UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. This is a battery used to power a computer or a server to prevent the loss of data in case the main source of energy fails for reasons unknown or becomes unstable. A diesel generator basically self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are used as a backup in data centers to back up the main power source and to guarantee the consistent running of all the servers located there. Because the UPS operates all the time, it offers the desired power for the machines to remain functioning until the generator starts and takes over. Using this sort of a backup is vital for any data center or service provider that wants to keep their hardware and data intact in case of a power surge or outage, as it offers them plenty of time to react until the issue is resolved and the main power supply is restored.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Shared Hosting
We offer shared packages in 3 of the largest data centers throughout the world. They're based in the United States, in the UK and in Australia. Given that data protection and server uptime are our priorities, the 3 facilities have a few backup systems against power outages. Several diesel generators can keep the servers operational for hours or even for a few days and every machine that's part of our cutting-edge cloud platform has its own enterprise-class UPS to keep it operational until the generators begin working. This setup is among the reasons why we are able to promise a 99.9% server and network uptime, so if you host your sites inside a shared account with our company, you'll take advantage of a fast and remarkable service without having to worry about any interruptions due to power outages.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The semi-dedicated server accounts which we provide are created in a state-of-the-art data center in the town center of Chicago and its power backup system is amongst the reasons why we are able to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the machines that are part of our innovative hosting platform and the network that handles all of the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS unit is attached to every single hosting server to keep it online until a number of generators kick in. The latter are potent enough to supply electricity for the whole facility for several hours without the need to reduce the power consumption or the productivity of any web server or network device, so even if there is a disruption, all the Internet sites hosted on our platform will still be available without disruptions and will function at top speed.
