UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. It is a battery used to power a PC or a web server in order to avoid the loss of info when the main power supply fails for whatever reason or becomes risky. A diesel generator basically self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are widely-used as a backup in data centers to back up the power supply and to guarantee the consistent functioning of all the machines located there. Since the UPS operates at all times, it offers the desired power for the servers to remain up and running until the generator starts and takes over. Using this kind of a backup is essential for any data center or web hosting provider that wants to keep their hardware and info intact in the event of a power surge or outage, due to the fact that it provides them with plenty of time to react until the problem is resolved and the primary power supply is restored.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Hosting
The 99.9% network and hosting server uptime warranty which we offer you is, partly, a result of the electrical power backup setup which we have in each of the three data centers in which we provide hosting packages - in Chicago (USA), in Coventry (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you purchase a new account to build or move your websites, it shall be set up on an innovative cloud platform that consists of numerous clusters handling your content. Each and every server within the selected cluster provides its own potent enterprise-class UPS to keep it up and running no matter what, until a number of power generators boot up and give the required power for the entire facility to remain working for a lot of hours. You'll not notice anything even in the event there is an interruption, as our backup units will be able to power all of the devices and we shall not need to restrict the number of working hosting servers or the network equipment that addresses the traffic to your websites.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you purchase a semi-dedicated server account from us, it will be set up on a cutting-edge hosting platform in a data center with an outstanding infrastructure. The Chicago-based center uses an independent UPS for every web server or network switch located there to make certain that the correct functioning of any device shall not be disrupted until efficient generators start producing the necessary electrical power. The latter can easily power the whole data center for a very long time without the need to shut down any machines, so each of the sites hosted on our hosting servers shall continue to function at max speed and with no effect on their functionality. These electric power backup options enable us to ensure that a possible outage will never be a reason for your websites to go offline or to have reduced functionality.
