The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 devices for keeping a server operational if there are issues with the main power supply - an outage or shaky current which cannot keep the server working properly, for instance. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, even though it is sometimes referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source as well. The UPS is, essentially, an effective battery that is attached to the server and to the power network constantly, so in case of any blackout, it is already working, which allows the server to continue doing the job without losing any info. The diesel generator is an engine that can power up a whole data center. It needs some time to start working and it's the UPS that provides that time. These two power solutions are absolutely essential for any facility or provider that wants to stop data loss and hardware damage as a consequence of an unexpected electrical power issue.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Shared Web Hosting
The 99.9% network and web server uptime guarantee which we provide is, partly, a result of the power backup setup that we have in every of the 3 data centers where we offer shared web hosting packages - in Chicago (USA), in Coventry (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you acquire a new account to build or move your sites, it'll be created on a progressive cloud platform which consists of a number of clusters dealing with your content. Every machine in the selected cluster features its own effective enterprise-class UPS to keep it working no matter what, until several power generators boot up and provide the required power for the entire data center to stay operational for many hours. You won't notice anything even in the event there's a disruption, as our backup units will power all of the devices and we will not need to restrict the amount of working hosting servers or the network equipment that handles the traffic to your websites.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you get a semi-dedicated server account from us, it shall be set up on a cutting-edge hosting platform in a data center with an incredible infrastructure. The Chicago-based data center uses a different UPS for each web server or network switch located there to make sure that the ideal operation of any piece of equipment will not be interrupted until highly effective generators start supplying the required electricity. The latter can power the entire data center for quite a long time with no need to shut down any equipment, so all the websites hosted on our web servers will continue to function at max speed and with no effect on their performance. These electric power backup options permit us to guarantee that a possible outage will never be a reason for your websites to go offline or to have limited functionality.
