UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems which are kept by hosting providers within their data centers in the event that there are interruptions in the primary power source or the current is unsound and unable to sustain the appropriate functioning of the machines situated inside the facility. UPS is short for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's an efficient battery that works non-stop. It's connected to both the electrical power network and the servers at all times, so when the power stops, the UPS is already up and running, which helps prevent the servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is an engine which can provide the necessary electrical power to keep the servers working for a longer period of time. If there is an outage, the UPS gives the required time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the primary power source is restored.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Shared Hosting

If you host your sites in a shared hosting account with us, you will be able to forget about issues caused by power blackouts, simply because, different from various other providers, we do not keep many web servers attached to only one UPS. Alternatively, every single hosting server which is part of our avant-garde cloud platform has its own UPS device which shall be able to keep it operational for hours on end. Also, our data centers in the U.S., in the UK and in Australia have many different generators which boot up for minutes and which can power all the web servers for an extensive amount of time. That way, the functionality of your Internet sites or their loading speed will not be affected, so you may enjoy an uninterrupted high-quality web hosting service constantly.

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

The semi-dedicated server accounts that we offer are created inside a state-of-the-art data center in downtown Chicago and its power backup system is amongst the reasons why we are able to afford to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the servers that are part of our advanced hosting platform and the network that handles all of the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS device is connected to each hosting server to keep it online until several generators kick in. The latter are potent enough to supply electrical power for the entire center for many hours without the need to limit the power consumption or the efficiency of any server or network device, so even if there is a blackout, all of the sites hosted on our platform will still be available with no disruptions and will function at top speed.
