The UPS and the diesel generator are two devices for keeping a server working in case there are difficulties with the primary power supply - an outage or shaky current that can't keep the server working correctly, for instance. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, although it is frequently called Uninterruptible Power Source as well. The UPS is, in simple terms, an efficient battery that's attached to the web server and to the electric power network all the time, so in the case of any disturbance, it's already operating, which enables the web server to continue doing the job without losing any information. The diesel generator is an engine which can power up a whole data center. It does take some time to start working and it is the UPS which gives it that time. Those two power solutions are fundamental for any facility or provider that wants to avoid data loss and hardware damage resulting from an unexpected electrical power problem.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Hosting
The 99.9% network and web server uptime warranty which we provide is, to some extent, a result of the electric power backup setup which we have in each of the three data centers in which we offer hosting plans - in Chicago (USA), in Coventry (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you get a new account to develop or move your sites, it will be created on an innovative cloud platform that consists of a number of clusters dealing with your content. Each web server within the specific cluster features its own effective enterprise-class UPS to keep it operational no matter what, until a lot of electric power generators boot up and give the necessary power for the whole data center to be working for several hours. You won't notice anything even if there's an outage, due to the fact that our backup units will power all the devices and we won't have to limit the number of working servers or the network equipment that handles the traffic to your sites.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you order a semi-dedicated server account from our company, it'll be set up on a cutting-edge hosting platform inside a data center with a superb infrastructure. The Chicago-based center uses an independent UPS for each and every server or network switch located there to make certain that the ideal functioning of any device shall not be disrupted until powerful generators start supplying the required electricity. The latter will power the entire center for a very long time with no need to turn off any devices, so all of the sites hosted on our web servers shall continue to function at top speed and without any effect on their efficiency. These power backup options allow us to ensure that any outage will never be a reason for your Internet sites to go offline or to have reduced functionality.
