UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems which are kept by website hosting service providers within their data centers in the event there are interruptions in the primary power supply or the current is shaky and unable to maintain the appropriate running of the servers based inside the facility. UPS stands for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's an effective battery that works non-stop. It is connected to both the power network and the servers all of the time, so in case the power stops, the UPS is already operational, which helps prevent the machines from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is certainly an engine that can supply the required electric power to keep the servers up and running for a longer period of time. If there is an outage, the UPS provides the required time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the main source is restored.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Shared Web Hosting

The 99.9% network and hosting server uptime guarantee which we offer is, partly, a result of the electric power backup setup we have in each of the 3 data centers in which we offer shared web hosting packages - in Chicago (USA), in Coventry (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you acquire a new account to create or move your sites, it'll be set up on a modern cloud platform that consists of many clusters handling your content. Each web server within the given cluster provides its own highly effective enterprise-class UPS to keep it working no matter what, until several electrical power generators boot up and provide the required power for the entire data center to remain operational for several hours. You'll not notice anything even in case there's a disruption, as our backup units could power each of the devices and we won't need to reduce the number of working hosting servers or the network equipment that handles the traffic to your Internet sites.

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

The semi-dedicated server accounts that we offer are created within a state-of-the-art data center in the downtown area of 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 advanced web hosting platform and the network that manages all the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS device is attached to each and every machine to keep it online until a number of generators kick in. The latter are effective enough to deliver electricity for the whole data center for a long time without having to reduce the power consumption or the overall performance of any server or network device, so even if there is an interruption, all the Internet sites hosted on our platform shall still be accessible without disturbances and will operate at top speed.
