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 primary power source or the current is unsound and unable to sustain the proper functioning of the machines situated inside the facility. UPS refers to Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is an efficient battery which works non-stop. It is connected to both the power network and the web servers constantly, so anytime the power stops, the UPS is already working, which helps prevent the servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is literally an engine that can supply the needed energy to keep the servers up and running for a longer period of time. In case there is an outage, the UPS gives the necessary time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the primary power supply is restored.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Cloud Hosting
The 99.9% network and web server uptime guarantee which we offer is, in part, a result of the electrical power backup setup which we have in every of the 3 data centers in which we offer cloud hosting packages - in Chicago (USA), in London (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you obtain a new account to create or move your Internet sites, it shall be set up on an innovative cloud platform that consists of several clusters handling your content. Every single machine in the given cluster has its own potent enterprise-class UPS to keep it functioning no matter what, until quite a few electric power generators boot up and give the necessary power for the whole facility to stay operational for many hours. You won't notice anything even when there's a disruption, due to the fact that our backup units could power all the devices and we shall not need to restrict the total number of working hosting servers or the network equipment that addresses 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'll be set up on a cutting-edge hosting platform within a data center with a superb 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 unit shall not be disrupted until powerful generators start supplying the necessary electric power. The latter can power the whole facility for quite a long time with no need to shut down any equipment, so each of the sites hosted on our web servers shall continue to work at max speed and with zero effect on their performance. These electrical power backup options allow us to ensure that any outage will never be a reason for your websites to go offline or to have reduced functionality.
