The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 instruments for keeping a server operational if there are issues with the primary power source - an interruption or unstable current which cannot keep the hosting server working properly, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, though it is sometimes called Uninterruptible Power Source also. The UPS is, in essence, an effective battery that is attached to the machine and to the power network constantly, so in the case of any interruption, it is already functioning, which allows the hosting server to keep on running without losing any information. The diesel generator is an engine which can power up an entire data center. It needs some time to start working and it is the UPS that gives it that time. Those two power solutions are a requirement for any facility or provider that wants to avoid information loss and hardware damage resulting from an unexpected electric power issue.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Cloud Web Hosting

If you host your sites in a cloud web hosting account with us, you can forget about issues caused by electrical power blackouts, due to the fact that, unlike all kinds of other providers, we don't keep multiple servers attached to only one UPS. Instead, every single machine that's part of our avant-garde cloud platform has its own UPS device which shall be able to keep it working for hours on end. Additionally, our data centers in the U.S., in the United Kingdom and in Australia have many different generators that boot up for minutes and which will be able to power each of the hosting servers for an extensive stretch of time. In this way, the functionality of your websites or their loading speed shall not be affected, so you can enjoy an uninterrupted high-quality hosting service constantly.

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

The semi-dedicated server accounts we offer are created within a state-of-the-art data center in downtown Chicago and its electric power backup system is among the reasons why we can afford to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the hosting servers which are part of our sophisticated website hosting platform and the network which manages all of the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS unit is connected to every server to keep it online until a number of generators kick in. The latter are effective enough to supply electricity for the entire facility for a long time with no need to minimize the power consumption or the overall performance of any hosting server or network device, so even when there is a disruption, all of the sites hosted on our platform shall still be available without disruptions and will function at top speed.
