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 hosting server to avoid the loss of info when the main power supply fails for whatever reason or becomes unstable. A diesel generator practically self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are widely-used as a backup in data centers to back up the power supply and to guarantee the constant running of all of the machines located there. Due to the fact that the UPS works constantly, it provides the desired power for the servers to remain working 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 case of a power surge or outage, as it provides them with ample time to react until the problem is resolved and the main power supply is restored.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Cloud Website Hosting
The 99.9% network and hosting server uptime guarantee that we offer you is, in part, a result of the electric power backup setup which we have in each of the three data centers where we offer cloud website hosting packages - in Chicago (USA), in London (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you get a new account to create or move your websites, it will be created on a progressive cloud platform which consists of many clusters taking care of your content. Each hosting server within the given cluster features its own effective enterprise-class UPS to keep it up and running no matter what, until a number of electric power generators boot up and give the required power for the whole data center to remain operating for a lot of hours. You'll not notice anything even when there is an outage, due to the fact that our backup units can power all the devices and we will not have to limit the amount of working servers or the network equipment that deals with the traffic to your sites.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers
The semi-dedicated server accounts that we provide you with are created within a state-of-the-art data center in downtown Chicago and its power backup system is among the reasons why we are able to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the machines that are part of our highly developed web hosting platform and the network that manages all the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS system is attached to every single hosting server to keep it online until a number of generators kick in. The latter are powerful enough to provide electricity for the entire center for many hours without the need to restrict the power consumption or the productivity of any hosting server or network device, so even in the event that there is an interruption, all of the Internet sites hosted on our platform will still be accessible without disturbances and will operate at top speed.
