UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems that are kept by website hosting service providers within their data centers in case there are interruptions in the main power source or the current is unsound and unable to support the proper functioning of the machines situated in the facility. UPS refers to Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's an efficient battery which works non-stop. It is connected to both the electrical power network and the servers all of the time, so anytime the power stops, the UPS is already working, which prevents the web servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is an engine that can give you the required electric power to keep the servers up and running for a longer period of time. In case there is an outage, the UPS provides the required 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 Cloud Hosting
If you host your websites within a cloud hosting account with our company, you will be able to forget about problems caused by electrical power blackouts, since, unlike various other providers, we do not keep many hosting servers attached to one UPS. Alternatively, every single web server that is part of our avant-garde cloud platform comes with its own UPS unit which will keep it up and running for hours on end. Also, our data centers in the USA, in the United Kingdom and in Australia have numerous generators that boot up for minutes and that are able to power all the servers for an extensive period of time. In this way, the performance of your sites or their loading speed will not be affected, so you can enjoy an uninterrupted high-quality hosting service all the time.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The semi-dedicated server accounts we provide are created inside a state-of-the-art data center in downtown Chicago and its electric power backup system is one of the reasons why we are able to afford to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the machines which are part of our innovative web hosting platform and the network which manages all of the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS unit is connected to each machine to keep it online until a variety of generators kick in. The latter are powerful enough to supply electricity for the entire data center for a long time without the need to restrict the power consumption or the productivity of any hosting server or network device, so even if there is an outage, all of the Internet sites hosted on our platform will still be available with no disruptions and will work at top speed.
