UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems that are kept by web hosting providers within their data centers in the event there are interruptions in the primary power supply or the current is unsound and unable to maintain the correct functioning of the machines situated within the facility. UPS stands for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is an effective battery that works non-stop. It's connected to both the electrical power network and the servers at all times, so in case the power stops, the UPS is already working, which helps prevent the machines from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is an engine that can deliver the needed energy to keep the servers operational for a longer period of time. In case of an outage, the UPS provides the needed time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the main source is restored.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Cloud Web Hosting
If you host your Internet sites inside a cloud web hosting account with us, you can forget about complications caused by power outages, because, unlike many other providers, we don't keep multiple hosting servers attached to a single UPS. Rather, every single web server that is part of our avant-garde cloud platform has its own UPS device which shall be able to keep it working for a long time. Additionally, our data centers in the USA, in the United Kingdom and in Australia have many different generators that boot up for minutes and which will be able to power each of the hosting servers for an extensive time period. In this way, the features of your websites or their loading speed won't be affected, so you are able to enjoy an uninterrupted high-quality web hosting service all of the time.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you purchase a semi-dedicated server account from us, it'll be set up on a cutting-edge hosting platform inside a data center with a fantastic infrastructure. The Chicago-based center uses a separate UPS for each hosting server or network switch located there to make sure that the proper operation of any device won't be interrupted until effective generators start providing the needed electric power. The latter will power the entire data center for quite a while without the need to turn off any equipment, so all the Internet sites hosted on our servers shall continue to work at maximum speed and with zero effect on their efficiency. These electric power backup options permit us to ensure that a possible outage will never be a reason for your websites to go offline or to have reduced functionality.
