UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. It is a battery which is used to power a personal computer or a web server in order to avoid the loss of data in case the main power source fails for reasons unknown or becomes unsafe. A diesel generator practically self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are used as a backup in data centers to back up the main power source and to guarantee the consistent running of all of the servers located there. Because the UPS runs constantly, it offers the desired power for the web servers to remain up and running until the generator starts and takes over. Using this type of a backup is critical for any data center or provider that wants to keep their hardware and info intact in the case of a power surge or outage, since it gives them lots of time to react until the issue is resolved and the main power supply is restored.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Cloud Hosting

The 99.9% network and web server uptime guarantee which we provide you with is, somewhat, a result of the electric power backup setup which we have in every of the three data centers where we offer cloud hosting plans - in Chicago (USA), in London (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you obtain a new account to build or move your Internet sites, it will be created on a modern cloud platform which consists of numerous clusters taking care of your content. Every single server within the specific cluster offers its own efficient enterprise-class UPS to keep it working no matter what, until a lot of power generators boot up and provide the required power for the whole facility to remain functional for many hours. You will not notice anything even in case there's an interruption, due to the fact that our backup units could power all the devices and we will not have to limit the total number of working web servers or the network equipment that addresses the traffic to your sites.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers

The semi-dedicated server accounts we provide are created in a state-of-the-art data center in the town center of Chicago and its power backup system is among the reasons why we are able to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the web servers which are part of our sophisticated hosting platform and the network that deals with all of the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS device is attached to every hosting server to keep it online until several generators kick in. The latter are powerful enough to offer electricity for the whole data center for several hours with no need to restrict the power consumption or the overall performance of any hosting server or network device, so even if there is an interruption, all of the websites hosted on our platform will still be accessible with no interruptions and will operate at top speed.
