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

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Shared Website Hosting

The 99.9% network and web server uptime guarantee that we provide is, partly, a result of the electric power backup setup which we have in each of the 3 data centers in which we offer shared website hosting plans - in Chicago (USA), in Coventry (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you obtain a new account to develop or move your sites, it shall be set up on a cutting-edge cloud platform that consists of a number of clusters taking care of your content. Each and every server in the given cluster offers its own effective enterprise-class UPS to keep it up and running no matter what, until several electrical power generators boot up and provide the necessary power for the whole facility to stay working for many hours. You won't notice anything even when there's an outage, as our backup units can easily power all the devices and we shall not need to restrict the amount of working servers or the network equipment that handles the traffic to your websites.

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

The semi-dedicated server accounts which we offer are created inside a state-of-the-art data center in the downtown area of Chicago and its electric power backup system is among the reasons why we are able to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the machines that are part of our innovative web hosting platform and the network which addresses all of the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS unit is attached to every hosting server to keep it online until several generators kick in. The latter are efficient enough to supply electric power for the whole data center for many hours without having to limit the power consumption or the efficiency of any web server or network device, so even if there is a blackout, all of the websites hosted on our platform will still be available without any disturbances and will work at top speed.
