The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 means for keeping a web server working if there are issues with the primary source - an interruption or unreliable current that can't keep the hosting server working correctly, for instance. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, although it is sometimes called Uninterruptible Power Source also. The UPS is, basically, a powerful battery which is connected to the server and to the electricity network consistently, so in the event of any disruption, it is already functioning, which allows the server to continue running without losing any information. The diesel generator is an engine which can power up the entire data center. It does take some time to begin working and it is the UPS that provides that time. These two power solutions are a requirement for any facility or service provider that wants to avoid data loss and hardware damage caused by an unexpected power problem.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Web Hosting

The 99.9% network and hosting server uptime guarantee that we offer you is, in part, a result of the electrical power backup setup which we have in every of the 3 data centers where we provide web hosting packages - in Chicago (USA), in London (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you purchase a new account to develop or move your websites, it'll be created on an innovative cloud platform which consists of several clusters controlling your content. Every single hosting server within the specific cluster features its own potent enterprise-class UPS to keep it working no matter what, until a number of electrical power generators boot up and supply the required power for the whole facility to remain working for several hours. You'll not notice anything even in case there's a disruption, because our backup units can power all the devices and we will not need to limit the number of working servers or the network equipment that handles the traffic to your websites.

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

The semi-dedicated server accounts we provide you with are created inside a state-of-the-art data center in the downtown area of Chicago and its electric power backup system is among the reasons why we can afford to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the servers which are part of our highly developed website hosting platform and the network that addresses all the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS unit is connected to every single server to keep it online until numerous generators kick in. The latter are potent enough to deliver electrical power for the whole facility for many hours without the need to restrict the power consumption or the efficiency of any web server or network device, so even when there is an outage, all of the websites hosted on our platform shall still be available with no disruptions and will operate at top speed.
