UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems which are kept by website hosting providers in their data centers in case there are interruptions in the primary power source or the current is shaky and unable to support the proper operation of the machines situated in the facility. UPS is short for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is a highly effective battery that works non-stop. It is connected to both the power network and the web servers consistently, so when the power stops, the UPS is already working, which helps prevent the web servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is literally an engine that can provide you with the necessary electrical power to keep the machines operational for a longer period of time. In case there is an outage, the UPS provides the needed time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the primary power supply is restored.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Cloud Website Hosting

The 99.9% network and web server uptime guarantee that we offer you is, partly, a result of the electrical power backup setup we have in each of the 3 data centers where we offer cloud website hosting plans - in Chicago (USA), in Coventry (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you obtain a new account to develop or move your websites, it shall be created on an innovative cloud platform that consists of numerous clusters handling your content. Every single hosting server within the particular cluster offers its own highly effective enterprise-class UPS to keep it operational no matter what, until several power generators boot up and give the required power for the whole data center to be operational for a lot of hours. You won't notice anything even in the event there's a disruption, since our backup units can easily power all the devices and we will not have to reduce the number of working servers or the network equipment which manages the traffic to your Internet sites.

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 downtown Chicago and its electrical power backup system is among the reasons why we can afford to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the hosting servers which are part of our advanced hosting platform and the network which manages all of the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS unit is attached to every machine to keep it online until several generators kick in. The latter are efficient enough to offer electricity for the whole data center for a long time without the need to limit the power consumption or the functionality of any web server or network device, so even when there is a blackout, all the Internet sites hosted on our platform shall still be accessible without disruptions and will perform at top speed.
