UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. It's a battery that is used to power a personal computer or a web server to avoid the loss of information when the main power source fails for reasons unknown or becomes unsafe. A diesel generator practically self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are used as a backup in data centers to back up the power and to guarantee the constant functioning of all the machines located there. Since the UPS runs constantly, it provides the required power for the servers to remain functioning until the generator starts and takes over. Using this kind of a backup is crucial for any data center or provider that wants to keep their hardware and information intact in case there is a power surge or outage, as it provides them with lots of time to react until the issue is resolved and the primary power supply is restored.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Shared Web Hosting
If you host your websites in a shared web hosting account with us, you'll be able to forget about complications caused by electric power failures, because, in contrast to various other providers, we don't keep numerous servers attached to one UPS. Rather, each web server which is part of our avant-garde cloud platform features its own UPS device that can easily keep it working for hours. Moreover, our data centers in the USA, in the United Kingdom and in Australia have many different generators which boot up for minutes and which can easily power all the web servers for an extensive time period. In this way, the overall performance of your sites or their loading speed will not be affected, so you'll be able to enjoy an uninterrupted high-quality service all of the time.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers
The semi-dedicated server accounts we provide you with are created inside a state-of-the-art data center in the downtown area of Chicago and its electric power backup system is one of the reasons why we can afford to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the web servers which are part of our highly developed website hosting platform and the network that deals with all of the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS unit is attached to every server to keep it online until several generators kick in. The latter are effective enough to provide electrical power for the whole data center for many hours without the need to limit the power consumption or the efficiency of any hosting server or network device, so even if there is an outage, all of the Internet sites hosted on our platform will still be available without disturbances and will work at top speed.
