The UPS and the diesel generator are two devices for keeping a server operational in case there are problems with the main power supply - a disruption or unreliable current that can't keep the server working properly, for instance. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, though it is oftentimes referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source as well. The UPS is, essentially, a powerful battery that's connected to the hosting server and to the electricity network all of the time, so in case of any blackout, it is already functioning, which allows the hosting server to carry on doing the job without losing any data. The diesel generator is an engine which will power up a whole data center. It needs some time to begin working and it is the UPS which gives it that time. Those two power solutions are an absolute necessity for any facility or provider that wants to prevent information loss and hardware damage caused by an unexpected electric power problem.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Cloud Hosting

The 99.9% network and hosting server uptime warranty that we offer you is, partly, a result of the electrical power backup setup that we have in each of the three data centers in which we provide cloud hosting packages - in Chicago (USA), in Coventry (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you get a new account to create or move your websites, it shall be created on a cutting-edge cloud platform that consists of a number of clusters handling your content. Every server within the selected cluster provides its own efficient enterprise-class UPS to keep it up and running no matter what, until several power generators boot up and supply the necessary power for the whole data center to stay working for many hours. You'll not notice anything even when there is an outage, because our backup units can power each of the devices and we will not have to restrict the amount 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 we provide you with are created within a state-of-the-art data center in the downtown area of Chicago and its electric power backup system is among the reasons why we are able to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the hosting servers that are part of our advanced website hosting platform and the network which addresses all of the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS device is connected to each web server to keep it online until a variety of generators kick in. The latter are potent enough to supply electric power for the entire facility for a long time with no need to reduce the power consumption or the overall performance of any server or network device, so even when there is a disruption, all the websites hosted on our platform shall still be accessible with no disturbances and will operate at top speed.
