UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems that are kept by web hosting companies in their data centers in the event that there are interruptions in the primary power supply or the current is shaky and unable to sustain the correct functioning of the web servers located inside 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 electric power network and the web servers all of the time, so when the power stops, the UPS is already operational, which helps prevent the servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is certainly an engine which can give you the needed electric power to keep the servers functioning for a longer period of time. In case of 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 Shared Web Hosting

The 99.9% network and web server uptime warranty that we offer is, partly, a result of the power backup setup which we have in each of the 3 data centers where we provide shared web hosting packages - in Chicago (USA), in Coventry (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you purchase a new account to create or move your Internet sites, it'll be set up on a progressive cloud platform which consists of many clusters dealing with your content. Each server in the specific cluster has its own efficient enterprise-class UPS to keep it functioning no matter what, until quite a few power generators boot up and give the necessary power for the entire facility to stay working for a lot of hours. You will not notice anything even when there is a disruption, as our backup units can power all the devices and we will not need to restrict the total number of working servers or the network equipment which handles the traffic to your Internet sites.

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

The semi-dedicated server accounts which we provide are created in a state-of-the-art data center in the town center of Chicago and its electric power backup system is among the reasons why we are able to afford to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the hosting servers that are part of our innovative hosting platform and the network which handles all the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS system is connected to every single hosting server to keep it online until a number of generators kick in. The latter are efficient enough to deliver electrical power for the entire facility for many hours with no need to reduce the power consumption or the efficiency of any hosting server or network device, so even in the event that there is an outage, all the websites hosted on our platform shall still be accessible without any disturbances and will function at top speed.
