The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 means for keeping a web server working in case there are problems with the main power source - an outage or unstable current which cannot keep the web server working properly, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, although it is sometimes called Uninterruptible Power Source too. The UPS is, essentially, an efficient battery that is connected to the server and to the electricity network all the time, so if there is any interruption, it is already working, which enables the server to carry on doing the job without losing any information. The diesel generator is an engine that can power up a whole data center. It needs some time to begin working and it's the UPS which provides that time. These two power solutions are absolutely essential for any facility or provider that wants to stop data loss and hardware damage caused by an unexpected power issue.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Website Hosting

The 99.9% network and web server uptime guarantee that we offer is, in part, a result of the power backup setup which we have in each of the 3 data centers in which we provide website hosting packages - in Chicago (USA), in Coventry (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you purchase a new account to create or move your sites, it shall be created on an innovative cloud platform which consists of many clusters controlling your content. Each machine within the given cluster offers its own efficient enterprise-class UPS to keep it functioning no matter what, until a number of electrical power generators boot up and supply the required power for the entire center to be operational for several hours. You will not notice anything even if there's an outage, since our backup units could power all the devices and we shall not need to limit the total number of working web servers or the network equipment which deals with the traffic to your Internet sites.

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

The semi-dedicated server accounts that we provide are created inside a state-of-the-art data center in the town center of Chicago and its power backup system is amongst the reasons why we are able to afford to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the machines which are part of our advanced website hosting platform and the network that handles all of the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS system is connected to every single machine to keep it online until a number of generators kick in. The latter are powerful enough to offer electricity for the whole data center for several hours without having to limit the power consumption or the productivity of any server or network device, so even if there is a blackout, all the Internet sites hosted on our platform will still be accessible without disturbances and will perform at top speed.
