UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. That's a battery which is used to power a PC or a server to prevent the loss of information if the main source of energy fails for reasons unknown or becomes unstable. A diesel generator pretty much self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are used as a backup in data centers to back up the power and to ensure the consistent functioning of all of the servers located there. As the UPS runs at all times, it offers the necessary power for the web servers to remain operational until the generator starts and takes over. Using this kind of a backup is essential for any data center or provider that wants to keep their hardware and info intact in case 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 Shared Web Hosting

The 99.9% network and hosting server uptime guarantee that we offer you is, partly, a result of the electrical power backup setup we have in each of the three data centers in which we provide shared web hosting packages - in Chicago (USA), in London (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you acquire a new account to build or move your sites, it shall be created on an innovative cloud platform which consists of a number of clusters taking care of your content. Each and every machine within the specific cluster provides its own potent enterprise-class UPS to keep it working no matter what, until a number of electrical power generators boot up and provide the required power for the whole facility to remain working for a lot of hours. You'll not notice anything even when there is a disruption, due to the fact that our backup units will be able to power each of the devices and we shall not have to limit the total number of working web servers or the network equipment that manages the traffic to your Internet sites.

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

If you get a semi-dedicated server account from us, it shall be set up on a cutting-edge hosting platform inside a data center with a superb infrastructure. The Chicago-based data center uses a different UPS for every single web server or network switch located there to ensure that the proper operation of any piece of equipment will not be disturbed until powerful generators start producing the necessary electrical power. The latter are able to power the entire facility for quite a while without having to shut down any equipment, so all the websites hosted on our servers shall continue to operate at optimum speed and without any effect on their functionality. These electrical power backup options allow us to ensure that a possible outage will never be a reason for your sites to go offline or to have reduced functionality.
