The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 means for keeping a web server functional in case there are difficulties with the main source - an outage or shaky current that cannot keep the server functional, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, even though it is frequently called Uninterruptible Power Source too. The UPS is, essentially, an effective battery that is connected to the hosting server and to the power network at all times, so in the event of any interruption, it's already operating, which enables the hosting server to carry on running without losing any data. The diesel generator is an engine that can power up the whole data center. It does take some time to begin working and it's the UPS which provides that time. These 2 power solutions are a necessity for any facility or service provider that wants to stop information loss and hardware damage resulting from an unexpected power issue.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Shared Website Hosting

The 99.9% network and server uptime warranty that we offer you is, partly, a result of the power backup setup we have in each of the 3 data centers where we offer shared website hosting packages - in Chicago (USA), in Coventry (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you acquire a new account to build or move your websites, it'll be set up on an innovative cloud platform which consists of a number of clusters controlling your content. Each and every web server in the specific cluster offers its own potent enterprise-class UPS to keep it functioning no matter what, until a number of electric power generators boot up and provide the required power for the whole facility to remain operational for many hours. You won't notice anything even when there is an outage, as our backup units can easily power all the devices and we will not have to reduce the quantity of working servers or the network equipment which deals with the traffic to your sites.

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 electric power backup system is amongst the reasons why we can afford to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the machines that are part of our highly developed hosting platform and the network which handles all the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS device is connected to each server to keep it online until numerous generators kick in. The latter are powerful enough to provide electrical power for the whole data center for a long time with no need to minimize the power consumption or the overall performance of any server or network device, so even in the event that there is a blackout, all of the Internet sites hosted on our platform shall still be accessible without disruptions and will work at top speed.
