UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems which are kept by hosting companies in their data centers in case there are interruptions in the primary power supply or the current is unstable and unable to maintain the proper operation of the web servers located in the facility. UPS is short for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is a powerful battery which works non-stop. It is connected to both the electric power network and the web servers all of the time, so in case the power stops, the UPS is already up and running, which prevents the servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is an engine that can deliver the needed energy to keep the machines functioning for a longer period of time. In the event of an outage, the UPS gives the needed time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the main power source is restored.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Website Hosting

If you host your sites inside a website hosting account with us, you will be able to forget about problems caused by electric power failures, due to the fact that, unlike all kinds of other providers, we don't keep multiple servers attached to just one UPS. Alternatively, each web server that is part of our avant-garde cloud platform has its own UPS unit which can keep it functioning for hours on end. Furthermore, our data centers in the USA, in the United Kingdom and in Australia have a number of generators that boot up for minutes and that are able to power all of the web servers for an extensive period of time. This way, the performance of your Internet sites or their loading speed shall not be affected, so you are able to enjoy an uninterrupted high-quality web hosting service all the time.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers

The semi-dedicated server accounts which we offer are created in a state-of-the-art data center in the downtown area of Chicago and its electrical power backup system is among the reasons why we can afford to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the hosting servers which are part of our advanced hosting platform and the network which deals with all the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS unit is attached to every single hosting server to keep it online until a number of generators kick in. The latter are effective enough to deliver electricity for the whole center for a long time without the need to minimize the power consumption or the functionality of any hosting server or network device, so even if there is a disruption, all the Internet sites hosted on our platform will still be accessible without any disturbances and will work at top speed.
