UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems which are kept by web hosting companies inside their data centers in case there are interruptions in the primary power source or the current is unsound and unable to sustain the proper functioning of the web servers situated inside the facility. UPS stands for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is an effective battery that works non-stop. It is connected to both the electrical power network and the web servers all of the time, so if the power stops, the UPS is already working, which helps prevent the web servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is an engine which can provide the necessary energy to keep the servers working for a longer period of time. If there is an outage, the UPS provides the required 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 Hosting
If you host your sites in a cloud hosting
account with us, you'll be able to forget about complications caused by power failures, because, in contrast to many other providers, we do not keep several web servers attached to only one UPS. Instead, every hosting server that's part of our avant-garde cloud platform has its own UPS unit which can keep it functioning for hours. Also, our data centers in the U.S., in the United Kingdom and in Australia have many different generators that boot up for minutes and which will power all of the servers for an extensive amount of time. That way, the features of your websites or their loading speed will not be affected, so you can enjoy an uninterrupted high-quality hosting service constantly.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers
The semi-dedicated server
accounts we offer are created in a state-of-the-art data center in downtown Chicago and its electrical power backup system is one of the reasons why we can afford to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the servers that are part of our advanced web hosting platform and the network that deals with all the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS system is connected to every server to keep it online until a number of generators kick in. The latter are effective enough to deliver electric power for the whole facility for many hours without having to limit the power consumption or the efficiency of any hosting server or network device, so even in the event that there is a disruption, all of the sites hosted on our platform shall still be accessible without any disruptions and will operate at top speed.
