UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. It's a battery used to power your personal computer or a web server in order to avoid the loss of information if the main source of energy fails for some reason or becomes risky. A diesel generator practically self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are widely-used as a backup in data centers to back up the main power source and to ensure the uninterrupted running of all of the servers located there. Because the UPS runs constantly, it provides the desired power for the servers to remain functioning until the generator starts and takes over. Using this sort of a backup is essential for any data center or provider that wants to keep their hardware and info intact in the event of a power surge or outage, as it provides them with lots of time to react until the problem is resolved and the main power supply is restored.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Hosting
The 99.9% network and hosting server uptime warranty which we provide you with is, to some extent, a result of the electrical power backup setup that we have in each of the three data centers where we provide hosting packages - in Chicago (USA), in London (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you purchase a new account to create or move your sites, it will be set up on a modern cloud platform which consists of numerous clusters handling your content. Every single hosting server in the given cluster features its own efficient enterprise-class UPS to keep it up and running no matter what, until several electric power generators boot up and provide the necessary power for the entire facility to stay operational for many hours. You'll not notice anything even if there is an interruption, since our backup units could power each of the devices and we shall not have to reduce the number of working servers or the network equipment that manages the traffic to your websites.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers
The semi-dedicated server accounts which we provide are created within a state-of-the-art data center in the town center of Chicago and its power backup system is one of the reasons why we are able to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the machines that are part of our sophisticated hosting platform and the network which deals with all the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS device is connected to every server to keep it online until a variety of generators kick in. The latter are potent enough to provide electricity for the entire facility for many hours without having to restrict the power consumption or the efficiency of any hosting server or network device, so even in case there is an interruption, all the sites hosted on our platform shall still be accessible without disruptions and will work at top speed.
