UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. It is a battery which is used to power your personal computer or a server in order to avoid the loss of information in case the main source of energy fails for some reason or becomes risky. A diesel generator basically self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are used as a backup in data centers to back up the power and to guarantee the constant operation of all of the servers located there. As the UPS runs constantly, it provides the required power for the web servers to remain operational until the generator starts and takes over. Using such a backup is critical for any data center or service provider that wants to keep their hardware and info intact in case of a power surge or outage, due to the fact that it provides them with plenty of time to react until the issue is resolved and the main power supply is restored.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Website Hosting

The 99.9% network and server uptime warranty which we offer is, partly, a result of the power backup setup we have in each of the three data centers where we provide website hosting plans - in Chicago (USA), in London (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you purchase a new account to develop or move your websites, it'll be set up on a cutting-edge cloud platform that consists of a number of clusters taking care of your content. Every single hosting server within the selected cluster offers its own effective enterprise-class UPS to keep it functioning no matter what, until a number of electrical power generators boot up and supply the necessary power for the whole data center to be functional for many hours. You will not notice anything even if there is an outage, due to the fact that our backup units will be able to power each of the devices and we will not have to reduce the number of working servers or the network equipment which manages the traffic to your Internet sites.

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

The semi-dedicated server accounts that we offer you are created inside a state-of-the-art data center in downtown Chicago and its power backup system is one of the reasons why we can afford to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the machines which are part of our highly developed website hosting platform and the network that handles all the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS system is attached to every single hosting server to keep it online until several generators kick in. The latter are powerful enough to supply electrical power for the whole data center for many hours without having to limit the power consumption or the efficiency of any hosting server or network device, so even if there is a blackout, all the sites hosted on our platform will still be available without any interruptions and will operate at top speed.
