UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
Discover more info on UPSs & diesel backup generators and learn why each hosting data center has them.
UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. This is a battery used to power your personal computer or a hosting server to avoid the loss of data in case the main source of energy fails for some reason or becomes unstable. A diesel generator pretty much self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are widely-used as a backup in data centers to back up the power supply and to ensure the continuous operation of all of the machines located there. As the UPS works at all times, it provides the necessary power for the machines to remain operational until the generator starts and takes over. Using such a backup is a must for any data center or provider that wants to keep their hardware and info intact in the event of a power surge or outage, since 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 Cloud Hosting
The 99.9% network and server uptime warranty that we offer is, to some extent, a result of the electric power backup setup that we have in every of the three data centers where we offer cloud hosting
plans - in Chicago (USA), in London (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you get a new account to develop or move your Internet sites, it'll be set up on a progressive cloud platform which consists of many clusters controlling your content. Each and every web server in the particular cluster offers its own efficient enterprise-class UPS to keep it up and running no matter what, until several electric power generators boot up and provide the required power for the whole center to be working for several hours. You won't notice anything even when there is an outage, since our backup units could power all of the devices and we won't need to limit the quantity of working web servers or the network equipment that handles the traffic to your sites.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you get a semi-dedicated server
account from our company, it'll be created on a cutting-edge hosting platform in a data center with a fantastic infrastructure. The Chicago-based facility uses a different UPS for each server or network switch located there to make sure that the ideal functioning of any device will not be interrupted until effective generators start supplying the required electricity. The latter are able to power the whole data center for a very long time without the need to turn off any machines, so each of the websites hosted on our servers will continue to operate at maximum speed and with no effect on their functionality. These electric power backup options allow us to ensure that any outage will never be a reason for your websites to go offline or to have lowered functionality.
