UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
Learn more details on UPSs & diesel backup generators and learn why each and every hosting data center includes them.
UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems that are kept by website hosting service providers inside their data centers in case there are interruptions in the primary power source or the current is unsound and unable to sustain the appropriate operation of the web servers based inside the facility. UPS stands for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is a highly effective battery which works non-stop. It is connected to both the power network and the servers all of the time, so when the power stops, the UPS is already operational, which helps prevent the web servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is definitely an engine which can deliver the required electrical power to keep the web servers up and running for a longer period of time. If there is an outage, the UPS gives the required time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the primary source is restored.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Website Hosting
We offer you Linux website hosting
in 3 of the major data centers around the world. They're based in the USA, in the UK and in Australia. As data integrity and server uptime are our priorities, the 3 facilities have a few backup systems against power outages. A number of diesel generators can keep the web servers functional for hours or even for a few days and every machine which is part of our cutting-edge cloud platform features its own enterprise-class UPS to keep it operational until the generators begin working. This setup is one of the reasons why we are able to promise a 99.9% server and network uptime, so if you host your Internet sites within a shared account with us, you will take full advantage of a fast and extraordinary service and never having to worry about any disturbances due to electric power outages.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you buy a semi-dedicated server
account from us, it will be set up on a cutting-edge hosting platform inside a data center with a fantastic infrastructure. The Chicago-based facility uses an independent UPS for every single hosting server or network switch located there to make certain that the proper functioning of any device won't be disrupted until efficient generators start producing the needed electrical power. The latter can power the whole facility for quite a long time without having to shut down any equipment, so each of the websites hosted on our machines will continue to function at optimum speed and with zero effect on their functionality. These power backup options enable us to guarantee that a potential outage will never be a reason for your websites to go offline or to have minimized functionality.
