UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems that are kept by website hosting companies in their data centers in case there are interruptions in the main power supply or the current is shaky and unable to support the proper operation of the machines located within the facility. UPS is short for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is a highly effective battery which works non-stop. It is connected to both the electric power network and the servers consistently, so when the power stops, the UPS is already up and running, which prevents the machines from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is certainly an engine that can provide you with the needed power to keep the machines functioning for a longer period of time. In case of an outage, the UPS gives the required time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the main power supply is restored.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Shared Web Hosting

The 99.9% network and server uptime warranty which we provide is, partly, a result of the power backup setup we have in each of the 3 data centers where we provide shared web hosting packages - in Chicago (USA), in Coventry (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you get a new account to develop or move your Internet sites, it shall be created on an innovative cloud platform which consists of numerous clusters taking care of your content. Each and every web server within the given cluster provides its own potent enterprise-class UPS to keep it up and running no matter what, until quite a few power generators boot up and provide the required power for the whole facility to be operational for many hours. You'll not notice anything even in the event there is an interruption, as our backup units could power each of the devices and we won't need to reduce the amount of working servers or the network equipment which handles the traffic to your websites.

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

If you get a semi-dedicated server account from us, it will be created on a cutting-edge hosting platform inside a data center with an excellent infrastructure. The Chicago-based data center uses an independent UPS for each hosting server or network switch located there to make sure that the ideal operation of any device shall not be disrupted until powerful generators start providing the needed electricity. The latter are able to power the entire data center for a very long time without the need to shut down any devices, so all the sites hosted on our hosting servers shall continue to work at maximum speed and with zero effect on their functionality. These power backup options permit us to ensure that a possible outage will never be a reason for your Internet sites to go offline or to have minimized functionality.
