UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems that are kept by web hosting service providers inside their data centers in the event there are interruptions in the main power supply or the current is unsound and unable to support the proper operation of the machines based inside the facility. UPS is short for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's an efficient battery that works non-stop. It is connected to both the electric power network and the servers consistently, so when the power stops, the UPS is already up and running, which prevents the machines 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 case of an outage, the UPS gives the necessary time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the main power source is restored.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Web Hosting
We offer web hosting service in three of the largest data centers globally. They are located in the U.S., in the United kingdom and in Australia. Considering that data integrity and hosting server uptime are our priorities, all three facilities have a number of backup systems against power outages. A few diesel generators can keep the web servers working for hours or even for a few days and each machine that's part of our cutting-edge cloud platform includes its own enterprise-class UPS to keep it working until the generators kick in. This setup is one of the reasons why we are able to guarantee a 99.9% web server and network uptime, so if you host your sites inside a shared account with our company, you will take advantage of a fast and flawless service without worrying about any interruptions due to electric power outages.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers
The semi-dedicated server accounts we offer are created within a state-of-the-art data center in the town center of Chicago and its electric power backup system is one of the reasons why we are able to afford to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the servers which are part of our sophisticated web hosting platform and the network which manages all of the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS system is attached to every single server to keep it online until a variety of generators kick in. The latter are powerful enough to offer electricity for the entire center for several hours without the need to restrict the power consumption or the productivity of any server or network device, so even in the event that there is an outage, all the sites hosted on our platform will still be available without disruptions and will work at top speed.
