The UPS and the diesel generator are two means for keeping a web server functioning in case there are problems with the primary power supply - an outage or shaky current that cannot keep the machine functioning properly, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, although it is sometimes called Uninterruptible Power Source also. The UPS is, in essence, a highly effective battery that is attached to the hosting server and to the electricity network all the time, so if there is any interruption, it is already operating, which allows the web server to keep on doing the job without losing any information. The diesel generator is an engine that will power up the whole data center. It does take some time to start working and it's the UPS that provides that time. These two power solutions are an absolute necessity for any facility or provider that wants to stop information loss and hardware damage as a result of an unexpected power issue.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Cloud Hosting

If you host your websites within a cloud hosting account with us, you shall be able to forget about troubles caused by power outages, due to the fact that, unlike all kinds of other providers, we do not keep many web servers attached to a single UPS. Rather, each and every hosting server that is part of our avant-garde cloud platform has its own UPS device that will be able to keep it up and running for hours. Also, our data centers in the United States, in the UK and in Australia have multiple generators that boot up for minutes and that are able to power all the servers for an extensive amount of time. In this way, the functionality of your sites or their loading speed will not 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 Servers

The semi-dedicated server accounts which we provide you with 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 are able to afford to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the hosting servers which are part of our highly developed web hosting platform and the network which handles all of the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS system is attached to each server to keep it online until several generators kick in. The latter are efficient enough to offer electrical power for the entire facility for a long time without the need to restrict the power consumption or the functionality of any hosting server or network device, so even if there is a blackout, all the Internet sites hosted on our platform will still be accessible with no disturbances and will operate at top speed.
