The UPS and the diesel generator are two devices for keeping a server operational in case there are difficulties with the primary power source - an outage or unreliable current which cannot keep the hosting server working properly, for instance. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, although it is sometimes referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source also. The UPS is, in simple terms, a powerful battery that is connected to the web server and to the electric power network consistently, so in case of any disturbance, it is already working, which allows the web server to continue operating without losing any info. The diesel generator is an engine which can power up the entire data center. It needs some time to begin working and it's the UPS that gives it that time. Those two power solutions are fundamental for any facility or service provider that wants to stop information loss and hardware damage caused by an unexpected electric power problem.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Shared Website Hosting
The 99.9% network and web server uptime warranty that we provide is, somewhat, a result of the electric power backup setup which we have in each of the three data centers where we offer shared website hosting
plans - in Chicago (USA), in London (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you obtain a new account to develop or move your Internet sites, it'll be created on a progressive cloud platform which consists of many clusters taking care of your content. Each and every hosting server in the particular cluster features its own effective enterprise-class UPS to keep it functioning no matter what, until quite a few electric power generators boot up and provide the necessary power for the entire facility to be operating for a lot of hours. You'll not notice anything even in the event there's an outage, due to the fact that our backup units can power all the devices and we will not have to limit the total number of working hosting servers or the network equipment that manages the traffic to your sites.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The semi-dedicated server
accounts that we offer are created within a state-of-the-art data center in the town center of Chicago and its electric power backup system is among the reasons why we are able to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the servers which are part of our innovative web hosting platform and the network that deals with all of the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS system is attached to each web server to keep it online until numerous generators kick in. The latter are powerful enough to offer electric power for the whole data center for a long time with no need to reduce the power consumption or the overall performance of any server or network device, so even when there is an outage, all of the Internet sites hosted on our platform shall still be accessible without any disruptions and will operate at top speed.
