the three data centers in which we offer cloud website hosting packages - in Chicago (USA), in Coventry (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you acquire a new account to develop or move your sites, it'll be created on a modern cloud platform which consists of several clusters taking care of your content. Each web server in the given cluster offers its own potent enterprise-class UPS to keep it functioning no matter what, until a lot of electrical power generators boot up and provide the required power for the entire facility to be operational for a lot of hours. You'll not notice anything even when there's an interruption, because our backup units will power each of the devices and we will not have to restrict the total number of working web servers or the network equipment that addresses the traffic to your websites.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you purchase a semi-dedicated server account from our company, it shall be set up on a cutting-edge hosting platform within a data center with an excellent infrastructure. The Chicago-based facility uses an independent UPS for each and every server or network switch located there to make sure that the proper functioning of any unit won't be disrupted until effective generators start supplying the needed electricity. The latter are able to power the whole center for quite a long time without having to turn off any devices, so all of the sites hosted on our machines will continue to function at maximum speed and with no effect on their performance. These electric power backup options permit us to guarantee that any outage will never be a reason for your websites to go offline or to have limited functionality.
