UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. This is a battery that is used to power some type of computer or a server in order to avoid the loss of data when the main power supply fails for some reason or becomes unstable. A diesel generator is more or less self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are used as a backup in data centers to back up the main power source and to guarantee the constant operation of all the servers located there. As the UPS operates constantly, it provides the desired power for the servers to remain operational until the generator starts and takes over. Using such a backup is vital for any data center or service provider that wants to keep their hardware and info intact in the case of a power surge or outage, because it provides them with lots of time to react until the problem is resolved and the primary power supply is restored.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Cloud Website Hosting
The 99.9% network and server uptime guarantee which we offer you is, somewhat, a result of the electric power backup setup which we have in each of the three data centers where we provide cloud website hosting
packages - in Chicago (USA), in London (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you acquire a new account to build or move your websites, it'll be set up on a modern cloud platform which consists of a number of clusters taking care of your content. Each web server within the particular cluster has its own effective enterprise-class UPS to keep it functioning no matter what, until quite a few electric power generators boot up and give the required power for the entire facility to be working for many hours. You will not notice anything even if there is an outage, since our backup units will power each of the devices and we will not need to reduce the total number of working hosting servers or the network equipment which addresses the traffic to your Internet sites.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The semi-dedicated server
accounts we provide you with are created within a state-of-the-art data center in downtown 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 sophisticated web hosting platform and the network which handles all of the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS system is attached to each and every machine to keep it online until a number of generators kick in. The latter are efficient enough to provide electric power for the entire data center for a long time without the need to reduce the power consumption or the overall performance of any hosting server or network device, so even if there is an outage, all the websites hosted on our platform will still be available without any disturbances and will perform at top speed.
