UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
Learn more details on UPSs & diesel backup generators and learn why every single hosting data center includes them.
UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems that are kept by web hosting companies in their data centers in the event there are interruptions in the primary power supply or the current is unstable and unable to sustain the appropriate functioning of the machines based within the facility. UPS is short for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is an efficient battery which works non-stop. It is connected to both the electrical power network and the web servers at all times, so in case the power stops, the UPS is already up and running, which prevents the servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is an engine that can give you the needed electric power to keep the machines up and running for a longer period of time. In case of an outage, the UPS gives the needed time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the primary power supply is restored.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Web Hosting
If you host your Internet sites inside a web hosting
account with our company, you can forget about issues caused by electric power blackouts, since, different from various other providers, we do not keep multiple web servers attached to just one UPS. Rather, each and every server which is part of our avant-garde cloud platform comes with its own UPS device which shall be able to keep it up and running for a long time. Furthermore, our data centers in the U.S., in the UK and in Australia have many different generators that boot up for minutes and which will power each of the web servers for an extensive stretch of time. This way, the overall performance of your websites or their loading speed shall not be affected, so you may enjoy an uninterrupted high-quality web hosting service all of the time.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers
The semi-dedicated server
accounts which we provide are created within a state-of-the-art data center in the town center of Chicago and its power backup system is among the reasons why we can afford to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the hosting servers that are part of our innovative hosting platform and the network which manages all the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS device is attached to every single machine to keep it online until several generators kick in. The latter are efficient enough to supply electrical power for the entire facility for many hours with no need to restrict the power consumption or the productivity of any hosting server or network device, so even if there is an interruption, all the sites hosted on our platform will still be accessible with no disturbances and will operate at top speed.
