The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 instruments for keeping a server operational in case there are troubles with the main power source - an outage or unreliable current that cannot keep the web server working correctly, for instance. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, even though it is frequently called Uninterruptible Power Source as well. The UPS is, essentially, an efficient battery that is connected to the hosting server and to the power network consistently, so in case of any interruption, it is already working, that permits the server to keep on operating without losing any info. The diesel generator is an engine that will power up a whole data center. It does take some time to start working and it's the UPS that gives it this time. These two power solutions are an absolute necessity for any facility or service provider that wants to avoid information loss and hardware damage resulting from an unexpected power problem.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Cloud Website Hosting
The 99.9% network and server uptime guarantee which we provide is, in part, a result of the electric power backup setup we have in every of the three data centers where we provide cloud website hosting
plans - in Chicago (USA), in London (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you acquire a new account to develop or move your sites, it shall be created on a cutting-edge cloud platform that consists of numerous clusters controlling your content. Every single web server within the particular cluster offers its own powerful enterprise-class UPS to keep it operational no matter what, until several electric power generators boot up and supply the required power for the whole facility to be working for a lot of hours. You'll not notice anything even when there's an interruption, since our backup units can power all the devices and we shall not have to reduce the total number of working hosting servers or the network equipment which handles the traffic to your Internet sites.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers
The semi-dedicated server
accounts that we offer you are created inside a state-of-the-art data center in downtown Chicago and its power backup system is among the reasons why we can afford to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the web servers that are part of our highly developed hosting platform and the network that addresses all the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS system is attached to each web server to keep it online until a variety of generators kick in. The latter are effective enough to provide electric power for the entire facility for a long time without having to minimize the power consumption or the overall performance of any server or network device, so even when there is an interruption, all the sites hosted on our platform will still be available with no disruptions and will work at top speed.
