UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. That's a battery which is used to power some type of computer or a hosting server in order to avoid the loss of information in case the main source of energy fails for some reason or becomes unsafe. A diesel generator is more or less self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are widely-used as a backup in data centers to back up the power and to ensure the uninterrupted running of all the web servers located there. Due to the fact that the UPS operates constantly, it provides the required power for the machines to remain operational until the generator starts and takes over. Using such a backup is vital for any data center or web hosting provider that wants to keep their hardware and info intact in the event of a power surge or outage, as it gives them enough time to react until the issue is resolved and the main power supply is restored.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Hosting
The 99.9% network and hosting server uptime guarantee that we provide you with is, to some extent, a result of the electrical power backup setup which we have in each of the three data centers where we provide hosting packages - in Chicago (USA), in Coventry (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you get a new account to develop or move your Internet sites, it shall be set up on an innovative cloud platform which consists of many clusters controlling your content. Each and every server in the selected cluster offers its own efficient enterprise-class UPS to keep it operational no matter what, until a lot of electric power generators boot up and provide the necessary power for the whole data center to be operational for several hours. You won't notice anything even in the event there's an interruption, due to the fact that our backup units will be able to power all of the devices and we shall not need to restrict the number of working web servers or the network equipment which addresses the traffic to your websites.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers
The semi-dedicated server accounts that we provide you with are created within a state-of-the-art data center in downtown Chicago and its electric power backup system is amongst the reasons why we are able to afford to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the servers which are part of our sophisticated website hosting platform and the network which handles all of the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS device is connected to each machine to keep it online until numerous generators kick in. The latter are effective enough to deliver electricity for the entire facility for many hours without the need to limit the power consumption or the productivity of any server or network device, so even in case there is an interruption, all of the Internet sites hosted on our platform will still be accessible without disturbances and will perform at top speed.
