The UPS and the diesel generator are two instruments for keeping a server functional in case there are problems with the main power source - a disruption or unstable current that can't keep the web server working properly, for instance. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, although it can often be called Uninterruptible Power Source too. The UPS is, basically, a highly effective battery that is connected to the machine and to the electricity network at all times, so in the event of any interruption, it's already operating, that permits the web server to continue running without losing any information. The diesel generator is an engine that will power up the whole data center. It needs some time to begin working and it is the UPS which gives it this time. These two power solutions are a necessity for any facility or service provider that wants to prevent data loss and hardware damage as a consequence of an unexpected electric power issue.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Shared Hosting

If you host your Internet sites within a shared hosting account with our company, you'll be able to forget about troubles caused by power blackouts, since, in contrast to many other providers, we don't keep many hosting servers attached to only one UPS. Alternatively, every single hosting server which is part of our avant-garde cloud platform comes with its own UPS unit that will be able to keep it up and running for many hours. Also, our data centers in the USA, in the United Kingdom and in Australia have many different generators that boot up for minutes and which can easily power all the servers for an extensive amount of time. In this way, the overall performance of your sites or their loading speed shall not be affected, so you can enjoy an uninterrupted high-quality service all the time.

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

The semi-dedicated server accounts we offer you are created inside a state-of-the-art data center in the downtown area of Chicago and its electric 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 advanced hosting platform and the network which manages all of the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS device is connected to each and every web server to keep it online until several generators kick in. The latter are effective enough to deliver electricity for the whole data center for many hours without the need to minimize the power consumption or the productivity of any hosting server or network device, so even if there is a disruption, all of the sites hosted on our platform will still be available with no disruptions and will perform at top speed.
