UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems that are kept by hosting providers within their data centers in case there are interruptions in the main power supply or the current is shaky and unable to sustain the appropriate functioning of the servers located inside the facility. UPS stands for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's an effective battery which works non-stop. It's connected to both the electrical power network and the servers at all times, so if the power stops, the UPS is already working, which prevents the servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is literally an engine that can supply the needed power to keep the servers functioning for a longer period of time. In case there is an outage, the UPS gives the needed time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the primary source is restored.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Hosting
If you host your websites within a hosting account with us, you shall be able to forget about problems caused by electrical power outages, due to the fact that, in contrast to many other providers, we don't keep multiple web servers attached to only one UPS. Alternatively, every server which is part of our avant-garde cloud platform comes with its own UPS device which will keep it working for a long time. Also, our data centers in the USA, in the United Kingdom and in Australia have a number of generators which boot up for minutes and which can easily power all the hosting servers for an extensive period of time. In this way, the overall performance of your sites or their loading speed will not be affected, so you are able to enjoy an uninterrupted high-quality service constantly.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you buy a semi-dedicated server account from our company, it'll be created on a cutting-edge hosting platform in a data center with an incredible infrastructure. The Chicago-based facility uses a separate UPS for each web server or network switch located there to make certain that the correct functioning of any piece of equipment will not be disrupted until highly effective generators start supplying the needed electric power. The latter will power the entire data center for quite a long time without having to shut down any machines, so all of the websites hosted on our hosting servers shall continue to function at max speed and without any effect on their functionality. These electric power backup options enable us to guarantee that any outage will never be a reason for your Internet sites to go offline or to have lowered functionality.
