UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator - what is their job and why are they available in data centers everywhere around the world?
UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems which are kept by website hosting companies in their data centers in the event that there are interruptions in the primary power supply or the current is unstable and unable to support the proper running of the servers based in the facility. UPS refers to Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is a highly effective battery that works non-stop. It is connected to both the electric power network and the web servers constantly, so if the power stops, the UPS is already up and running, which helps prevent the servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is an engine which can supply the needed electric power to keep the machines operational for a longer period of time. In the case of an outage, the UPS provides the needed time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the primary power source is restored.

If you host your Internet sites within a shared hosting
account with our company, you shall be able to forget about issues caused by power outages, simply because, unlike all kinds of other providers, we do not keep multiple servers attached to one UPS. Instead, every single web server which is part of our avant-garde cloud platform comes with its own UPS unit that shall be able to keep it functioning for hours. Additionally, our data centers in the United States, in the United Kingdom and in Australia have multiple generators that boot up for minutes and that can power all the servers for an extensive amount of time. That way, the overall performance of your websites or their loading speed shall not be affected, so you can enjoy an uninterrupted high-quality hosting service constantly.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you purchase a semi-dedicated server
account from our company, it'll be set up on a cutting-edge hosting platform inside a data center with an outstanding infrastructure. The Chicago-based facility uses an individual UPS for every single hosting server or network switch located there to make sure that the proper operation of any unit won't be disrupted until efficient generators start producing the necessary electrical power. The latter can easily power the whole center for quite a while without the need to shut down any devices, so all the Internet sites hosted on our hosting servers will continue to function at max speed and without any effect on their capabilities. These power backup options enable us to ensure that any outage will never be a reason for your Internet sites to go offline or to have limited functionality.
