UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems that are kept by website hosting service providers inside their data centers in the event there are interruptions in the primary power supply or the current is unstable and unable to maintain the appropriate functioning of the web servers situated inside the facility. UPS refers to Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is an efficient battery that works non-stop. It's connected to both the electrical power network and the web servers consistently, so when the power stops, the UPS is already functioning, which prevents the servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is definitely an engine that can provide the needed power to keep the machines working for a longer period of time. In the event of an outage, the UPS gives the needed 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 Cloud Website Hosting
The 99.9% network and server uptime warranty which we provide you with is, in part, a result of the electrical power backup setup we have in each of the 3 data centers in which we offer cloud website hosting packages - in Chicago (USA), in Coventry (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you get a new account to create or move your sites, it'll be created on an innovative cloud platform that consists of several clusters dealing with your content. Every single server inside the specific cluster features its own potent enterprise-class UPS to keep it operational no matter what, until several power generators boot up and supply the necessary power for the entire facility to stay operating for a lot of hours. You will not notice anything even if there's an interruption, because our backup units will power all of the devices and we will not need to limit the quantity of working servers or the network equipment that manages the traffic to your websites.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you get 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 excellent infrastructure. The Chicago-based center uses a different UPS for every single web server or network switch located there to make certain that the correct functioning of any unit won't be disturbed until highly effective generators start providing the needed electrical power. The latter can power the entire data center for quite a long time with no need to turn off any machines, so all the websites hosted on our web servers will continue to work at max speed and without any effect on their efficiency. These electrical power backup options allow us to ensure that any outage will never be a reason for your Internet sites to go offline or to have minimized functionality.
