UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. That is a battery used to power a PC or a server to avoid the loss of info in case the main power source fails for reasons unknown or becomes risky. A diesel generator practically self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are used as a backup in data centers to back up the main power source and to ensure the consistent running of all the machines located there. As the UPS operates all the time, it offers the necessary power for the servers to remain up and running until the generator starts and takes over. Using this sort of a backup is essential for any data center or hosting company that wants to keep their hardware and info intact in the case of a power surge or outage, since it provides them with lots of time to react until the issue is resolved and the main power supply is restored.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Cloud Hosting

If you host your Internet sites inside a cloud hosting account with our company, you can forget about problems caused by electrical power failures, due to the fact that, in contrast to many other providers, we don't keep many different web servers attached to a single UPS. Instead, each and every machine which is part of our avant-garde cloud platform features its own UPS device that will be able to keep it functioning for many hours. In addition, our data centers in the United States, in the UK and in Australia have numerous generators which boot up for minutes and that can power each of the web servers for an extensive time period. That way, the features of your sites or their loading speed will not be affected, so you can enjoy an uninterrupted high-quality web hosting service constantly.

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

The semi-dedicated server accounts which we provide you with are created inside a state-of-the-art data center in downtown 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 innovative web hosting platform and the network which addresses all the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS device is attached to every hosting server to keep it online until a number of generators kick in. The latter are potent enough to supply electric power for the whole center for a long time without having to minimize the power consumption or the overall performance of any server or network device, so even in case there is an outage, all the sites hosted on our platform will still be accessible without interruptions and will function at top speed.
