UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. It is a battery used to power some type of computer or a hosting server to avoid the loss of data if the main power supply fails for some reason or becomes unsafe. A diesel generator pretty much self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are widely-used as a backup in data centers to back up the power and to ensure the constant operation of all the web servers located there. Because the UPS runs all the time, it provides the desired power for the machines to remain up and running until the generator starts and takes over. Using this sort of a backup is vital for any data center or hosting company that wants to keep their hardware and information intact in the case of a power surge or outage, as it offers them plenty of time to react until the problem is resolved and the main power supply is restored.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Web Hosting

The 99.9% network and web server uptime guarantee that we offer is, somewhat, a result of the electrical power backup setup that we have in every of the 3 data centers in which we offer web hosting plans - in Chicago (USA), in London (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you obtain a new account to build or move your websites, it shall be set up on a progressive cloud platform that consists of several clusters taking care of your content. Each and every web server within the given cluster has its own powerful enterprise-class UPS to keep it up and running no matter what, until a lot of electric power generators boot up and provide the required power for the whole data center to stay operating for a lot of hours. You'll not notice anything even in the event there's a disruption, due to the fact that our backup units could power each of the devices and we won't need to restrict the total number of working servers or the network equipment that handles the traffic to your sites.

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

The semi-dedicated server accounts we provide are created inside a state-of-the-art data center in the town center 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 machines which are part of our advanced hosting platform and the network which addresses all of the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS device is attached to every web server to keep it online until a variety of generators kick in. The latter are effective enough to supply electricity for the whole facility for many hours without the need to restrict the power consumption or the productivity of any web server or network device, so even if there is a disruption, all of the sites hosted on our platform shall still be available without any disruptions and will operate at top speed.
