UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
Discover more about UPSs & diesel backup generators and learn why every single hosting data center includes them.
The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 devices for keeping a server functioning in case there are troubles with the primary source - a disruption or unstable current that can't keep the hosting server functioning properly, for instance. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, even though it can often be referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source too. The UPS is, in simple terms, an efficient battery which is connected to the server and to the electricity network consistently, so in case of any interruption, it is already functioning, which allows the web server to keep on running without losing any data. The diesel generator is an engine which will power up a whole data center. It does take some time to begin working and it is the UPS that provides this time. Those 2 power solutions are a necessity for any facility or hosting company that wants to avoid data loss and hardware damage caused by an unexpected power issue.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Shared Web Hosting
The 99.9% network and web server uptime guarantee that we provide is, partly, a result of the power backup setup that we have in every of the 3 data centers where we provide shared web hosting
packages - in Chicago (USA), in London (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you acquire a new account to create or move your sites, it shall be set up on an innovative cloud platform that consists of a number of clusters handling your content. Every single web server inside the particular cluster features its own efficient enterprise-class UPS to keep it functioning no matter what, until several power generators boot up and supply the required power for the whole facility to be working for many hours. You won't notice anything even when there is an interruption, due to the fact that our backup units could power all the devices and we will not need to restrict the total number of working web servers or the network equipment which manages the traffic to your sites.
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 within a data center with a fantastic infrastructure. The Chicago-based data center uses an individual UPS for every server or network switch located there to make sure that the proper operation of any device will not be interrupted until highly effective generators start producing the required electric power. The latter will power the entire center for a very long time without the need to shut down any machines, so all of the websites hosted on our hosting servers will continue to work at maximum speed and with no effect on their functionality. These electrical power backup options allow us to guarantee that a potential outage will never be a reason for your websites to go offline or to have lowered functionality.
