UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems which are kept by hosting companies within their data centers in case there are interruptions in the primary power supply or the current is unstable and unable to support the correct running of the machines based within the facility. UPS refers to Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's a powerful battery which works non-stop. It is connected to both the electric power network and the web servers at all times, so when the power stops, the UPS is already operational, which prevents the machines from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is definitely an engine that can deliver the necessary electric power to keep the machines operational for a longer period of time. In the case of an outage, the UPS provides the needed time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the main power source is restored.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Cloud Hosting

The 99.9% network and web server uptime guarantee which we provide you with is, somewhat, a result of the electrical power backup setup that we have in each of the 3 data centers where we provide cloud hosting plans - in Chicago (USA), in London (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you purchase a new account to create or move your websites, it'll be set up on a cutting-edge cloud platform that consists of many clusters taking care of your content. Every single web server within the particular cluster provides its own effective enterprise-class UPS to keep it functioning no matter what, until quite a few electric power generators boot up and supply the necessary power for the whole data center to stay operating for a lot of hours. You won't notice anything even when there is a disruption, since our backup units could power each of the devices and we will not have to reduce the quantity of working web servers or the network equipment that deals with the traffic to your websites.

If you buy a semi-dedicated server account from our company, it shall be set up on a cutting-edge hosting platform inside a data center with an incredible infrastructure. The Chicago-based data center uses an individual UPS for every server or network switch located there to make certain that the correct operation of any device will not be interrupted until efficient generators start supplying the required electric power. The latter will power the whole facility for a very long time without the need to shut down any devices, so all the Internet sites hosted on our servers will continue to operate at optimum speed and with zero effect on their overall performance. These electrical power backup options permit us to guarantee that a possible outage will never be a reason for your Internet sites to go offline or to have lowered functionality.
