UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems which are kept by website hosting providers within their data centers in the event that there are interruptions in the primary power supply or the current is unstable and unable to sustain the proper running of the machines located inside the facility. UPS stands for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's an effective battery which works non-stop. It's connected to both the power network and the servers constantly, so if the power stops, the UPS is already functioning, which prevents the servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is an engine which can provide the needed electrical power to keep the servers up and running for a longer period of time. In the event of 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 Website Hosting

The 99.9% network and server uptime guarantee that we provide you with is, somewhat, a result of the electric power backup setup which we have in every of the 3 data centers in which we offer shared website hosting packages - in Chicago (USA), in Coventry (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you purchase a new account to develop or move your sites, it will be created on a modern cloud platform that consists of several clusters dealing with your content. Each web server within the selected cluster features its own potent enterprise-class UPS to keep it functioning no matter what, until several electrical power generators boot up and give the required power for the entire data center to stay operational for several hours. You won't notice anything even when there's an interruption, due to the fact that our backup units will be able to power each of the devices and we will not have to limit the quantity of working hosting servers or the network equipment that manages the traffic to your websites.

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

The semi-dedicated server accounts we offer are created inside a state-of-the-art data center in downtown Chicago and its power backup system is amongst the reasons why we can afford to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the machines which are part of our highly developed website hosting platform and the network which handles all the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS device is attached to each server to keep it online until a variety of generators kick in. The latter are potent enough to supply electric power for the entire data center for a long time without having to restrict the power consumption or the overall performance of any hosting server or network device, so even in the event that there is an outage, all the Internet sites hosted on our platform shall still be accessible without any interruptions and will operate at top speed.
