UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems that are kept by web hosting providers within their data centers in case there are interruptions in the primary power supply or the current is unstable and unable to support the correct functioning of the servers based within the facility. UPS refers to Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is a powerful battery which works non-stop. It is connected to both the electrical power network and the web servers at all times, so when the power stops, the UPS is already working, which prevents the web servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is literally an engine which can supply the necessary power to keep the web servers operational for a longer period of time. If there is an outage, the UPS provides the required time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the primary source is restored.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Cloud Website Hosting

If you host your sites within a cloud website hosting account with our company, you will be able to forget about problems caused by electric power failures, since, unlike various other providers, we do not keep multiple web servers attached to a single UPS. Rather, each hosting server which is part of our avant-garde cloud platform features its own UPS unit which will be able to keep it operational for hours on end. Furthermore, our data centers in the U.S., in the UK and in Australia have multiple generators that boot up for minutes and that will be able to power each of the servers for an extensive period of time. This way, the overall performance of your websites or their loading speed will not be affected, so you are able to enjoy an uninterrupted high-quality service constantly.

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

The semi-dedicated server accounts we offer are created in a state-of-the-art data center in the downtown area of Chicago and its power backup system is among the reasons why we are able to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the servers which are part of our advanced hosting platform and the network which manages all the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS unit is connected to each and every server to keep it online until a variety of generators kick in. The latter are powerful enough to provide electric power for the entire facility for a long time without the need to reduce the power consumption or the overall performance of any server or network device, so even when there is an outage, all of the Internet sites hosted on our platform shall still be available with no disturbances and will work at top speed.
