The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 means for keeping a server working in case there are difficulties with the primary power supply - a disruption or unreliable current that cannot keep the web server functional, for instance. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, though it is oftentimes called Uninterruptible Power Source as well. The UPS is, in simple terms, a powerful battery that's attached to the hosting server and to the power network all the time, so in the event of any disruption, it's already functioning, which enables the server to carry on running without losing any info. The diesel generator is an engine which will power up the entire data center. It does take some time to start working and it is the UPS that gives it that time. These two power solutions are fundamental for any facility or hosting company that wants to stop data loss and hardware damage caused by an unexpected power issue.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Hosting
The 99.9% network and hosting server uptime guarantee which we provide is, to some extent, a result of the electrical power backup setup which we have in every of the three data centers where we provide hosting plans - in Chicago (USA), in London (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you get a new account to create or move your Internet sites, it will be created on a cutting-edge cloud platform which consists of many clusters handling your content. Each and every hosting server within the specific cluster offers its own effective enterprise-class UPS to keep it up and running no matter what, until a number of electric power generators boot up and provide the required power for the whole facility to be functional for many hours. You will not notice anything even in case there is a disruption, since our backup units can power all of the devices and we shall not have to limit the total number of working servers or the network equipment that manages the traffic to your Internet sites.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you buy a semi-dedicated server account from our company, it shall be set up on a cutting-edge hosting platform inside a data center with an outstanding infrastructure. The Chicago-based data center uses an independent UPS for every single server or network switch located there to make certain that the ideal functioning of any device shall not be disrupted until powerful generators start providing the required electrical power. The latter will be able to power the whole data center for quite a long time without having to shut down any machines, so all the websites hosted on our hosting servers shall continue to function at optimum speed and with no effect on their performance. These electric power backup options permit us to ensure that any outage will never be a reason for your websites to go offline or to have limited functionality.
