The UPS and the diesel generator are two instruments for keeping a server functional if there are difficulties with the primary power source - a disruption or unreliable current that cannot keep the web server functioning properly, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, even though it is oftentimes called Uninterruptible Power Source too. The UPS is, basically, a highly effective battery that's connected to the machine and to the power network consistently, so if there is any disturbance, it's already working, that permits the hosting server to continue working without losing any data. The diesel generator is an engine that will power up a whole data center. It does take some time to begin working and it is the UPS that provides that time. Those 2 power solutions are a requirement for any facility or hosting company that wants to prevent information loss and hardware damage as a consequence of an unexpected electrical power issue.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Shared Web Hosting

If you host your websites in a shared web hosting account with us, you can forget about problems caused by electrical power blackouts, since, different from various other providers, we don't keep several servers attached to just one UPS. Alternatively, each individual web server that is part of our avant-garde cloud platform features its own UPS device that can keep it operational for many hours. Additionally, our data centers in the United States, in the UK and in Australia have a number of generators which boot up for minutes and that will power all the hosting servers for an extensive stretch of time. That way, the features of your Internet sites or their loading speed will not be affected, so you'll be able to enjoy an uninterrupted high-quality web hosting service all the time.

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

The semi-dedicated server accounts that we provide you with are created inside a state-of-the-art data center in the town center of Chicago and its electric power backup system is one of the reasons why we can afford to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the servers which are part of our sophisticated hosting platform and the network that manages all the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS unit is connected to each and every web server to keep it online until a number of generators kick in. The latter are efficient enough to provide electric power for the whole facility for several hours without the need to limit the power consumption or the overall performance of any web server or network device, so even in case there is a disruption, all of the websites hosted on our platform will still be available without disruptions and will function at top speed.
