The UPS and the diesel generator are two instruments for keeping a web server operational if there are problems with the main source - an interruption or unstable current that cannot keep the server working properly, for instance. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, though it is sometimes referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source too. The UPS is, basically, a powerful battery which is attached to the machine and to the electricity network at all times, so in case there is any disturbance, it is already working, which allows the hosting server to continue working without losing any information. The diesel generator is an engine which will power up a whole data center. It needs some time to start working and it's the UPS that provides that time. Those 2 power solutions are fundamental for any facility or service provider that wants to avoid info loss and hardware damage resulting from an unexpected electric power issue.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Cloud Hosting
The 99.9% network and server uptime warranty that we provide you with is, partly, a result of the electrical power backup setup which we have in every of the three data centers where we provide cloud hosting
packages - in Chicago (USA), in London (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you purchase a new account to build or move your sites, it will be set up on a cutting-edge cloud platform which consists of many clusters handling your content. Every single web server within the selected cluster provides 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 required power for the whole facility to remain operational for many hours. You will not notice anything even in the event there's an interruption, because our backup units will be able to power all the devices and we shall not need to restrict the amount of working servers or the network equipment which deals with the traffic to your Internet sites.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers
The semi-dedicated server
accounts we offer you are created inside a state-of-the-art data center in the downtown area of Chicago and its power backup system is among the reasons why we are able to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the servers which are part of our sophisticated hosting platform and the network which handles all of the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS unit is connected to every single web server to keep it online until a variety of generators kick in. The latter are powerful enough to supply electric power for the entire facility for a long time with no need to restrict the power consumption or the overall performance of any hosting server or network device, so even in case there is an interruption, all the sites hosted on our platform will still be accessible with no disruptions and will perform at top speed.
