UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems which are kept by hosting companies within their data centers in case there are interruptions in the main power supply or the current is shaky and unable to sustain the correct running of the servers located in the facility. UPS refers to Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is an effective battery that works non-stop. It's connected to both the power network and the servers consistently, so if the power stops, the UPS is already working, which prevents the web servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is certainly an engine which can give you the required energy to keep the web servers operational for a longer period of time. If there is an outage, the UPS provides the required time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the main power supply is restored.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Shared Hosting
We offer Linux shared service in three of the biggest data centers globally. They're based in the United States, in the United kingdom and in Australia. Due to the fact that data safety and web server uptime are our priorities, all three facilities have a few backup systems against electric power outages. A number of diesel generators can keep the hosting servers working for hours or even for a couple of days and each machine which is part of our cutting-edge cloud platform includes its own enterprise-class UPS to keep it functional until the generators start working. This setup is among the reasons why we are able to ensure a 99.9% server and network uptime, so if you host your websites within a shared account with our company, you shall take advantage of a fast and outstanding service and never having to worry about any interruptions due to 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 within a data center with a fantastic infrastructure. The Chicago-based data center uses an individual UPS for every web server or network switch located there to make certain that the proper operation of any device will not be interrupted until efficient generators start producing the necessary electricity. The latter will power the whole center for quite a while without having to shut down any machines, so all of the sites hosted on our machines shall continue to work at top speed and with zero effect on their capabilities. These electric power backup options permit us to ensure that a possible outage will never be a reason for your Internet sites to go offline or to have minimized functionality.
