The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 means for keeping a web server working if there are troubles with the main source - a disruption or unstable current which cannot keep the machine functional, for instance. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, even though it can often be referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source as well. The UPS is, essentially, an efficient battery that is attached to the web server and to the power network all the time, so in case of any disruption, it is already functioning, that permits the web server to carry on running without losing any information. The diesel generator is an engine that will power up an entire data center. It needs some time to start working and it's the UPS which gives it that time. These two power solutions are fundamental for any facility or provider that wants to stop data loss and hardware damage resulting from an unexpected electrical power problem.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Shared Website Hosting
If you host your sites within a shared website hosting
account with us, you'll be able to forget about complications caused by power outages, since, in contrast to various other providers, we do not keep multiple hosting servers attached to one UPS. Rather, each machine that is part of our avant-garde cloud platform has its own UPS device which can keep it working for a long time. In addition, our data centers in the USA, in the UK and in Australia have numerous generators which boot up for minutes and which can power all of the hosting servers for an extensive stretch of time. This way, the overall performance of your websites or their loading speed will not be affected, so you can enjoy an uninterrupted high-quality web hosting service at all times.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The semi-dedicated server
accounts we provide you with are created inside a state-of-the-art data center in the town center of Chicago and its power backup system is among the reasons why we can afford to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the hosting servers that are part of our advanced hosting platform and the network that deals with all of the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS system is connected to every hosting server to keep it online until a number of generators kick in. The latter are potent enough to provide electric power for the entire center for a long time with no need to minimize the power consumption or the efficiency 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 without disruptions and will operate at top speed.
