The UPS and the diesel generator are two means for keeping a web server functioning if there are issues with the main source - an interruption or unreliable 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 as well. The UPS is, essentially, an efficient battery which is attached to the web server and to the electricity network at all times, so if there is any interruption, it is already operating, which enables the web server to keep on doing the job without losing any info. 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 which provides that time. These 2 power solutions are absolutely essential for any facility or provider that wants to prevent data loss and hardware damage as a result of an unexpected electrical power problem.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Shared Hosting
The 99.9% network and hosting server uptime warranty which we provide you with is, in part, a result of the electric power backup setup which we have in every of the 3 data centers where we offer shared hosting
packages - in Chicago (USA), in London (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you purchase a new account to develop or move your websites, it will be created on a progressive cloud platform that consists of a number of clusters dealing with your content. Each and every web server inside the selected cluster features its own efficient enterprise-class UPS to keep it up and running no matter what, until a number of power generators boot up and give the required power for the whole facility to stay working for a lot of hours. You won't notice anything even when there's an interruption, due to the fact that our backup units will be able to power each of the devices and we shall not have to reduce the number of working hosting servers or the network equipment which addresses the traffic to your websites.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers
The semi-dedicated server
accounts that we provide you with are created inside a state-of-the-art data center in the downtown area of Chicago and its electrical power backup system is amongst the reasons why we are able to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the machines that are part of our innovative web hosting platform and the network which addresses all of the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS device is attached to every single server to keep it online until a variety of generators kick in. The latter are powerful enough to supply electric power for the whole center for a long time without having to minimize the power consumption or the efficiency of any web server or network device, so even when there is a disruption, all the websites hosted on our platform will still be available without disturbances and will perform at top speed.
