UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. That is a battery that is used to power some type of computer or a web server in order to avoid the loss of data when the main power supply fails for some reason or becomes unsafe. A diesel generator pretty much self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are widely-used as a backup in data centers to back up the main power source and to guarantee the constant operation of all of the machines located there. As the UPS works at all times, it provides the necessary power for the machines to remain functioning until the generator starts and takes over. Using this sort of a backup is a must for any data center or hosting company that wants to keep their hardware and info intact in the event of a power surge or outage, due to the fact that it provides them with lots of time to react until the issue is resolved and the primary power supply is restored.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Shared Hosting

If you host your Internet sites inside a shared hosting account with our company, you'll be able to forget about issues caused by power outages, since, unlike all kinds of other providers, we don't keep many different web servers attached to one UPS. Rather, every web server that's part of our avant-garde cloud platform has its own UPS device that will be able to keep it up and running for hours on end. Additionally, our data centers in the U.S., in the United Kingdom and in Australia have a number of generators that boot up for minutes and that will power all the servers for an extensive length of time. In this way, the features of your websites or their loading speed will not be affected, so you can enjoy an uninterrupted high-quality web hosting service all of the time.

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

The semi-dedicated server accounts which we provide are created inside a state-of-the-art data center in the downtown area of Chicago and its electrical power backup system is amongst the reasons why we can afford to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the hosting servers which are part of our advanced hosting platform and the network which deals with all the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS system is attached to each and every server to keep it online until a variety of generators kick in. The latter are powerful enough to deliver electric power for the entire center for many hours without the need to minimize the power consumption or the overall performance of any hosting server or network device, so even when there is an interruption, all the Internet sites hosted on our platform will still be accessible with no disturbances and will perform at top speed.
