The UPS and the diesel generator are two instruments for keeping a web server functional in case there are troubles with the primary power source - an outage or shaky current that cannot keep the machine working correctly, for instance. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, though it can often be referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source also. The UPS is, in simple terms, a powerful battery that's connected to the machine and to the power network all the time, so in case there is any blackout, it is already working, which allows the web server to continue doing the job without losing any info. The diesel generator is an engine that can power up the whole data center. It does take some time to begin working and it is the UPS which provides that time. These 2 power solutions are absolutely essential for any facility or hosting company that wants to stop data loss and hardware damage resulting from an unexpected power issue.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Cloud Website Hosting
The 99.9% network and hosting server uptime guarantee which we offer is, in part, a result of the electric power backup setup that we have in each of the 3 data centers where we provide cloud website hosting plans - in Chicago (USA), in London (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you obtain a new account to develop or move your sites, it will be set up on a cutting-edge cloud platform that consists of numerous clusters dealing with your content. Every single machine inside the specific cluster provides its own powerful enterprise-class UPS to keep it working no matter what, until quite a few power generators boot up and provide the required power for the whole facility to stay working for many hours. You'll not notice anything even in the event there is a disruption, since our backup units can easily power each of the devices and we won't have to limit the number of working servers or the network equipment which addresses the traffic to your Internet sites.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you buy a semi-dedicated server account from our company, it will be created on a cutting-edge hosting platform inside a data center with an excellent infrastructure. The Chicago-based center uses an individual UPS for every single hosting server or network switch located there to make sure that the ideal operation of any device shall not be disturbed until effective generators start producing the needed electric power. The latter can easily power the whole data center for a very long time with no need to turn off any devices, so each of the sites hosted on our web servers will continue to work at max speed and with zero effect on their efficiency. These electric power backup options permit us to guarantee that any outage will never be a reason for your sites to go offline or to have lowered functionality.
