UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. That's a battery used to power a computer or a hosting server to avoid the loss of data in case the main power supply fails for some reason or becomes risky. A diesel generator basically self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are widely-used as a backup in data centers to back up the power supply and to ensure the uninterrupted functioning of all the machines located there. Due to the fact that the UPS works constantly, it offers the desired power for the machines to remain functioning until the generator starts and takes over. Using this sort of a backup is critical for any data center or provider that wants to keep their hardware and data intact in the event of a power surge or outage, since it gives them lots of time to react until the issue is resolved and the main power supply is restored.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Shared Hosting

The 99.9% network and server uptime warranty that we provide is, somewhat, a result of the electric power backup setup we have in every of the three data centers where we offer shared hosting plans - in Chicago (USA), in Coventry (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you acquire a new account to build or move your Internet sites, it'll be set up on a progressive cloud platform which consists of several clusters controlling your content. Every web server inside the given cluster provides its own powerful enterprise-class UPS to keep it working no matter what, until a number of electrical power generators boot up and give the necessary power for the entire center to be functional for several hours. You won't notice anything even in the event there is a disruption, as our backup units will power all the devices and we won't need to restrict the number of working hosting servers or the network equipment which manages the traffic to your websites.

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

The semi-dedicated server accounts we provide you with are created inside a state-of-the-art data center in the town center of Chicago and its electric power backup system is amongst the reasons why we are able to afford to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the machines that are part of our highly developed hosting platform and the network which addresses all of the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS unit is connected to each and every web server to keep it online until several generators kick in. The latter are effective enough to provide electricity for the whole center for several hours without the need to reduce the power consumption or the efficiency of any web server or network device, so even in case there is a blackout, all of the websites hosted on our platform will still be accessible without any disturbances and will operate at top speed.
