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

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Shared Hosting

The 99.9% network and server uptime warranty which we provide you with is, to some extent, a result of the electric power backup setup that we have in each of the 3 data centers where we offer shared hosting plans - in Chicago (USA), in Coventry (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you obtain a new account to develop or move your sites, it will be set up on a cutting-edge cloud platform which consists of a number of clusters controlling your content. Every single machine within the particular cluster offers its own potent enterprise-class UPS to keep it functioning no matter what, until a lot of electric power generators boot up and provide the required power for the whole center to remain operating for many hours. You won't notice anything even if there's a disruption, because our backup units could power all the devices and we shall not have to reduce the amount of working hosting servers or the network equipment which handles the traffic to your websites.

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

If you purchase a semi-dedicated server account from our company, it shall be set up on a cutting-edge hosting platform inside a data center with a superb infrastructure. The Chicago-based center uses a separate UPS for every single hosting server or network switch located there to make sure that the correct operation of any piece of equipment will not be disrupted until effective generators start producing the necessary electricity. The latter can easily power the entire center for a very long time without the need to shut down any machines, so each of the Internet sites hosted on our machines shall continue to operate at maximum speed and with no effect on their functionality. These electrical power backup options permit us to ensure that any outage will never be a reason for your sites to go offline or to have limited functionality.
