UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. This is a battery used to power a PC or a hosting server to avoid the loss of information in case the main power source fails for reasons unknown or becomes unsafe. A diesel generator basically self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are used as a backup in data centers to back up the main power source and to guarantee the uninterrupted operation of all of the machines located there. Since the UPS works at all times, it provides the necessary power for the machines to remain functioning until the generator starts and takes over. Using this kind of a backup is vital for any data center or provider that wants to keep their hardware and data intact in case there is a power surge or outage, because it provides them with plenty of time to react until the issue is resolved and the main power supply is restored.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Website Hosting
The 99.9% network and server uptime warranty which we offer is, to some extent, a result of the electrical power backup setup that we have in each of the three data centers in which we offer website hosting
plans - in Chicago (USA), in Coventry (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you acquire a new account to build or move your Internet sites, it'll be created on a cutting-edge cloud platform that consists of many clusters handling your content. Every single server in the specific cluster features its own efficient enterprise-class UPS to keep it up and running no matter what, until a lot of electric power generators boot up and supply the necessary power for the whole facility to remain operating for many hours. You will not notice anything even in case there is an interruption, since our backup units will be able to power each of the devices and we will not need to restrict the total number of working hosting servers or the network equipment which deals with the traffic to your Internet sites.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The semi-dedicated server
accounts that we offer you are created in a state-of-the-art data center in the town center of Chicago and its power backup system is amongst the reasons why we can afford to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the servers which are part of our advanced web hosting platform and the network which addresses all of the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS system is connected to each web server to keep it online until a number of generators kick in. The latter are potent enough to provide electricity for the whole center for many hours with no need to reduce the power consumption or the functionality of any web server or network device, so even in case there is an interruption, all of the Internet sites hosted on our platform will still be accessible without disturbances and will work at top speed.
