UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
Know more details on UPSs & diesel backup generators and learn why every single hosting data center features them.
UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems which are kept by web hosting service providers within their data centers in the event there are interruptions in the primary power supply or the current is unstable and unable to maintain the proper operation of the servers situated inside the facility. UPS is short for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is an effective battery which 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 functioning, which prevents the machines from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is definitely an engine that can deliver the needed power to keep the machines working for a longer period of time. In the case of an outage, the UPS gives the necessary time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the primary source is restored.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Shared Website Hosting
The 99.9% network and server uptime guarantee that we offer you is, to some extent, a result of the power backup setup we have in each of the three data centers in which we offer shared website hosting packages - 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 an innovative cloud platform which consists of many clusters dealing with your content. Each and every machine within the given cluster offers its own highly effective enterprise-class UPS to keep it functioning no matter what, until several electric power generators boot up and supply the necessary power for the whole data center to remain operating for many hours. You will not notice anything even if there is an outage, because our backup units could power all of the devices and we will not need to reduce the quantity of working web servers or the network equipment which manages the traffic to your Internet sites.
