UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems which are kept by website hosting providers in their data centers in the event there are interruptions in the primary power source or the current is shaky and unable to maintain the correct functioning of the web servers based in the facility. UPS stands for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is a highly effective battery that works non-stop. It is connected to both the power network and the web servers all of the time, so if the power stops, the UPS is already operational, which helps prevent the web servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is definitely an engine that can give you the needed electric power to keep the servers functioning for a longer period of time. In case of an outage, the UPS gives the needed time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the main source is restored.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Shared Hosting
We offer shared plans
in 3 of the largest data centers worldwide. They're located in the USA, in the UK and in Australia. Due to the fact that data integrity and hosting server uptime are our priorities, all three facilities have numerous backup systems against power outages. A number of diesel generators can keep the web servers functional for hours or even for a couple of days and each and every machine which is part of our cutting-edge cloud platform includes its own enterprise-class UPS to keep it functional until the generators begin working. This setup is amongst the reasons why we are able to ensure a 99.9% hosting server and network uptime, so if you host your web sites within a shared account with our company, you'll take full advantage of a fast and flawless service and never having to worry about any disturbances due to power outages.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you buy a semi-dedicated server
account from our company, it'll be set up on a cutting-edge hosting platform in a data center with a fantastic infrastructure. The Chicago-based facility uses an independent UPS for every web server or network switch located there to make sure that the correct functioning of any unit will not be disrupted until highly effective generators start supplying the needed electrical power. The latter will be able to power the whole data center for a very long time without the need to turn off any equipment, so each of the Internet sites hosted on our machines will continue to work at optimum speed and without any effect on their performance. 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.
