UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. That's a battery that is used to power some type of computer or a web server to avoid the loss of data when the main power supply fails for some reason or becomes unsafe. A diesel generator practically self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are widely-used as a backup in data centers to back up the power and to ensure the continuous running of all the web servers located there. As the UPS runs constantly, it offers the necessary power for the servers to remain working until the generator starts and takes over. Using such a backup is critical for any data center or web hosting provider that wants to keep their hardware and information intact in case of a power surge or outage, as it provides them with ample time to react until the problem is resolved and the main power supply is restored.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Web Hosting

The 99.9% network and web server uptime warranty that we offer is, somewhat, a result of the electric power backup setup that we have in every of the three data centers in which we offer web hosting packages - in Chicago (USA), in Coventry (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you acquire a new account to create or move your websites, it'll be set up on an innovative cloud platform which consists of numerous clusters handling your content. Every hosting server within the selected cluster provides its own efficient enterprise-class UPS to keep it functioning no matter what, until quite a few electrical power generators boot up and give the required power for the whole data center to remain functional for many hours. You'll not notice anything even in the event there's a disruption, since our backup units can easily power all of the devices and we won't need to limit the quantity of working servers or the network equipment which addresses the traffic to your sites.

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

The semi-dedicated server accounts which we offer you are created in a state-of-the-art data center in the downtown area of Chicago and its electrical power backup system is one of the reasons why we are able to afford to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the hosting servers that are part of our advanced hosting platform and the network that manages all of the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS device is connected to every single server to keep it online until several generators kick in. The latter are effective enough to supply electric power for the whole center for a long time without having to restrict the power consumption or the efficiency of any hosting server or network device, so even if there is a disruption, all the websites hosted on our platform will still be available without any interruptions and will operate at top speed.
