The UPS and the diesel generator are two devices for keeping a server working if there are troubles with the main power source - an outage or unreliable current that can't keep the server working properly, for instance. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, though it can often be referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source also. The UPS is, essentially, a highly effective battery that's connected to the hosting server and to the power network constantly, so in the event of any disruption, it's already working, that permits the server to carry on doing the job without losing any information. The diesel generator is an engine that can power up an entire data center. It does take some time to begin working and it is the UPS that gives it that time. These two power solutions are absolutely essential for any facility or service provider that wants to prevent data loss and hardware damage as a result of an unexpected power issue.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Hosting

If you host your sites within a hosting account with us, you can forget about troubles caused by power outages, simply because, unlike various other providers, we don't keep several hosting servers attached to only one UPS. Alternatively, each web server that is part of our avant-garde cloud platform has its own UPS device that will be able to keep it operational for hours on end. Additionally, our data centers in the United States, in the United Kingdom and in Australia have a number of generators that boot up for minutes and that will power all of the servers for an extensive stretch of time. This way, the overall performance of your Internet sites or their loading speed won't be affected, so you are able to enjoy an uninterrupted high-quality web hosting service at all times.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The semi-dedicated server accounts that we provide are created inside a state-of-the-art data center in downtown Chicago and its electrical power backup system is among the reasons why we are able to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the machines that are part of our innovative website hosting platform and the network which manages all of the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS unit is connected to each web server to keep it online until a number of generators kick in. The latter are effective enough to provide electric power for the whole facility for several hours without the need to reduce the power consumption or the overall performance of any server or network device, so even in case there is an outage, all the sites hosted on our platform will still be accessible with no interruptions and will work at top speed.
