The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 means for keeping a server functional if there are problems with the primary power supply - a disruption or unstable current that cannot keep the web server working correctly, for instance. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, although it is frequently called Uninterruptible Power Source too. The UPS is, in simple terms, a highly effective battery that's connected to the web server and to the power network all the time, so in the event of any disturbance, it is already operating, that permits the server to carry on working without losing any information. The diesel generator is an engine that will power up a whole data center. It does take some time to start working and it's the UPS that provides this time. These two power solutions are absolutely essential for any facility or provider that wants to avoid data loss and hardware damage resulting from an unexpected electric power issue.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Hosting
The 99.9% network and server uptime guarantee that we provide is, in part, a result of the electrical power backup setup that we have in every of the three data centers where we provide hosting packages - in Chicago (USA), in London (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you acquire a new account to create or move your sites, it shall be created on a progressive cloud platform which consists of many clusters taking care of your content. Each and every hosting server within the specific cluster has its own highly effective enterprise-class UPS to keep it functioning no matter what, until quite a few electric power generators boot up and provide the necessary power for the whole center to be functional for a lot of hours. You'll not notice anything even if there's a disruption, due to the fact that our backup units could power each of the devices and we won't have to restrict the number of working hosting servers or the network equipment which handles the traffic to your Internet sites.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you get a semi-dedicated server account from us, it shall be set up on a cutting-edge hosting platform within a data center with an incredible infrastructure. The Chicago-based facility uses an individual UPS for every single web server or network switch located there to make certain that the ideal functioning of any unit won't be disrupted until effective generators start supplying the needed electricity. The latter can easily power the entire center for quite a long time without the need to shut down any devices, so each of the Internet sites hosted on our hosting servers will continue to operate at optimum speed and without any effect on their functionality. These power backup options enable us to ensure that any outage will never be a reason for your websites to go offline or to have minimized functionality.
